Say cheese!

I have spent the morning running about trying to get someone to fix my printer....no luck as yet! Drove 30 miles to the store where I bought it, they ran the maker Epson who told me to take it to a ring a store 5 mins from my home only they are not there!! Pulling my hair out with no printer!! But at least its making me use my stamps more lol. This card was made using my lovely new House Mouse stamps from Joanna Sheen. Its for a grandad who has no hobbies, no interests so hopefully this will suit lol.
Image - Joanna Sheen HM Birthdays
Papers - old papers from qvc kit
Medium - prisma pencils, glitter,
Embellishments - stitching
I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Inspirational Card Challenges - followed the lovely sketch
2. House Mouse Monday - photo inspiration
5. Stamptacular Sunday - use two images
6. Stampavie and More - swirls
7. Crafty Angels - someone old, something new (old is papers new is stamps)

Oh, I feel your pain...lol! I hate it when technology doesn't work. I love your traditional stamp though...Those mice are adorable. I have always been intimidated by the House Mouse images. So darling they are, but I fear my limited coloring skills wouldn't do their cuteness any justice :)

Hi Pinky

A gorgeous card - I love those little house mice .. .. but I am feeling a little sorry for the poor gent who has no hobbies or interests? Poor chappie.

Sorry to hear about your printer. It feels like your arms have been cut off without one doesn't it.

I have an Epson and must admit it is the best printer I have ever had. It has been a real work-horse.

Hope you get yours sorted soon.

Love Jules xx
