I was initially stumped for this challenge: havent read a novel since I discovered stamping! So I resorted back to my childhood and remembered the fascinating stories Enid Blyton spun captivating my young imagination. Perhaps that is why I loved the adorable Penny Black stamp with a mouse hitching a ride on a snail buggy! Adorable!
Everything is dies, apart from the snail buggy and bee.

I love all the Christmas cards in the galleries lately but it is SO nice to have a summer scene to look at! I love the PB's too and your little mouse and snail fit beautifully into the scene you have created. So uplifting when the wind chill is -20 C. :-)

Ha - like your other card, when I saw the title of this I knew instantly what your book choice was. My mother was one of those who disapproved of Enid Blyton, for whatever reason, but we did have some of her books around and my DH, who was a late reader, says it was her books which really got him reading.
Love that image, too, it always makes me smile. This is just a delightful and enchanting card.
