So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Wrapping You in Thoughts

This is for the House Mouse Challenge  Here is their website blog ....Buttons, Bow and Bling! I have been a follower...and they have such ADORABLE stuff!!!  I went with the Christmas theme as I've started to make my Christmas cards. This one I used Gina Kay Design red hot and white cs, with DCWV Christmas Stack dp. The stamp is House Mouse, of course, and the sentiments inside are by Stampabilities and Outlines. I used Ladybug, Cottage Ivy and Black Tuxedo Memento ink, colored with copics, Sakura glitter  pens, the buttons were Oriental Trading, the ribbon was stash, the bling and brads were stash. The die cuts were Spellbinders Labels 14 and Classic frames.


  1. Beautiful card Barbara. Love that cute image and the colour combo you've used. Thanks for joining the HM&F 100th challenge and blog hop.
