House Mouse Challenge #28



I LOVE the House Mouse Challenges - check out this amazing blog. There are so many fantastic cards made by talented papercrafters you are sure to be inspired and entertained by the little critters you'll see there. My House Mouse image was given to me by my friend Susan - I do not own this stamp.... yet : )
I made this card for my Dear ol' Dad. I think he will get such a kick out of this image. The pattern paper I used is by Sweeetwater - the solid cardstock by WorldWin. I ran the solid blue cs through my Big Shot using my "Spots & Dots" Cuttlebug embossing folder. I cut the star using the Basic George cartridge on my Cricut machine and I stamped the large yellow brad with a part of a sentiment stamp I have from The Angel Company.

Thank you for looking : ) and Thank You, House Mousers, for another fun challenge

What a great card for your Dad. It is just perfectly masculine. I love the angle that you cut for the image as well as the outline cutting around the top. You are going to "need" that stamp in your collection. Thanks for sharing. Martha Kay
