Good Afternoon!
Hubby been watching Football today, so I've had time to play. Course I've made a New Years Resolution! Going to try and use some of the large amount of dies I seem to have? I keep them in a CD wallet which is open on the top of my card drawer, I've  got fed up of them spilling out onto the floor, so I bought a couple of plastic boxes to store them....Surprising how many I don't use, not because I don't like them! Just because I'd forgotten they were there..

This little sweetie lives at Bugaboo Stamps and is called Mouse - Big Balloon
Such a handy little image when you can put anything inside the balloon... 'Happy Birthday' today.
Coloured with Copics the 'grass' is pencil. Papers from stash. Memory Box/Magnolia/Crealies dies used..

Update on hubby:
 We went to Wythenshaw just before Christmas, hubby had another scan and the results came  back saying  the tumor hasn't grown any since October.. Told us to go away and have a lovely Christmas and they will see him again in March! When he will have another scan.
 So that's what we did, quite, but, lovely. 
Let me take this opportunity to thank you all for your lovely comments and good wishes this year.
I know I've not been leaving comments as much as I would wish, but,
it really as been a hard 6 months to come to terms with all that's happening. 
So whilst I'm publishing this card.
 I'd like to wish you all 

Keep Crafting! xx
