I've gone all dotty, and so has Henry Mouse

Okay, so the Papertake Weekly challenge this week calls for spots,dots and circles so circles and spots and dots they have lol. I wanted to use Henry Celebrating Mouse by Whiff of Joy - is he just not the cutest little mouse ever!!!

So, I started off with a circle card, I love making different shaped cards. I used scalloped scissors to cut the large brown mat. A couple more layers of circles and dotty paper and even a round sentiment and the card was done.

I carried the theme through to the inside of the card, the "wishes" is die cut with the Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet set . The sentiment is straight, it's the wonky angle I took the photo at that makes it look all skew-whiff.

Recipe
Henry Celebrating Mouse by Whiff of Joy was coloured with Prismacolors and a touch of H2O's for a little bit of sparkle
Papers are MME - the huge Magnolia pad
Sentiment stamps - front is Stampin Up and inside is them old See D's again
Flowers are a mix of what I made, Crafts U Love and Prima

I also received this wonderful gift from NenaMarie yesterday. Isn't it just amazing!! The colouring of Willow is sensational and the chocolate was delish (yep it's ALL GONE lol). Thank you so much sweetie, it made my day especially as I am still loaded with not only this rotten flu but a gastro bug as well - oh joy!!
