Oh Happy Days :)

Seeing these lovely mice having such a deep and relaxed nap makes me think of those Happy Days.. whaen we were carefree, no thoughts to disturb our profound sleep.. and if someone dared to disturb that sleep!!! ..... :) lol
After some weeks I managed to do a DT card for the Cupcake Craft Challenge blog. This week's Chalenge is Blog Background inspired.
This is Lauren's theme for this week:

"This weeks challenge I would like you to be inspired by the background of this blog. Reminds me of chocolate cupcakes mmmmmm.... But you could use the colours, anything."... and so be it!
I went for the main blog background colours: Brown and pink. I had this image coloured which I wanted to use a few weeks ago, but was too large for the layout I had in mind. But for this card it worked a beauty :)

I'll be short, because it is very late, and I need some sleep before the dawn of day! :) I hope to manage to do at least another card before the new year knocks on my door... but I wish you the very Best. I hope you like this card, and I'll be happy with your comments. I will also remind you that those who don't have a blog or a Blogger account, can leave me a comment in my Chat box here in my blog. It only reqiures an e-mail address (which will not be displayed publicly). Take care of yourselves.. and your loved ones.xx Live in God's love, and give your children a hug from me :) They are God's angels in today's troubled world. xx
