Sledging House Mouse

Welcome to my new followers and is nice to have you here and hope to drop in on you soon.
Hello, hope you are all ok and managing some crafting time.  I have not been around as much as l would have liked to have been - allotment and garden take up quite a bit of my time now.
I made this card last night for a couple of challenges. I coloured the leaf first then the mouse but they blended into each other so just bleached out some of the leaf with the colourless blender - knew it would come in useful one day. This stamp set was a bargain at half price from my local craft shop at Brighouse earlier this year.
