A Mouse in the House......

No reason to scream though! LOL! Not that I wouldn't if I really saw one .....! LOL! Anyway I have a question for you, did you get all your Christmas cards made that you WANTED to make?! I mean for your friends and the other special people in your life?! I'll have to raise my hand right along with you! I was bad..very bad! I guess with the holidays, being sick for a week, going home to Wisconsin for a week AND a move into a new house all in like a 3 week period can really put you behind! So, today being ANOTHER snow day here in Ohio I decided, had time to think even, I should make a card for all my special friends! The ones who I didn't make one for at Christmas! You don't really need a special occasion to tell them how special they are after all right?!

Okay, so here's my first card!



I used the cutest stamp set, A Cup of Stuff, I got a while back from "Pink Poison" (now known as "The Greeting Farm") for the mice and the word "Friend" came from another set "Vintage Birds" I love birds so this set will be a favorite now that I can stamp more! YEAH! The paper was all random stuff that I pulled out of boxes while I was off and decided to make good use of! I actually, believe it or not, attempted water coloring on the mice! What do you think?! I had been stalking a few blogs whose owners ROCK in the coloring department! My goodness, when I grow up (if ever!) I want to color like them! I also got to use a couple of punches I don't get to use often, one is new actually! I used the treading water punch from Fiskars and my new Martha Stewart leaf punch! I had wanted one for a while so I broke down and got it. I, for some reason, have to have leaves with my flowers! No problem now! YEAH!!!

Well, I hope you like my card...and so does the recipient!

Until next time....
