4 cards using CCW's November Mini kit

Hello again!
I just remembered last night that I had to post these cards for the new mini challenge at
We've been so involved with the Christmas Countdown that the regular challenges have been a bit forgotten about.
We'd love you to take a moment and enter your projects.
Lou very kindly sent me this month's mini kit to have a play with and with the gorgeous mix of colours, I was able to make a male card as well as more feminine cards.

 This cute little mouse is from The Paper Shelter, the sentiment is a Daisy Bucket stamp and the brad is K&Co.
 The sentiment on this card is computer generated using 'LoosieScript' and the oval is cut with Nestabilities.

 I 'm sorry I can't remember the make of this stamp.  To save on space I removed all my stamps from their wooden blocks and I never made a note of the names!
It's coloured with Koh-i-Noor woodless pencils.
The button is by Fancy Pants and I tied twine through it. 
The brads were stuck on with pinflair glue gel after I removed the pins from the back of them.
I find that if I'm placing brads close together on card it can be hard to get them in a straight line.
Also the card crinkles when I pierce holes closely together so I find gluing them on gives a neater finish :)
The sentiment is computer generated using 'PhontPhreak's Handwriting'.
The flower stamp on this card is by Elzybells and the button is American Crafts.
Everything else is from the kit.
Thank you for reading both my posts today,
I'm a little behind in my commenting but I will be round to visit you soon :)
I  hope you have a lovely day
and if you pop back tomorrow, I'll have a link to Sue's project.
Take care,
Sarah xx
