House Mouse in monochrome

These days I seem to have time only to craft on a Friday, after I've got the bedding washed and out on the line, and have run the vacuum round the house. What happens to the rest of the week I wonder?

Well this week was a little busier than usual, because the church work began half a day late, and I spent all yesterday on a magical mystery picnic tour with the ladies' choir I've just been accepted into. I was introduced to it by Glad in church, and it's such a giggle, even though we worked out I'm the youngest by 17 years! I had my first rehearsal last week, and this week was a performance - one of the songs without music - so it was a challenge. OK, that's where half my week went, learning music.

But this afternoon I managed to sneak a little fun with Monica and her mum on this card. This week's theme at House Mouse is "monochrome", and I used this sketch from Sketch Saturday which I flipped horizontally:

I used Kaiser Craft papers, paper and stickers from the Rebecca Sower Spring kit, Prima flowers, American Crafts brads and ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley, and the image is House Mouse of course, coloured with Copics.
