Well i didn't need asking twice i was thrilled and honoured to be asked.

Our project was to all use the same stamped image and backing papers so as to see all the different styles that could be made and when i saw which stamp we were to use i was jumping for joy, as i'm sure you all know how much i love House Mouse
