House Mouse & Friends Challenge and a Sketch

I hope you are having a good weekend so far and that you remembered to “Fall Back” I am always very glad to get my hour back for some reason or other my body just isn’t happy with the loss of the hour in the spring.
I have been so busy, we brought a lot of things back from the cottage and I have spent a lot of time finding homes for things, I am still digging in boxes to find crafting items when I want to make a card. It’s not really as much fun as if everything was in it’s place. I did manage to get a card done for the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge, it is a blog hop that ends Saturday night at 11.59, I have commented on all the blogs but hadn’t finished my card. I used the current sketch challenge from Seems a Little Sketchy you will find HERE.
Cardstock GP white and Red a gift from my friend Georgina
Patterned paper a Christmas pack from Stampin’ up
Snowflakes one cut with a sizzix die the other an EK punch
Red & white baker’s twine, rhinestones and liquid pearl white opal
Challenges I am entering:
Anything Goes with Twine…House Mouse and Friends challenge Blog
Sketch #51    at  Seems a Little Sketchy.
Thanks for stopping by today and if you “fall back” to standard time enjoy your extra hours sleep.
Have a crafty day

Those House Mouse images are so cute.
I like the pearly look on the fur of his hat.
