Summer berries

One last card to post for today, these sweet House Mousies were calling to me to colour them up.  We have been enjoying berry season, first the strawberries (long gone now), then the raspberries, then the blue berries, and now finally the blackberries.  Hubby went and picked me a whole box of blackberries today so I made tarts and froze the rest.  I didn't use a recipe, kind of just winged it, and they came out edible.

This image is so gorgeous, I just couldn't' bear covering any of it up with fancy corners or ribbon, so went for a pretty simple layout, so that the artwork can stand out on its own.

I'm entering this card in two challenges - one  for Simon Says - Animal Antics challenge, and also for the House Mouse - Double Troublechallenge.


  1. Way too adorable. I agree, it needs nothing else.

  2. Sometimes the image alone is a piece of art, as in this case, love your colouring and super image choice, thank you for joining us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge
