Wish Big:

Good morning sweet Friday, and of a long weekend - it just doesn't get any better than this!  The best way to spend Mondays is at home or on vacation.

I pulled out my Prismacolors again, sharpened many of my new ones, and got busy with this cutie stamp I bought last weekend:  Ray of Sunshine (with Mudpie and Muzzy).  I am very proud of myself for trying this stamp as it has so many details, it's normally something I would shy away from, but have been trying to push myself out of my comfort zone.
Card Ingredients:  House Mouse stamp;  CraftSmart Black ink;  K&Co and Recollections papers;  Recollections cardstock;  Prismacolors (Sunflowers - 942, 1012, 1002, 943. Leaves - 913, 909. Mice - 1082, 941, 928, 927. Shading - 1024);  We R Memory Keepers bakers twine;  Doodlebug button;  Recollections gems.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this mousie card for the following challenges:  House-Mouse Challenge - make wishes come true;  Fab 'n' Funky - try something new (Prismacolors and detailed stamp);  Truly Scrumptious - creatures great and small;  Cupcake Crafts - entwined;  ICSketches - sketch #151:


And I musn't forget to tell you about StampFairy's Clementine Spring, today's new release:

 
Have a wonderful weekend - I will painting walls - so much fun ;)
