There are mice in the house!

Well... not literally! Just found 2 more blogs over the weekend when I was home alone with weekly challenges and why not join in with everyone?!

Here's my creation for Penny Black Saturday Challenge and the challenge is NO CARDS ALLOWED. A friend from work loves to go to the movies every weekend and Costco has this great deal for 2 movie tickets for $14 but the envelope was just too plain! I didn't just want to insert the movie tickets on a card so I made my own movie ticket holder....I know the challenge asked for no cards allowed but really it's not...LOL! (I just forgot to take a picture of what it looks like inside.)


And here's my card for last week's challenge at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge. For their first challenge they want to see anything based on something "NEW", a great way to start a challenge with a brand new blog. I was a little late posting this but I thought I'd share what I created.


I can't find the right sentiment to put on this card but just looking at these two, it seems like they're celebrating their new found love!

Stamps: Critter Party by Penny Black and Wreath Love by House-Mouse Design

Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Real Red card stock from Stampin' Up and DSP by American Crafts

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Chocolate Chip gross grain ribbon, Oval and Circle Scallop punch, Liquid Applique and Crystal Effects
