Sleeping with Strawberries

Time for a another little mousie and some mojo! This card is doing double challenge duty for this week's House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.


The theme for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is "spring". It was hard to pick an image for this one because I have so many that can be used for the theme. It finally came down to this one and Gruffies Digging Up Dirt. I finally decided on this one because I wanted to use the pink and red color combo and I thought it went well with that. I have my little Gruffies all colored though, so I may use them on another card sometime soon.
The sketch for this week's Mojo Monday challenge is shown above. I don't think they have ever had a sketch for this challenge that I didn't like. I stuck pretty close to the sketch, except for putting the sentiment in the embellishment part in the upper left corner instead of across the scallop piece. I also see now that my scallop trim piece doesn't go all the way across - oopsie. I guess I wasn't paying very good attention there. :)
Thanks for stopping by!

"How sweet" is the perfect sentiment for this precious card, because that was exactly what I was thinking when I first saw it:o) This has to be one of my favorite HM images!! I just love that stuffed, little belly:o) It is no secret that he had a grand time amongst those yummy strawberries!! Such a fabulous card in every conceivable way:o)
