I've been a poorly sick girl this week. I had Monday all planned out as a crafting day, but my body had other ideas. Early Monday morning my insides decided they would prefer to be on the outside, and set about their self-imposed task with what I felt was unnecessary fervour. Even water was not tolerated until late that night, which of course is very dehydrating. After 48 hours of no food I was a lot happier, but pretty feak and weeble.

Today I was back at choir practise with a better voice than usual - must have been all that diaphragm exercise - and this afternoon, after a rest, I thought stuff the house-work (sorry DH), I HAVE to get DH's god-son's birthday card done. It will be late now, but at least it will exist.

Enter Henry Mouse from Whiff of Joy.

I wish I knew what these paper scraps were, because I'd buy them again. The biggest challenge with this card was matching the colours of the papers with my Copics without making the cake look mouldy. I would love to cover it in glittery Stickles but I think that would not be suitable for a 6-year-old boy, right? Henry is almost too cute as it is. I've compromised by inking it with my new Lightning Black Dew Drop which looks like coal with pyrites in it - gorgeous.

Maybe I shouldn't have chosen the cake at all - now I'm hungry.

This is for:
Charisma Cardz: 4 legged friends
Creative Card Crew: animal antics
A Spoonful of Sugar: create a tag
Stampin' for the Weekend: paws for thought
Whiff of Joy: Kylie's sketch
