Splish Splash ,, a Citrus Bath :-)

Good Morning all :-) I hope you had a fabulous weekend and managed to relax and get crafty.

Summer is here and one of my guilty pleasures ( I have many,, lol ) is a Gin and Tonic before dinner ,,, in fact 6pm is gin oclock in the Aquilina household  and this House Mouse 'Splish Splash a Citrus Bath' is just up my street ,,, I think it is supposed to be lemonade :-)

I made this as a reminder for you to join us in the House Mouse and Friends 'Dies and/or Punches' Challenge 
As you know I am a House Mouse lover,,, I think these stamps have so much character,, I think of these meeces as real pets ,,, am I mad ?? ,, don't answer that ,,, lol

aww just look at that cute little face ,,, maybe I should have coloured him blue cos he must surely be bloomin freezing in there :-)

I have just got this Memory Box 'Cheers Script' die and think it will be well used !! :-)

I didn't have time to finish the inside so will get onto that now ,, this deserves a nice inside don't ya think :-)

I do hope you will join in ,,, PRETTY PLEASE :-) We really have some fabulous prizes on offer and hardly any entries !!! So you would have a good chance of winning !!! :-)

This is a sweet refreshing card. Love the soft colors and your stitching. I will answer one thing - - - you are NOT mad because if you were, I'd be right there next to you and I don't want to be considered mad. LOL Enjoy your week ahead.
