House Mouse and Friends ,,,, Photo Inspiration Challenge :-)

Hi all :-) At this very moment our plane will be revving up on the runway at Gatwick airport,, unless we are delayed !! :-)

This time it is my turn to choose the theme, I thought a cupcake photo inspiration would be nice :-) We all know that these meeces and furry friends love their cake !

For my card I used this very cute House MouseCake for One image,,, I love his cross eyed expression,,, he is having a sugar rush I think lol . I stamped the image onto Neenah card and coloured with copics before cutting out the image. I then make a table, covered with a white cloth, to pop the image on, I used my Grand Calibur to cut out the circles as this is quite a big image. The cupcake paper is from My Minds EyeLife of the Party’ and the teal spotty paper is from Kaiser Crafts. I inked the edges with Tumbled Glass DI and I used some Robins Nest Dew Drops, Pink Bias Tape, from The Ribbon Girl. I made a rose using a My Favorite Things Rolled Rose die and added a tag made using a Memory Box Bistro Label

So this is the photo I chose ,,, isn’t it yummy !! Smile
