Just Snoozin'

Morning Folks!

Wish I was just able to snooze away in a hammock but sadly half term is over so it's back to work for me today! Still, it's not all bad, there's a new challenge starting over at House Mouse and friends and the theme is one of my favourites:


Here's my card for this fortnight ( I can't believe how quickly my guest DT time is going - sniff!), I've used a lovely Gruffies stamp called Hammock hibernation and teamed him up with papers from First Edition New leaf and Blank Canvas pads plus some Graphic 45 French Country papers which reminded me of the hammock pattern. You can also see another bit of the new trellis Memory Box die at the sides - my new favourite toy!! The relax sentiment is from a crafter's companion stamp set. 

 Thank goodness for fine tips on promarkers when colouring the hammock!!

I also decorated the inside :
