~ Flowers and Flourishes ~
That's the theme over at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge!
Due to unforseen circumstances, we're at a kinda stand still on the renovations,
so I whipped this up the other night!
Those are not the flourishes I was looking for,
and hey,
there's some on the Birthday stamp!!!
You only have a couple days, so get out your HM, Gruffies & Happy Hoppers!
I'm going to link this up over at
and if I'd have been on the ball I'd have put some lace on there!
It's a short week for us, and I'm soooo looking forward to it!
I'm one of those people who "Need a day between Saturday & Sunday"!
I'm cooking on Saturday........
Happy Easter everyone!
Hope you're all well!
Talk to ya later!
Ta ta for now!

  9. Gail, just adorable! I love those flourishes and your flowers as well. Real Fun Card.

  10. He's so cute! I love the expression on his little face, there must have been something 'good' in that glass. Your coloring is terrific, as you've gotten the translucence of the glass done perfectly. That's not so easy to do. Nice scalloped window for this little mouse with his flower in his drinkie, and the lavender ribbon certainly brought out the same color on the dp. Good job! TFS & Hugs

  11. Adorable and I love all your extra touches. Great card.
    Must be real hard to have a long week end (not) lol

  12. Hi Gail, fun bright colors, and loving your little mouse in the glass. Bling on the flourish is wonderful too.
