Brother in law birthday card

My stamp collection consists mainly of people but recently I have been seen a lot of animal ones. Animals have been perfect when doing my boy/men cards and as many of you know I have had my fair share of them lately.

I would like to introduce you to this ever so cute lil mouse.His name is Cheddar and he is made by Sugar Nellie from Funky kits.What can I say but I just love him to bits hee hee. Being a cat lover myself I thought the big cats book was just hilarious.

Once again Truly Scrumptious has another fab sketch this week which Cheddar seemed to fit perfectly into. The sketch was great fun to work with and certainly one I would consider again.I cut Cheddar out as I wanted to highlight his curly tail and I am really pleased with the result.

I would love to hear what you think as I am always unsure of my cards for men.
