Have a MICE day!

Are you having a MICE day? I hope so. I was home alone yesterday and friends were asking what will I do this weekend and I tell them that I'll be celebrating World Card Making Day ... they just had this puzzled look on their face, so I had to explain it to them...LOL!


Tomorrow will be another House Mouse Monday Challenge and I thought I would do this weeks challenge first and this weeks challenge is to make TAGS. Nicole had posted these Knock, Knock Joke Book and I thought this would be perfect for my daughter Toni. She loves to read jokes to her friends and I thought this would be a nice to put on her lunch box to share it with her friends.
I got the mouse jokes from this website. I printed the jokes on a 8 1/2" by 11" white card stock, punched different size of circle punch to create a cheese background just like what Monica's holding. I hand wrote the sentiment and I think Toni will get a kick out of this one.

Here's the sample of one of the jokes.

Stamps: Monica's Gift by House-Mouse Design

Paper: So Saffron, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock from Stampin' Up

Ink: Jet Black Staz-on Ink and SU re-inkers

Accessories: 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 circle punch, Certain Celery gross grain ribbon and corner rounder punch
