New Beginnings

Hello and welcome to my blog. I hope you are having a good day. I want to share with you a card I made for several challenges. I always enjoy using my House Mouse stamps. Isn't this little fella cute? He looks like a happy camper! At House Mouse and Friends and Basic Grey the challenge is New Beginnings. What better way to begin a new year by starting to eat healthy. This little mouse looks like he has eaten a healthy portion of grapes. I love grapes too! At Simon Says Stamp and Show the challenge is Something You are Known For. In crafting I am known for using a lot of embellishments and you can see I have used them again on this card! No card seems complete to me without them. Behind the mouse I used a die to cut from Basic Grey paper Euphoria/Trance. The TIP I am sharing for Top Tip Tuesday is this -- To show light hitting an object, add glitter like I did on the grapes. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed my creation. Have a good one!
