Happy Anniversary Mouse

Dad wanted me to make an anniversary card for him to give to Mum. His only request was that it includes a mouse since that's what he calls her.
Since I don't own any of those housemouse stamps (honestly not a huge fan... they're cute but just not me. I know shoot me now!) I did a search on SCS for mouse punch art and found this little cutie, so I copied it, making a few changes to adapt to the punches I own.
I also took the opportunity to test out some new Autumn Winter mini catalogue products. It starts this Thursday! I used Rich Razzleberry Ink, Cottage Wall DSP and Teeny Tiny Sentiments (clear mount!!). 
It took a bit of spywork to get this card to Dad since he's in Orange. Mum comes over every Wednesday but Dad's usually at work. So I had to sneak out to Mum's car (using the excuse of checking out the problem with her stereo) and hide it in the boot in that little underfloor storage area that dad keeps the tarp and ropes etc in. I couldn't resist the opportunity to send a coded text message after it was hidden lol
