House Mouse Challenge No. 35 ~ Get Well

A bandaid always helps!
A bandaid always helps!

Happy House Mouse Monday!! 

Looks like Mr. Mouse may have a tummy ache ~ but, of course, a bandaid always makes everything feel better!   🙂   FYI,  I used a REAL bandaid for this!  Stamped with Stazon ink and cut to fit.  I like things to be authentic!!

Our challenge this week is a Get Well project.  The stamp used is called Healit Bandages by Stampabilities, dated 1988 ~ I used my Distress inks  to color these guys, and added a computer generated sentiment to the image. 

I do love the embossed flowers on this card~ they are from 7 Kids College Fund ~ Assorted Brights Obsession Embossed Flowers by Prima7 Kids has a great selection of these flowers in every color of the rainbow, and as always, at a VERY affordable price!  

Hope you're on the mend

  19. Mary,
    You do beautiful miceys, that’s for sure. This card, much like all your others, is amazing. Lovin’ the bandaid, the perfect touch!!

    Here’s a story for you. I got my first HM image last October, it was a Halloween stamp and after I recieved it, I had no idea what to do with it!! So I turned to my computer, did a little Googling, and I came to your page. You’ve been in my “Favorites” ever since!! I have since found the HMMC blog and have dove in head over heels with a rampant mousie addiction. I am pretty sure though, that had I not found your creations that day, I would have scrapped the Halloween project altogether.

    So, long story short, thanks for all the terrific and inspiring projects!! I’ve really enjoyed checking them out!!
