House Mouse Christmas
Happy October, everyone. It is a perfect time for making smores and roasting hot dogs. I hope you are enjoying the cooler weather. It feels good today, but tonight is suppose to be cold.
I am excited to tell you about my mousie card. I made it for the House Mouse and Friends challenge 105. We were to make our card glittery. I put glitter on his hat, not sure if you can see it. This card was made from scraps. My friend, Sue, was here visiting from PA. We saw some cards on a SU demo's blog made from scraps so that is where this idea came from. Sue put the strips on the card for me while she was here and I am just getting around to finishing it. Notice that there are two strips of paper vertically and horizontally, my ribbon hides a lot of it. I had the scalloped square in with these scraps so I added it and the cute little mousie. Isn't this a great way to use up those scraps? I have bags and bags of scraps, probably enough to make a jillion cards. What do you think about my scrappy card?
I also entered this card in the Tip Top Tuesday challenge and my tip is about how to use up the scraps.
