Make a Wish

I have mentioned several times that I love doing the challenge blogs. I could happily spend my days making cards and doing challenges. But I also must work and take care of my family, so I can only do so many challenges in a week. This week I got lucky - I managed to do four of them with this one card - House Mouse and Friends, Mojo Monday, Cupcake Craft Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

The theme for this week's House Mouse and Friends Challenge is birthday. There are so many great House Mouse, Happy Hopper and Gruffies stamps with a birthday theme, that one was kind of tough to choose for. I chose Make a Wish - it's super cute, and it's small enough to fit the sketch I was using.

This week's Mojo Monday sketch is below. I don't think there has been a Mojo Monday sketch that I didn't like, This one is very versatile and super simple to work with. I think I will definitely use it again.
My third challenge for this card is the Cupcake Craft Challenge. The theme for this challenge is called "2-2-2". We were to use two colors (plus a neutral), two ribbons and two shapes. Technically, I don't know if I met the two colors or not. I mainly used green and blue, but I had to use a couple other colors for the mice :). For the ribbon I used a wide green ribbon and a more narrow blue and green ribbon in the center. I also created a bow with both. The two shapes are rectangles and circles.

The final challenge is Simon Says Stamp, which was just posted today. The theme this week is animals. That was probably the easiest of the challenges to meet.

Thanks for stopping by!

That sketch is awesome! I love your card and the colors you chose. That image is so adorable. I think I need to look for sketches more often. Especially since I want to make some cards for Cards for Heroes. Beautiful work!
