House Mouse 'Get Well' card

 Hello folks!  It's been a while. I hope you are fine and dandy.  Here's a card I made using one the the stamps being launched today on Create and Craft.  When I saw the little mouse 'mending' his little toy I thought it would make a great 'Get Well' card.   I also thought a warm and cosy hot water would be a great card base. 
I drew the hot water bottle shape on some sturdy card and covered it with backing paper from the House Mouse CDrom.  I stamped, coloured the mice with my Prisma colour pencils, cut them out and layered them up.  I adhered them to some loops of ribbon onto the card.  The letters are cut from funky foam using a Cuttlebug alphabet and topped with some Stickles glitter glue.  I finished off the card with a ribbon bow.
Enjoy your weekend
Ciao for now!
