Hey All! Two weeks have passed already and it is time for a new House Mouse Monday Challenge. Sorry I'm late posting this, but as most of you know, my life is in "crazy mode" right now. I actually didn't even think about what day it was and just realized that I missed posting it yesterday. Sorry about that!
This week's challenge is by my teamie Lisa. It is a recipe challenge. You are to use your House Mouse image with 1 ribbon, 2 different papers, and 3 flowers. Well, you know me, I am always challenged when it comes to using two different papers on the same card. Add to that, that I rarely ever use flowers on my card, and well I was driven nuts. Here is what I came up with:
I did a technique on this one that I love. If you look at the image, you'll see that part of the image is outside the die cut, but still intact. This is simple to do. . .you simply use scissors to cut out the part of the stamped image that doesn't fit inside the die cut area. You then slide the die over the image and then pull the scissor cut area outside and over the die. When you run it through your die cut machine, your image is still intact and looks like it springs off the die cut. I colored my image with colored pencils and oms. The flowers are Prima, but they were white. I colored them with a marker, because I didn't have any purple flowers. Popped the image up with dimentionals and done. This is a Gruffies image.
There is also some exciting news over at House Mouse Monday Challenge Blog!!! We are looking for new members of our DT!!! So if you are interested get over and apply!
Jay update. . . Jay is still in the hospital. He has some complications with an infection at the surgical site. So we are dealing with that and not sure when he gets to come home. On top of that, Gunther was injured at the groomers on Sunday and required medical attention. It involved one of his claws and was very painful for him. He is now running around with a bandaged paw and daddy is having to make sure he doesn't chew it off. So far so good. 2 more days till we can take it off.
So, that is what is going on. A BIG THANK YOU to those of you that were so sweet to send Jay cards! It was so thoughtful and they have brightened his days in the hospital. He thanks you very much and can't believe how people that don't know him sends him cards.
Hope you all have a great week. Hopefully I'll have something to post later this week! Don't forget the Pic of the Week below!
