Love These Mousies!


The new challenge was posted for House Mouse Monday Challenge and  the topic is Warm Fuzzies.  I bought this new House Mouse stamp on my last trip to Ephrata along with a cute saying that I will use at a later date. So, I started thinking fuzzy.  I use to have a pair of socks that had an angora band.  Hence I colored the shared sock like them, and added some white Fun Flock for the fuzzy part.  I found the perfect green velvet ribbon and a round fuzzy, sticky dot to finish off my snow flake.  Here is a close up to show the texture.

Over at Art Impressions, the challenge is to use red, green and metallic.  I think I covered that as well, with the silver backing snowflake. I have also used Dew Drops, Stickles, and my Copic markers to create this card.

These have been my two favorite challenges lately, and I am so glad I was able to get them done! 

So far, the week has not started out on a good note.  Hubby came down with a virus yesterday afternoon, right as were were being taken out to dinner by our best friends as a birthday celebration.  He got as far as ordering his food and then when it came, begged them to box it and take it away.  We rushed through our food, did not order dessert and got him home.  He is still laying around today, and the pup is so confused, because daddy just does not do this!

I am staying in a different part of the house to try and avoid catching it.  Have a great day.  Hee Hee!
