House Mouse Challenge

Coffee of the Day - Seattle's Best Cinnabon

I have decided that my poor House Mouse stamps need some love, so I have joined the House Mouse Monday Challenge group. I made this card, which is a huge 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" because of the stamp size. I know that my hubby, David, can't seem to get enough football on Sunday afternoons after church. So this seemed to be the perfect stamp to use this week! Our church adults group has a Super Bowl party every year, so perhaps I'll save this until then as a 'thank you' card. Of course you must notice the burnt orange shoe of the football player - all for my Texas Longhorns, baby! ;) The decorative papers are my fave brand, Basic Grey. These are from the Recess (stripe and plaid) and Boxer (main image wavy) collections.

In case you haven't noticed yet, I try to link certain products back to their website to make it easier for you if shopping. As always, if you have any questions about anything you see here, just send me an email (click on the profile button to see email info).

I'll be posting blog candy on Friday. Be sure to check back so you can enter to win!

Hope that you are having a wonderful day!

Lovely card. Great colouring, and I really like the look of the squiggly card/paper you used to stamp the image on.
Take care & keep smiling
