Hello and happy mornin' to ya! The card I'm sharing today meets the requirements for a couple of challenges that I'm enjoying participating in. First, if you check out House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, you will see that the challenge there is to make a long card. This isn't a size I make very often, but I think I like it, and I may tackle this size more in the future. It's kind of nice for a change, and it allows plenty of room for mulitple images to be added to a card. Me likey! I don't have all that many House Mouse stamps yet, but I'm definitely adding to my collection. These little guys are so much fun to color, and they are just adorable. As I was headed downstairs in search of better lighting to take a picture of this card, DH stopped me to take a look, and he says "Oh, honey! You did a great job! Those little possums are really cute!!"!! Well, there you have it! I guess the whole upside down thing had him thinking possums. He makes me laugh, and that's why I keep him!! Gotta love a man who likes those cute possums.
While deciding on a layout and paper for the HM challenge, I remembered this wonderful Daisy D paper that I picked up for Valentine's day, and It had several of the colors in it for the CC205 challenge on splitcoaststamers. It's hard to see, but there is Kiwi Kiss in that background somewhere. I may have covered most of it up with that adorable little Valentine mouse. I'm finding that these challenges really do help keep the creative mojo going, and that is such a good thing! Why haven't I done this sooner?? I don't know, but better late than never, right? Thanks for stopping by, and have a beautiful day!!
