I finally managed to get into the craftie space yesterday - (still didn't get anything finished as had to go play in a County Final last night) but have ignored everything this morning (like cleaning) and put a few dabs of glue in the appropriate places and (almost) completed this!

I say almost as there's no sentiment yet - still thinking whether to leave blank on the front or not - but it's been so long since I posted I just took the pic as soon as I could.

The image is of course one of the 'Mice is Nice' series from LOTV. - Been lying in my stash for ages so thought it was about time I used it!

Papers were bought last year (yes I know - LAST year!!!) at a craft show in Manchester. At the stall I got talking to another crafter and we bought the 'bargain pack' (not cheap!) between us and then sat on the floor splitting up the pack - I wouldn't have bought them otherwise.

Everything on here is from my stash (and even though I am trying my best to use it, it ain't getting any smaller!!)
Inside is decorated to match.

I have planned to spend another ENTIRE day making messy with paper and glue - no distractions I hope!

Challenges -
Fab n Funky - Flowers/Ribbon/Pearls
Crafting By Designs - Anything Goes
Fantastic Tuesday - Anything Goes
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Clear It Out - Anything Goes

Thanks for visiting - grabbing a cuppa and now going on a calling spree in Blogland....
oh and the aforementioned County Final?
 - Well a nice win for my four and a good way to finish off our 2014 County campaign -
only another 11 days to go and the summer outdoor season finishes!
