"B" is for Buzz cut!

Hello crafty friends! and happy Saturday!



Here is a card I made for my Dad when he was in the hospital last month : )  The card actually went postal the day he was discharged but I know he got a good laugh out of it even though he was home when he received it : )

My sister, Susan, sent me this adorable House Mouse Image in some Happy Mail she sent last month so I don't know the name of this particular one.  I love House Mouse art and have several of their stamps but I hadn't seen this one before.  I knew my Dad would get a real kick out of it so I colored it up and added my own computer generated sentiment.  You can't see it here but the entire mirror is coated with Wink of Stella for a real "mirror like" look.



The crafty gals at the Just Add Ink blog are hosting a "Just add a B" challenge and so I will add my forlorned little buzz cut mouse to that fun challenge.  I hope you'll considering joining the fun too!



I will also enter the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes" These are always great challenges and they come with a prize!! Hope you'll join the fun there too.

I want to thank all of you who sent me encouraging and  get well wishes for my Dad.  I really appreciate your concern : ) He is doing well!

Well I am off to get inky!  Our weather is icky - cold and rainy so what a better way to spend a holiday weekend than in the craft room! I hope you get a chance to do something crafty today : )

Thank you so much! for stopping by.

OMG, Patti, you are too clever with that awesome sentiment...goes perfect with the little mouse looking behind him in the mirror...I LOVE it!! I bet he did get a big kick out of that. So glad to hear your dad is home and doing better, it relieves the worry, doesn't it?
We have sunshine, so I am thinking yard work...which isn't bad cause I have flowers that need to get planted and that just makes the yard look beautiful. There is always later tonight to play (if I am not too tired!) Have a Happy holiday weekend! Heart Hugs, Colleen

Patti, Oh how funny. I love it.. the sentiment works. You very much do need to keep your eyes on those nurses.. Great card.. what a hoot. Dad did love it.

Great card Patti. Love the new elements of where you put cardstock, color and now it all seems like a "fresh new look" at more than the mouse but how and were we place items. The circle inked in different places, the second cardstock with just a little blue.... all a fresh new look to me anyway. Good luck with your entries.

Wonderful news to hear your Dad is on the mend, and I know that your card was another boost to his recovery! Those mice are adorable (I can't believe I just wrote that...I have mouse terror!) and the sentiment, too funny! Once again, a delight that has me smiling!
