White Tea and an announcement!



So another couple of challenges...and a House Mouse image to boot! I have to thank Julie, Scrapbook Store at your Door is where I buy my House Mouse stamps and everytime I look she has more cute ones! I colored this one over the weekend, and decided to follow CPS Card Sketches 125 for the layout. Then I saw Carolyn's House Mouse challenge 47 to use all white and thought...why not! It is big for me to do one challenge, let alone two in one!




Doing something in all white is tough! I did not realize it until I was done, but I picked up scraps of Shimmery White to use and I think it is very pretty! I used two different cuttlebug folders for texture, and mounted the image on a nestabilities cutout that I pierced in the scallops. A ribbon, button and done! The image is colored with my SU! markers and aqua painter. What a pretty get well card this would make!

Speaking of Julie, I am on the Design Team for her new Recipe Challenge! I am so excited!! I will be sharing weekly Recipe Card challenges highlighting products from Julie's store! She is still looking for some DT members, so stop by the blog if you are interested!

So Tuesday it is! As always...thanks for stopping by!! I appreciate the looks and comments! My little hobby keeps me sane!
