Merry Mice

Hello All,

Yes I am actually making an appearance again!! Sorry about this, I keep hoping that I will feel better soon, but I am still coping with severe sickness ... so much fun I am sure it will be worth it all in March!!

This is a card I did last month sometime when I was practicing with my new Prisma pencils. I have used a fabby "sugar nellie stamp" I have had the stamp for a while but this was the first time I used it...... I stamped the grape part of the stamp round the edges to create a bit of a frame ... I am not sure if it looks right.

I would like to enter this into:

Anything goes - Real or Faux stitching
MAWT - Food and drink
Charizma Cards - Cutsey
Crafty Catz - anything goes
Paper Sundaes - Rectangle

Thanks for looking
Hugs Juls


  1. Wow!! that is gorgeous - I love it - hmm prisma pencils I've been thinking of these for a while not sure if I'd get away with them?? Any advice???

    Hope the sickness goes away soon hun xx

  2. Hi Juls, this is just so very cute. Love the gorgeous image and it's so perfectly coloured. Hope you feel better soon hun but yes it will definately be worth it.

  3. Juls, this is very pretty. Love the coloring on kraft and the way you've done the grapes around the edges. Sorry you still are feeling poorly, it will all be forgotten come March! Hope you have some better days soon.

  4. Hiya Juls
    Sorry to hear you're still not feeling great - it will definately be worth it as you say :-)
    I too suffered badly with sickness in my last pregnancy and eventually discovered Seabands - which I think did help a bit - have you tried them?
    Your card is stunning - gorgeous stamping and fabulous colouring.
    Take care

    Hope you feel better soon, you really are suffering but once March comes you will have forgotten all about it.
    Take care

  11. Sorry you feel so sick. I too was sick for months when pregnant, so I send you empathetic, sweet hugs! Hang in there! Your baby will be strong! Kath

  12. Hi Juls, sorry to hear you're still having such a bad time. I'm sure it'll definitely be worth it in the end though it would be nice if you could enjoy being pregnant. I think if I'd been sick even once I wouldn't have had 3 kids!

    Love your card, that image is so sweet.

    I'm a really bad blogger just now. Just lack of time with me. Been out 2 nights last week plus a crop on Saturday afternoon. Out 3 nights this week. Just back from a quiz at another WRI, have our own WRI quiz tomorrow and then to see photos and hear about our minister and his wife walking the West Highland Way as a fundraiser on Friday. Could do with a night at home to craft and blog!!

  31. Hello Julia

    Your visit prompted me over to check out how you were doing, sounds like it's been a nightmare for you.

    But it WILL all be worthwhile come March, which is not so very long really, although I am sure it seems like it when you are feeling so rotten.

    But clearly you can still make gorgeous cards, lets hope you soon feel up to a bit more crafting.
