Bright Happy Flowers

I had hoped to have a House Mouse card or maybe a Christmas card or even both to share with you today, but I don't.  You'll just have to settle for some bright, happy flowers.
There! Is that cheery?
I had a play date with my friends last night.  We met at a restaurant and I brought some things to work on. I only got as far as getting my House Mice colored. While I was coloring them I kept laughing and hoping they'd turn out decent.  See, about this time a year ago we were meeting in the same restaurant for the same reason and one lady and I sat around and studiously colored in DeNami Easter chicks.

They looked really good in the awkward restaurant light but when we got home we shrieked with how hideous our chicks looked.  They were a sweet yellow with orange beaks at the restaurant, but at home they were a sickening orange and brown.  All the colors we used were terribly off.  It didn't help that we used some random pile of unbranded markers either.

You'll just have to stay tuned at how the House Mice came out.

The Fine Print: Flower stamp by Stampin' Up, greeting by A Muse Artstamps, punched used by EK Success and Stampin' Up, papers and ribbon from my stash.

Love this sweet floral card.
I can just imagine the colours from the dim lit restaurant.
Bad enough when you get colours wrong in false light in your own home.
Have a great day
