A Cheesy Birthday Card

Hello Peeps! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and that you all managed to get in a little relaxing crafting time!  I stole a little time to play with some of my new toys and made a birthday card for my SIL's upcoming birthday.  She has an extraordinary love of cheese, so I thought this image was perfect for her!


Image - House Mouse (new), coloured with my new Prismacolor Premier pencils (a Christmas gift from hubby!).  They were an absolute delight to work with, though I think I might have to up the contrast a bit for photographing.  Looks better IRL.
Tools - Martha Stewart edge punch (new - a Christmas gift from my mother)
Paper - Bazzill and Stampin' Up DP (retired)
Other - ribbon, brads and flowers all from my stash; sentiment computer generated.

This card is for the following fun challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - New something
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything goes (sorry, no tip this time :(  )

Thanks for stopping in and for taking the time to leave a comment!  I love to hear from you and it gives me the chance to visit you back.  Have a great week!




Hi Dawn
