Life is Soooo Sweet!

I made this card for this week's House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge - Something Sweet. I also knocked out another challenge by using the sketch from this week's Sketch Saturday challenge.
I haven't participated in the last couple of House Mouse and Friends challenges. The mousie mojo just wasn't there for some reason. But as soon as I saw the theme for this week's challenge I knew I had to use my new Gruffies "Beary Full of Truffles" stamp. I don't think there's any such thing as an ugly Gruffie, but this is one of my two very favorite images. My other is the "All Warm and Furry" where he's drinking the tea. Too cute for words!

The Sketch Saturday sketch for this week is posted below. For once, I followed the sketch pretty much just like it was presented. The image fit it just right.

Thanks for checking out my card. I'd love it if you'd leave a comment to let me know you were here. This may be the last card I post this week. My parents are coming for Easter weekend and I may not get to the craft room until they leave. You never know though - I may have one of those nights where I have trouble sleeping and find a challenge I can't resist. :)
