Autumn and 2 Challenges


I am pleased that I was able to do another House-Mouse challenge this week. We were supposed to do a card based on how the provided photo inspired us. I decided to do this little image called "Monica's Gift" instead of a cupcake, because I still think it has to do with offering something to the recipient. I also posted this to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge so I'm doing a rare thing and actually participating in two challenges at once. I like it!, and I like that I've had some time to do it. I used my Just-Rite Autumn Blessings oval border and placed my little mouse in the middle. The DP's are from a pack I purchased last Fall at Michael's, and the buttons are punched with my Martha Stewart Button Punch. I'm trying to do challenges with a recipient in mind so this one will join my batch of Thanksgiving cards no doubt. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you're having a wonderful week and happy stamping!

Kirby, what a fun, bright card. Love the buttons along the side and the little mouse with the "cheesey" gift is so cute. Pretty papers too. Thanks for joining the fun at House Mouse and Friends this challenge. Nicely done.
