House Mouse

Hi Everyone, thanks for stopping by. Today Im posting early as it was late when I posted last night and I kept nodding off, almost to the point where my blog wasn't updated and the challenge would have come to an end!! I did make it tho and I'm here again today so I'm still going strong.
Today I'd like to show you some colouring I've done with my Promarkers that I am really chuffed with. The stamp I have used is a House Mouse one called 'No Cheese Please'. I was lucky enough to get hold of this stamp at our crop on Saturday. A lady who has been in touch with our dear Leader Eileen has been getting rid of lots of her craft items. This time it was her House Mouse collection she was selling and all the money raised would be donated to charity. There were between 60-70 stamps of various sizes and they were.... wait for it..... £1 EACH!! Well that was too good a bargain to miss and I ended up with 4! Everyone at the crop had their pick and all the stamps sold, hence a good amount going to this lady's chosen charity.
This is the stamp I bought. I like these as they give you a lovely coloured picture on the top which helps when you want to colour after stamping. Im always unsure what colours to do and where to shade. 
This is my stamped image and colouring. It looks a bit paler in the pic than it does in real life but it does give you some idea. Please let me know what you think. Now I just need to make it into a card!! At least that will be a posting for another day.
Anyway I must go now as I'm having a bit of a clearout today and tidy up. Im quite pleased with what I've done so far so need to get back to it before going on the school run.
Bye for now, happy crafting x
