House Mouse Challenge No. 80 ~ Monochrome

Happy House Mouse Monday!


Glad you could stop by today!   Time for a new challenge at the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog.   This week our challenge is Monochromatic cardz . . . my favorite!   I thought this adorable vintage wedding couple would be perfect for a black & white look.



I hope you’ll join us for this challenge.   As usual, all the details can be found at the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge blog  and while you’re there be sure to take a peek at the amazing monochromatic cardz from the awesome HM design team.

I’d also like to thank you all for your well wishes recently!   Feels like I’ve been sick forever … actually almost four weeks.    But, I’m back to normal and feeling soooo much better!   I hope everyone will bear with me as I try to play “catch-up” on so many messages in my inbox!    Slowly but surely!
