Pesky Mice! @ MAWTT

I know I know but it's just a phase! I told you I loved the Mary J mini cards and now I can't stop making them! But you have to admit they are just the cutest ickle fings!

Thursday again (my these weeks go quickly) means only one thing!
Time for a new challenge at 
And this week my lovely friend Sue is hosting her first challenge since she joined us. We are all loving that MAWTT is going from strength to strength and this week we finally made it into the top 10 challenge blogs! That's because you lovely people join in our challenges every week, and this week Sue has given us a fantastic theme


and inside
I spent my first year in blogland making nothing but 6x6 square cards and now I can't stop making mini round ones! I just don't know why I didn't make them sooner! The papers are Echo Park, the sentiment is computer generated and the cute little image was kindly given to us to play with by this weeks fabulous sponsor

and this weeks prize is a $10 voucher to spend instore

I did actually cut off his tail (ouch) and replace it with a desire wire one!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of this challenge, the winners of last weeks and some gorgeous inspiration from the lovely MAWTT girls.

I'm lovin' my time in blogland at the moment, I've made some really lovely friends and today I'm picking one up from the train station (Pami) and heading north to visit another! No doubt those of you that know Lisa (My Makes & Me) will see pictures of us all on her blog soon! Tomorrow I'm hoping to meet a few more at the Manchester show.

Thank you for visiting me
