House Mouse Gifts to Tie

Hi all :-) Did you have a good weekend ?? I really enjoyed watching the Tour De France which set off from Leeds ,, it was lovely to see my home county showcased so beautifully. The weather was gorgeous and it was brilliant that so many thousands of people turned out to cheer the cyclists on ,, wish I was there :-) 

Did you see the yellow sheep ?? LOL ,, a farmer died all his sheep in honour of the event,  they all have a yellow jersey ,,, you have to love the Yorkshire sense of humour :-)

AND the finals of Wimbledon !  BRILLIANT !! ,, wish I was there too ,,,, :-) 
and as for the World Cup I am cheering on Holland :-)

Anyhoo's ,, what am I doing here ??? Oh yes ,, a reminder for you to PLEASE join in with the House Mouse and Friends ANYTHING GOES Challenge. I am the hostess and I would LOVE it if you would join in ,,, boost the numbers a bit ;-)

As you know I do love shakers so this time I made a pocket using some vellum and a star die :-)

I even finished the inside this time :-)

Oooo absolutely adorable.

My OH was proud too, to see his beloved Yorkshire looking so fabby too - although all his friends who still live in Yorkshire, were all not very impressed with the road closures - shame about CAV though, Luv Sam x

This is a gorgeous card Lorraine. I love every detail - and there are lots! But the muted sparkle of the star sequins in the vellum pocket is very special. Thanks for playing along at Just Add Ink.
