Spring Flowers??

Happy House Mouse Monday!!  

Our challenge this week is a SHAPED card….ANY shape, other than a square or a rectangle!     I really had fun with this one.   My first card is a Flower Pot shape…along with some really cute spring flowers!

The inside sentiment says “Sending you a bouquet of good cheer”!  Unfortunately, the photo is MIA!!


As I said, I had sooooooo much fun with this challenge, that I did ANOTHER card!  I’ve had these stamps for awhile and thought this would be the perfect time to use them!   The “Ptooie” sentiment just cracks me up!

  8. Hi Mary, these cards a fabulous, the silk flowers around the little mices heads is great and the apple card did make me giggle, reminds me of me eating cherries, in my book you can’t eat cherries without spitting the stones out, needless to say I eat them outside where I can Ptooie them out and see how far I can get them 😛
    Take care & keep smiling

  9. Oh my goodness, how cute are these two cards. Love them both,but have to tell you, the faces on those cute “mouse flowers” are adorable, brought to life by your absolutely stunning coloring. The apple is adorable too. How clever are you! Wonderful, Wonderful.

  10. Oh my heavens, what cards these are. Totally so striking and cleverly made! Love how you have the faces on the flowers in the pot – wow!!

  11. Absolutely fantastic Mary. What wonderful ideas you have. I just love those mice in the flowers. Reminds me of the a TV show from years ago, called The Flowerpot Men. I loved that show.

  12. OMG Mary! These are insanely GORGEOUS!!! WOW! TOOOOOO CUTE!

  13. WOW these are both so cute! I love the flowers the best.

  14. Oh my goodness, Mary…these cards are both wonderful! The apple one is so cute and that sentiment is hilarious! I love, love the flower pot card. You did a great job on both of these!

  15. Well in looking at them both, I like the flower mice the best. The 3-D effect and the quality of your colouring makes them look very life-like.


  16. This is the CUTEST house mouse card I’ve seen!!! I can tell you put a lot of time into this card. I am curious how you made your flower pot and how and it opens.

  17. This card is awesome Mary 😀

  18. HOLY COW!! AMAZING!! pardon the drool! ha ha ha

  19. These are both astoundingly cute! And the flowers around the mice’s faces. Brilliant! :O)
