Web surfing

I had so much fun doing the challenges in the past few weeks, I decided to try to find some more. Thinking outside the box is a very good thing, especially for me. I tend to get stuck in ruts. I found this great website called the Daily Dare - It posts lots of challenges every day, and I found a few that were a nice combo of inside and outside the box :)

So the paper here is all SU. The brown ribbon, I bought at Walmart. The stamp is a House Mouse stamp - and I love it, I think it's so cute! The sentiment is from My Pink Stamper. The mat the stamp is on is from Once Upon a Princess. I manipulated the shape on my Gypsy to make it the right size. I used my Prismacolor Pencils for the first time ever on this card - so this was WAY outside my box. I am pleased with the overall look of the card, and it wasn't too hard to do.

So the challenges I am entering this into are all firsts for me. I am excited to be doing new challneges!

a)Paper playtime - Their challenge this week is "Flower Power" and my cute little mouse is on a Lilac.

b) House Mouse Challenges - their challnge this week was the letter B. Anything goes, as long as you can somehow tie it in to "B". I figured my lilac were "Blossoms" - that counts, right?

c) The Pink Elephant - Their challenge this week, was a color challenge. Brown. The base of the card is SU Chocolate Chip and there is a brown ribbon.

Hope you like my cute little card. I hope to make one more card tomorrow, but am leaving on wednesday for a few days at the cottage with the kids. Hopefully the weather will be good.

A la prochaine...

Hi Michelle!

This is such a sweet card! I think that little mouse is so cute. :)

If you are interested...I would be willing to help you get some Cricut Lite carts. I shop for a couple international girls already. I am more then happy to purchase what you want and ship it to you. You can reimburse me through Paypal. I don't make any money, you just reimburse me cost of the items,the cost of shipping, and the 5.5% fee that Paypal charges me for the money transfer. It is o.k. if you are not interested...I just thought I would offer. :)
