News about a house and a card with a mouse...

Update on our house hunting...the one we looked at yesterday was just perfect, open staircase, big bedrooms, two rooms downstairs, big kitchen then disapointment a tiny yard arggghhhh!!! getting annoyed now lol.....but good news is we have a viewing on Monday, whilst we were out last night we had a drive past & it looks basically the same but the yard looks bigger...but after talking to NIge & the girls we have decided if the one on monday is no good we will take the other one. It is gorgeous & just perfect, just got no garden, but as Nige & the girls said behind the house there is a field...so a bit of a compromise x

Onto my mousey card...the image I have used is a freebie from Delightful Inspirations I only found this blog recently, I think it's a fab idea. You get a free image to download on the first week of the month, use that enter the challenge, & then for the next they email you a free image to use for the next week & so on....If your as confused as I am pop on over & have a look lol x

Really enjoyed making this card, have decided to try & use up some of my half pieces of paper that are lying around all over the place, need to use some up before we move lol....

Hi Shell

Sounds like good news on the house front.

At least you know you have a new home - the only question being how big your garden is. You must feel relieved to know you are half sorted.

Lovely card and such a cute image. I love your sentiment too.

I too am on the same mission as you .. .. use up some of the small pieces. (I save such silly little bits - but sometimes they are all you need aren't they).

Have a good weekend.

Hope all goes well on Monday.

Love Jules xx
