The whole gang!

Happy House Mouse Monday once again!   

Now don’t these guys look oh so VERY happy ~ chocolate will do that!  I can personally attest to this fact!  

Our challenge this week is to use the colors of Neapolitan Ice Cream ~ Chocolate, Strawberry & Vanilla!   I love these colors….and the ice cream too!

Life is like box of chocolates ...

Life is like box of chocolates ...

I don’t know about you, but I can’t even think this sentiment in my head without hearing Forest’s voice!   I’m referring to Forest Gump….and, had I finished this card, the inside would say ~  You never know what you’re gonna get!     🙂

I’m so happy no one saw me at Hobby Lobby when I found this ribbon.  I was so excited that it seemed to be so perfect for this stamp!!   It’s truly the little things that really matter most.

Be sure to take a peek at all the “yummy” Neapolitan Ice Cream cardz by the awesome House Mouse Design Team.    AND, I hope you can join us for this fun challenge.        Have a great week!
