Have a Grape Day!

It is time for another House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  I had to think for a bit on this one.  The image itself was easy, and it is an image that I love to play with.  My difficulty was the amethyst color.  I don't work with purple shades very often. It is my birthstone, but just not a color that I wear, or use as a main point.  Well, thanks to my friends at House Mouse Challenge, I used it this time.  
Before I share my card for this challenge, I want to thank all of our friends at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  They have really motivated me.  Before our move 6 months ago, my stamping and scrapping basically had ceased to be. First my set up was not convenient to work with and then everything was getting packed as our previous house went into escrow.  I now have a large, well-lit room to work in and hubby and spoiled me rotten adding items to make it a convenient work space.  I promise to share pictures as soon as I get it cleaned up again. But back to our friends, thanks to them, I am stamping, coloring and scrapbooking again.  I have finished my baby girl's (4-legged, furred baby) albums since we lost her almost 3 years ago. Working on some old family photos right now and almost finished with an aunt that has intrigued me for some time, as I never meet her as she died when I was about 8 months old. 

Okay enough, I have a House Mouse card that I have finished and have ready to share with everyone.
I used Grape Dreams for this one, with Have A Grape Day for the sentiment.  The purple and green cardstock are from Bazzill but the patterned paper was part of my stash. The brads and gauzy ribbon are from my stash.
Thanks for stopping by.

With All My Heart

I have another card for the House Mouse Monday Challenge.  After watching the Big Flop of a game, I decided to drown my sorrows in another card. I did not follow the traditional colors of love on this card, but love how it came out.
The stamp is With All My Heart.
Paper is Basic Grey Picadilly
Twine is Doodle Twine.
The hearts on top are from the charms that I received from America in an earlier challenge. Thank you again America, have been using them more than I use to because of your generous gift.

Thanks so much for stopping by and looking at my card.

It's Time for Another House Mouse Monday Challenge

It is that time again.  I am really enjoying the challenges that are being put out.  It has been so long since I had played along with challenges and a lot of them are now gone, but not my beloved House Mouse.
Our challenge this time is love.  I could not remember if i had anything for this, but lo and behold I found 5 or 6 stamps that work perfectly for this.  So please if you have time go join House Mouse Monday Challenge.
I chose the stamp, 'I Give You My Heart'.  A fun stamp to play with.  After not being able to play and join these challenges for so long, I have actually forgotten what a lot of my stamps are.  It is almost like having a whole bunch of new stamps now.
Anyway, my image is colored with copics and mounted on some paper that I have had for so long, i don't even know what company it is from. The flowers are from Petaloo, the hearts and ribbon are from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by and looking.
