Feeling Rosy

Evening Folks!
It's been a beautiful sunny day here in Hampshire - let's hope the summer is finally on it's way!

Well, it happened again - I was planning on sorting / tidying some crafty bits yesterday when I got sidetracked (as usual lately) and ended up making a card instead!!

I was trying to sort my wooden stamp collection and came across this very neglected HM stamp called 'Feeling Rosy' which seemed perfect for the challenge at As you like It - which is your favourite Food or Drink. The colours on the stamp just happened to match some trimmings of stripey LOTV paper waiting to be put away ......  yep a card had to be made!! I raided my collection of aqua scraps, grabbed the trusty favourite promarker colours and this is the finished result:

Love the contented look on that little mousey face - perhaps bathing in rose hip tea could become the next big spa treatment???

Feeling quite proud that I just used scraps on this, along with a piece of equally old ric-rac and a brad. I can't pretend it has made a huge dent in the amount of stash to use up but small steps hey!! It is a sort of tidying ....

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

As You Like It - Favourite Food or Drink - For me this is a no brainer, it has to be tea. I am a total tea addict, I've been drinking it ever since I was a baby. With a mug of strong 'builders' tea I can face most things but without it nothing gets done - don't even bother to speak to me!!

I love promarkers - Inspired by a film or song - This mouse remind me of the Dormouse at the tea party in Alice in Wonderland
Word Art Wednesdays - Anything goes
Deep Ocean Challenge - Furry / Feathered Friends
Passion for Promarkers - Furry Friends
Gruffies and Guests - Add a number or Anything goes
The Ribbon Girl - June Card Challenge
Colour Crazy Craft Challenge - Time for Tea colour inspiration:

House Mouse and friends Monday Challenge - Butterflies or anything HM goes
Pile It On - Tic Tac Toe - Centre Row

& Stamping Sensations - Feature a Creature
