It's House Mouse Monday and It's Toad-ily Fun!

Today's House Mouse & Friends Challenge was to use something out of our junk drawer! Isn't it funny how there was no question of someone NOT having a junk drawer! Everyone does! Some are neater than others, I'm sure! Mine is not. But I did find, amidst the JUNK, this twine that I used on my card today. I got out my sewing machine added some stitched frames with black thread. The designer paper is by Basic Grey - some I have had for a long time.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the team did HERE. Lots of fun stuff in their junk drawers too!

I would like to also introduce you to a new Blogger! Her name is Jane Wetzel and she is on the Design Team for Our Daily Bread Designs with me. She is Anything But Plain Jane! Way to go, Jane!

Last week I posted a request to please pray for Ali Schmidlin, daughter of Laurie and Urs. Ali has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. The family was in Seattle this last week to consult with doctors about next steps and a biopsy. Please pray that the tumor is benign and that steps can be taken to return Ali to good health! She is 12 years old. The family was able to return home for a few weeks and that is great news! To read more about Ali, and for updates, CLICK HERE.

Thank you for stopping by today!
