House Mouse Monday Challenge #120

     Happy to see you!  Just wanted to get my entry for the House Mouse Monday challenge loaded, before I get lost this weekend.  The challenge is  "Circles, Polka Dots and All Around Fun".  Isn't that just too cute for a title?


     This little Mousy stamp, has a sweet little critter sleeping on a puff ball.  It has the # 104 on it.  I used one of the newer Spellbinder dies and popped it up off a piece of Cosmo Cricket paper, which is layered on ivory and beige card stock.  An MS corner punch was used on the corners of the dp to add the feeling of more circles.  My sentiment is from Unity.  It is an Itty Bitty co-branded with Webster Pages.  I added red pearls, ribbon, and some Diamond Stickles to the puff.  Sponging was done with SU! Poppy Parade, and Crumb Cake inks.

I would also like to enter this card over at Art Impressions for their Challenge #65  Seeing Spots.

As an update:

     First let me thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes.  If anyone would have said "you will have your husband back in less than a week", I would have told them they are nuts.  If you ever need surgery, and they suggest using robotics, please do not hesitate!  He was cleared by the Dr. to resume his normal activity around the house, stitches came out, and he will return to work in 14 days.  The doc looked me straight in the eye, and told me not to baby him.  Eek!  He is going stir crazy, and can not wait to get back to business. He took a total of 1 pain pill since he came home Friday.  The machine they used is called DiVinci.  There is a video on You Tube of it peeling a grape.  Amazing stuff!  He did not need that extra foot of colon, anyway!  LOL!
