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.

House Mouse Happy 3rd Birthday!

This is for the House Mouse CHALLENGE # 104  BIRTHDAY theme with a Bunch of Flowers.
(though the Flowers are completely optional). Celebrating their 3rd birthday. ( Here is the website)
I tried something different. While on vacation this summer in Northern Wisconsin I found at one stamp store the House Mouse 3D cut outs. I thought I'd try it....though after cutting and cutting I decided I really like stamping MUCH better!!! Lots of little corners and pieces to cut! I did add some pop up dots to 3D the look and added some White Polar Flower Soft for the marshmallows and added some Sakura glitter pens to accent some other parts. I added a Happy Birthday bow and some flowers. I used stash birthday dp and blue GKD cs. The inside sentiments were cut outs from a stash pile.

Happy Birthday House Mouse!

Happy 3rd Birthday!
