House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge


It's that time again for a brand new challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends challenge blog.  The theme this time picked by DT member America is:-

so we want to see all your school themed creations.  As usual, we have some fab prizes up for grabs from our fab sponsors!
 One lucky winner will get a $25 gift voucher to spend in their on-line store 

My card was made very quickly late last night as I've had a right lazy last few weeks and have barely made a thing.  The Gruffies stamp is the only thing I had in my stash that was remotely suitable as he was holding a book but I think I just about managed to pull it off!  I coloured him in with my flexmarkers and the papers are a mixture of a Summer Driggs "moments" freebie kit and the school text paper is another freebie download that I've had for ages!  The ruler is simply a ruler clipart image that I printed out and cut out. 

It's my birthday today and have been spoilt rotten with breakfast in bed and some lovely goodies both crafty and non-crafty.  Luckily, it's a bank holiday so the hubby is also off to share my day!  I am now almost 7 months pregnant and have just been given some iron tablets after my blood tests revealed I was a little anaemic.  I'm hoping that after a week or so of taking them I'll feel a little perkier and will feel more like making stuff and will hopefully blog a little bit more.

Thanks for looking!
