House Mouse Monday !

I hope you all had a good weekend! We did! My husband just finished a two-week run of "Rough Crossing" at the Community Theatre. What a funny play. I sure enjoyed it - even after seeing it about 6 times! (I work out there most shows)~

Today is House Mouse Monday, and over at the Blog we have a Gatefold Card challenge for you! There is a prize for one lucky participant, so be sure to check out this post!

I made a birthday card for my gatefold:

I colored my image with Copic markers and added some matching brads. I love my new EK Success wavy border punch. It pierces as you punch! A little trim, a clip, some glitter on the candle, and my mousie is ready for CHEESE! My card is 4.25 inches square.

Thanks for stopping by -- come back a little later this afternoon for a Blog Candy post!
