Cat Nap

Morning peeps.  Hope you are all well.  It is very overcast here today, no winds though so that is a blessing.  Looks like it might rain before too long,  My card today is another just because I want to and to use my House Mouse stamps that I have neglected again today.

Now I have had this stamp awhile, hubby went out on his own and bought it for me as he knows I like HM stamps.  I was a bit worried about colouring it up and that's why it has stayed in my HM stamps box.  Hubby had even asked if I didn't like it.  When I got started I thought I wasn't going to enjoy making a mess of this lovely stamp.  Lol!!!  But once I got started I found I was enjoying it.  Whether I made a mess of it I will leave up to you!!!  Whether it is a mess or not, I ENJOYED PLAYING WITH IT.
