Cupcake and mouse birthday card

Good morning everyone :)

I hope you all had a good weekend and if you didn't, I hope the week ahead is full of good things.

While looking at the digi images over at Sassy Cheryl's Digis I came across this little mouse and it sort of ended up in my basket along with the stamp that I really needed. is the kind of image you could use a lot......isn't it?...... :)

Do you know what I also really love digi stamps for?.....Colouring pages for my 5 year old, Phoebe!
I can make them full size on the page or squeeze in loads of images and it keeps her quiet for ages......

My card today is made using papers by Echo Park ~ Sweet Summertime.
The Happy Birthday ribbon is (I think) by Dovecraft.
 Coloured with Copics : Mouse - E31, E37, E50, E53, R20
Cupcake case - Y00, Y02, Y11, Y17
Candles - B00, B12, R05, R17, R27
Party Hat - YG03, YG06

I added Glamour Dust to some of the frosting on the cupcake after I took this photo (on Friday) but I can't get a decent photo of it today as it's not sunny enough and the photos are turning out very dark.
I'm sure you can imagine what it looks like anyway :)

Right.....the housework is calling
but so is the craft room.... wonder which I should answer.... ;)

Thank you for visiting today and for all the lovely comments:)

LOVE your card Sarah. This is darling. You should have your 5 year old color one and make a card. That would be fantastic.
Your coloring is gorgeous and I just LOVE the paper and embellishments. Perfect.
Thanks for playing in the Spots & Dots challenge this week at Sassy Cheryl's. So glad you could join us!
