Happy Friday! I am off to the city for the weekend & it is going to be a busy trip! Supper with my family tonight (Mom, my kids & grandgirls). Tomorrow we will be watching Emily (5 yrs.) playing hockey in the morning & then a get together with friends we haven't seen in ages in the evening. Then, Jessica (9yrs.) plays hockey on Sunday afternoon. In between times we plan to get some Xmas shopping done. I will need to relax when I get home...just like this cute little House Mouse! Hubby will be in the city for the next 2 weeks working (he retired 4 yrs. ago but is covering for someone having surgery) so, I will have lots of time to myself to do as I please! Stay in my jammies & craft all day is high on the list of priorities!
Anyway, on to my card! I stamped my House Mouse....Autumn Cruise with Versafine ink, vintage sepia & colored it with my prismacolor pencils; I've used Spellbinder ovals & scalloped ovals; CS is Bazzill; DP is Fancy Pants; sentiment is Hero Arts; brads are Recollections & the ribbon is from my stash. Oh, & the "bling" in the corners is Stickles... orange & lime green (the green looks sort of washed out in the picture) My photography skills leave much to be desired!!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
1. House Mouse.....color combo (I used orange & lime green)
2. Forever Friends.....anything goes
3. DYSU.....use some brads
4. Lady Anne Challenges.....anything goes
5. My Mum's Craft Shop.....bright & bold

Thanks for stopping by! Have an awesome weekend!
