Adorable Mouse

Another weekend has flown by and it's another week closer to our son's wedding. They are getting more involved in all the nitty gritty of weddings and today my DIL was asking about what to do about having our hair done. The wedding is on a Sunday afternoon and not too many hairdressers open up, my son has a friend who may come and do it for us or if all us "girls" get together one of the salons might just open for say 4 adults and two children. No harm in asking!
I overslept this morning and had to do a mad dash to get to church on time. I am in the choir there and that means I need to be about 30 mins early to get robed and have a run through the song we are singing in the service.
We came home and I got ready to go with a friend to Shirley's house for cardmaking and found out through one of our son's that our youngest who we were supposed to be picking up from the airport is now not going to be home till tomorrow. I don't know what happened as he told us yesterday to pick him up today. I suppose we will find out tomorrow.
A few of the family dropped in today and our oldest son, wife and 2 of the grandchildren ended up staying for tea. Their oldest girl was over at someone's house to play and they were picking her up around 7 p.m. so we ordered pizza and they left straight from here.
Well I hope you have all had or are still having a lovely weekend wherever you are and that the weather is being kind to you. It was a beautiful day here.
Anyway here is the card I made.
I've used Black cardstock for the base and then a layer of bright pink. I cut a piece of white card and put through the Swiss Dots embossing folder in my cuttlebug. The digi image from When the Scrap Hits the Fan (a freebie) was printed onto white card and cut with a Nestie Die then coloured with Copics. I also used the Nestie to cut our a red piece to use as a matte. The sentiment is from SU set "Love & Care" inked in SU Real Red, cut out with an oval punch and then mounted onto a piece of red and cut out with a scalloped punch. I finished it off with a white ribbon with red hearts printed on it (from stash). I also did the inside very simply with a piece of white cardstock and used this heart stamp from SU "I(heart)Hearts" also inked in Real Red
