Hello Everyone!! Hope you are having warmer weather then we are here. Had temperatures in the 80's and this morning it's on 60 something out. Were not suppose to get warm again until the end of this week. Which will be nice because my daughter has a parade on Saturday for Marching Band. Every year they honor the veterans in parades or cemeteries. The one year I couldn't go because my Grandmother passed the December before and the band was performing where she was and very close to her stone. It is very nice that they do this. So I hope you all have a Wonderful Memorial Day!! 

This week our challenge is a fun one. Seeing all the shapes of cards that people come up with is amazing. I always want to know how they made them but I don't have time to do them all. I can honestly say that I had creative block on this one. I know I have made many but just couldn't think this week. My image from Dragonsmoore, Spyder's Other Corner did help me decide my shape. I used the image "Not Mushroom for a Mouse House -- # 3877." This is the way it is listed in their store. I love little animals so this was the perfect image for me. Also, Dragonsmoore, Spyders Other Corner has some of the cutest images that you will see. They are also offering this generous prize to this week's lucky winner.

5 Digital Stamps

Now that you know the image I used I will tell you that the shape I used is a hexagon. I actually made it a little easy on me. I printed the image inside the hexagon. Easier for me. Here is my card.

I made the card a little brighter when I was putting it on the computer. For some reason it kept turning out real light. could be when I took the picture. I usually take them at a certain time of the day but I had things to do so I did it early. I knew I had this image so when I put in another order from Dress It Up I seen this and had to get them. They are part of their new collection. Well here is the items I used to made this adorable card.

Cardstock -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- K & Company
Mice -- Dress It Up
Butterflies -- K & Company
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

Not that many items but I think it did the job for this card. Well it's time for me to go. I have laundry to do before husband and daughter go back to work and school. It's a never ending job. I don't mind doing it if I didn't have to fold it. I fold it and my daughter just puts the pile on the floor in from of her dresser. Well I hope you have a great day and I will see you next Sunday. Happy Memorial Day Weekend!!
