And another one (mices) bites the dust!

But, it is sad as they are really so cute! However, none last night, so the traps are now set downstairs in my space to see if there are any other mice running around down here, and if not, then they will go into John's workshop to see is he has any.

Meanwhile, I have started to clean up my space a bit - so not a lot of crafting is happening.  However, I did this yesterday - when I was playing with the idea of using my Martha Stewart edge punches to create a frame.  Not very well but I am going to enter it into the AnnaBelle Stamps challenge - Just Say It In Frames.

The stamp is from Sugar Nellie, called Hamish with Tractor, and it is coloured with Copics.  The background is sponged with chalk and the sentiment is from Stamp It. The image is fussy cut and attached using dimentionals and the reason there is ribbon on it is that I tried to take the mounted image off and tore the background and could not be bothered to  cut a new one - just added the ribbon trim! Very lazy!! The whole lot is mounted on some Laura Ashley card from a 2010 calendar (recycled), with a cream folded card behind it.  Inside uses some more of the LA card and another Stamp It sentiment:  see?

I apologise for the photo's but it was raining outside and cold, and I was in a hurry.
