Super Cute Tilda & Lots Of Mice - Totally Tilda & Paper Play DT Cards

Good morning peeps,
We have at last finished decorating & putting the finishing touches to Jodie's bedroom last night after a few hiccups with furniture not being delivered & then the wrong furniture arriving, and then having a faulty desk with a crack right across it, I so nearly had a good scream in the middle of the shop lol. The last time we went into the shop I had strict instructions from hubby to leave the talking to him as I was soooooo mad, it's very rare that I get really mad but when I do, everyone around me hides as I really do lol.

Today is new challenge day at 
& this fortnight our challenge is 

I actually made my card over 4 days as my shoulder wasn't playing nice & with all the upheaval of decorating time was limited so I kept getting drawn to my craft room when I was only "popping" downstairs to make a cuppa & eventually going back upstairs to help with coffee & a glittery face, hands & clothes so there was no point denying why making a coffee took me so long lol. I've been so spoilt by my lovely friends & have used a few of the gorgeous goodies I received for my birthday on this little card, thanks so much girlies xxx
