Yellow and Blue, House Mouse and Midnight Madness

Wow, looks like I am on a Yellow and Blue kick this week. This is the third card in a week that I have used these colors. Funny thing is, they are not colors that I normally use. I made this card for the House Mouse and Friends Challenge this week. They are having a birthday celebration blog hop. The theme was birthday and flowers. Well, laying in a hammock with the fabulous weather we have been having this week, seems like a perfect way to spend a relaxing birthday.
If you want to see some cute mousie cards stop by House Mouse and Friends Blog Hop .

This card was made for Priscilla's Midnight Madness sketch challenge this week. This image is one of Priscilla's. I purchased it months ago and and it just seemed to go perfect with the dp.

I promise that my next card will not be yellow and blue, I do believe I am done with those colors for a while.

Have a wonderful day. I am happy you stopped in to take a look at my cards. "Come back soon, now, ya hear?"

Challenges: Midnight Madness - Sketch
