Happy House-Mouse Friday!

Hello friends & followers!  Happy Friday!  Today I have two cards for your viewing pleasure.  The first is in celebration of House-Mouse Designs birthday, this company that sells the cutest mouse, bunny, bear and other assorted creature images.  My friend Lee introduced me to them and I just ADORE them!  So I made this card using their sweet 'Make a Wish' image and Sketch 350 by Roxie over at Splitcoaststampers to make this card for House-Mouse's birthday celebration challenge:
See?  Are the mousies sweet?  (Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  The mousies are colored with Copic markers, I added some red pearls to the corners and some glitter to the cupcake's frosting for a little extra sparkle to match the pre-glittered papers from the 'Birthday Extravaganza' stack from Hobby Lobby.  This card also fulfills the following additional challenges as well:
My second card was created using Sweet N' Sassy Stamps' Sweet Stop Sketch 125 and the recipe from Deb Felt's September Release Challenge at Stamp TV: to use at least 4 colors (light blue, deep red, rosey pink, white), 3 embellishments (rhinestones, ribbon, buttons), two punches or die cuts (the big circle by Marvy-Uchida and the scalloped-edge punch) and 1 image (from Gina K. Designs' 'Warm & Cozy Christmas' set) to make one holiday card (holiday card count = 38, behind where I hope to be this time of year, but not abysmal).

(Again, please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I just love these colors together!  The papers are from one of DCWV's mat stacks, easy coordination!  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:


Embellishment


Button(s)

Stamped image

Digi image

Ribbon

3 papers or layers

Flower(s)


Sentiment

Die cuts


(I went straight across the top row, with embellishments, buttons, and a stamped image).


That is probably all of the cards I have for you today sadly, but I hope to do LOTS of stamping and crafting this weekend so I hope you will stop by again!  Thanks for taking the time to view my creations and read my ramblings.  Have a wonderful Friday!
