Just Because - Relax with Mr Mouse :)

Happy Saturday Everyone!
I hope you are having lovely Spring weather, we are here in Texas, the usual storms have not yet arrived so we are enjoying sunshine and warmer temps. One thing that is not so good though are the dreaded weeds, I feel we are fighting a loosing battle and we've had to resort to spraying them as they just popped up too fast to pull them out.
After an afternoon of yard work I feel the need for a little R & R, just like the little character on my card today.
He is a new image from Meljens Design and he sure is a cutie!

I found a few challenges to go along with him:

Stamp With Fun - 3 Papers, 3 Flowers and 2 Buttons
Mojo Monday - Sketch
The Pink Elephant - Nature
Stamp With Sarah Kay - Green
Creative Cottage - Buttons and Bows
CRAFT - Buttons
By The Cute and Girly - Fairytales (I definitely think a mouse under toadstool would be reading a fairy tale :))
Practical Scrappers want to see markers
Simon Says Stamp want a Card for A Child
Handfull Of Stamps want you to Digi It
Papercutz want 3 patterned papers

Card Recipe:
Image - Mushroom Mouse by Meljens Designs
Paper - My Minds Eye Home collection
Medium - Copic Markers
Sentiment - Colorbok
Buttons - Dress It Up by Jesse James

Inside is more of the gorgeous glittered dp and a message mat.

I just love cute this little guy is, he certainly looks like he's enjoying his book.
I hope you can find some "me time" this weekend and do a little of what you really want to do :)
