Precious Moments!

They're celebrating "Holidays"
over at
House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge!

Birthdays come too often for those of us
who have seen more than a few!
But for the little ones,
it's always a thrill to celebrate yet another one!
My grandson and granddaughter love these little mice
from House Mouse,
so I try to incorporate them whenever possible,
no matter the occasion!
(BTW, we'll be eating cake, not cheese!)
In this case, it's going to be Harper's big 2nd in October!!
(I know, adorable, huh?!)

If you look closely, you can see that this is just a simple step card
turned on its' side.
The adorable papers and brad embellishment are "Baby Mine", Carte Bella
and can be found at
The Scrapbooking Queen's website,
Royal Castle Shoppe HERE!
They also carry the little
Royal Jewels (I used red on this card!)
in so many colors!

And don't forget to join the fun at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge!
on Monday, June 8th!
Have a great day!

Cup of Hugs!

For House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge,
I've made a card for a dear acquaintance who could really use
a big pick-me-up right about now and is a huge coffee drinker!

I used House Mouse's image, "A Warm Cup"'
and in keeping with the "In the Kitchen" theme,
papers that remind me of vintage kitchen
wallpaper/curtains and a red table cloth.
The little coloring needed was with Copics.
Everyone have a really "Mice" day!
P.S. PLEASE, Let me know you were here by leaving a short comment!
I love hearing from you!

Hey There, Beach Baby!

Having just returned from Florida,
I couldn't resist using this hilarious image from
It's one of my favorite rubber stamps from
Art Impressions
It comes complete with both "halves" of this bathing beauty,
along with the Action Wobble Spring you need to make her either madly waving her arm in the air,
or (as some may have it) wiggle her tushie on the backside of the card front!
Either way, it's bound to get a laugh!
The girls back in Cape Canaveral will get a kick out of this!
So, here's to all the gals and all the laughs we had back at the beach!
Oh, how I miss it already.
Papers: Bella Blvd,
Lucky Starz and Molly Collections
Markers: Copic
All of the great supplies used can be found at the links above!
Hope you're enjoying your summer!
While you're at it, join us at the weekly

This week's challenge here at The Royal Castle is to
"Make it a 6 x 6 Square"!
Stampendous Stamp used- "Circus"
Graphic 45 Papers
from the "Le Cirque"
More of their great papers are available here at

Todays tip:  Always lay out your layered cards before gluing anything down permanently!
It's easier to change things around rather than rip them up later!
 (Trust me on this one!)
Have a great week!
