My veteran is off tomorrow. Just going to do some things around the house. Thanks for stopping by.

First, I cut a piece of white cardstock a little larger than the front of the card I intend to mount it on. I then took a piece of text weight (copy paper) paper and punched a circle near the bottom in the center. I placed the top of the circle cutout over the cardstock about 1/2 inch from the top. This will leave a space at the bottom of the cardstock uncovered.
Many of the members of the design team will have a prize to offer on their own blogs also.
It's an exciting time at the House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog. We recently added 5 new members. More samples each challenge and more inspiration!
So, we invite you to visit the blog site and get the details and as an incentive, take a peek at the
prize being offered to the winner of the blog hop!!!
Eleven House Mouse Stamps! Along with all the other wonderful papers and embellishments. Look at all those charms!!! And don't forget, the design team members are also going to be offering some awesome blog candy on their blogs.
So, get those House Mouse stamps out and join the fun!!
Hope to see you there, it's my first card as design team member, and I am so excited.

I color coordinated again in purples!

I used a Penny Black image and the papers are by My Minds Eye, Home Stack. The black lace strip is a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers are Prima, the pearls are Kaiser and the sentiment is Rubbernecker.
They asked that you pick out a Dance dress for the Dance Party this week and I found this lovely number. In Silver and white, I'm just going to Disco the night away!!

The cardstock is Cloud 9. The flowers are cut and layers from the same paper. Added ribbon and the bird image.
On a sad note, this afternoon, a blue heron entered our yard and devoured all 17 fish in the pond.
Our original fish from when we set up the pond had grown quite large and we had three generations of fish all born in the pond over the past several years. Just depressing.
Have a great rest of the day. Thanks for stopping by. Until later............
