Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Hello everyone, hope you're keeping safe and well where ever you are in the world! Its still rather cold here in the UK and the road outside my house has turned into an ice rink - its so dangerous! I walked (rather gingerly) to and from work today and will probably do the same tomorrow.

Today is a Wednesday, so this evening I had a Brownie meeting...and tonight we had a PJ party! Three of the older Brownies organised and ran the evening - we all had to dress in our PJs, there were games and milk and cookies! Wednesday also means a new sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday..woo hoo! Here is my card based on this week's sketch:

Isn't it a lovely layout? My porportions are slightly out, but you get the idea! Pop over to the SSW blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

I'm also entering this card in this month's challenge over at Penny Black at Allsorts where the theme is "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". My interpretation of the theme includes my favourite colour purple and one of my favourite embellishments - buttons! The Penny Black image also contains a favoured item of mine - teacups....I've got quite a nice little collection going now. There is something very elegant about drinking a hot drink from a teacup, it gives me great pleasure!

Thanks for popping by today, stay safe!

Wedgie we're kindred spirits! I collect teacups too - I love all the beautiful dainty ones and agree it feels special to drink from a teacup. This is an adorable image and very cute card. I also love buttons as embellishments and yours here are the perfect finishing touch. Thanks for joining us again at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. We really appreciate your support.
All the best,

Hi Wedgie - what an adorable card and I just love those PB little mice!! Awwwh, reading your post brings back memories of the days my girls were in brownies and the sleep overs - lucky you only 3 girls - I was never that lucky always had more than a handful at one time!! Have a great week and be careful with the ice!!
