The Wee Church Mouse

Rain rain go away, come back another day.

Morning bloggers, isn't the weather a bit of a wash out at the moment - great for ducks, as they say!

The challenge this week over at Out of a Hat Creations is "Arches".

Initially I was stumped but when I came across my La Blanche mouse stamp, I thought I could make him into a church mouse ...

Church door is an image from The Graphics Fairy, which I've highlighted with gold embossing powder.  Background is Tim Holtz Brick Wall embossing folder and I've added some mica flakes which I thought looked liked autumn leaves.

Is anyone else having problems with the new blogger.  When I open up the dashboard it often doesn't show the list of blogs I'm following and I have to refresh it 3 or 4 times before they appear and I know for certain I'm not getting feeds from at least 2 blogs.

Anyway, moan over, hope the sun manages to peep through for you today.
Thanks for visiting

Suze xx

Love the church door and wee mouse! I can almost hear Robbie Burns! Yes, Blogger is a pain in the **** just now, I often need ages for pages to load, or get told that blogs have disappeared. It can only get better - or....? Hugs, Valerie

There is still a month before the new blog becomes the only alternative. I can't remember what I clicked on to get back to the old style but it was just a symbol somewhere on the top right.

I have decided that I had better stick with the new one and get used to it even though I don't like it at all.

Love Chrissie xx
