Good afternoon everyone! I hope you have more interesting plans than I have this afternoon,,,,,after a busy and lazy weekend, my house is about destroyed,,,,,,I am putting off cleaning it as we speak LOL. But as soon as I'm done posting this card, off to the kitchen I go to load the dishwasher,,,,,,,,maybe if I hurry, I can get in some more crafting today!

Ever feel bored with the usual stuff you do and just want a little change???? Yep, that's me right now,,,,,so the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge number 113 this 2 week stretch is "Make wishes come true!" It can take many forms from wishing well to wishing on a star to wishing someone feel better,,,,,,however you interpret it! I love my HMF stamps, and don't use them nearly enough,,,,,,,so I decided it was time to change that!

And so I've done my "get well soon" card for a friend who is in the hospital this week,,,,,,

The paper is scraps,,,,,,,The paper company, MME and Tim Holtz Advantus,,,,,,,I've used "Mouse Drops" stamp here and colored them with copics,,,,,aren't they just adorable? I love this stamp because it's SO easy and quick to color!

I've cut them out with circles large,,,,,layered that on top of Parisian Motifs and then layered the whole over postage stamps,,,,,,,,

my flowers were made from the small and medium elements of the Parisian motifs, simply shaped with a stylus and the layers popped up on dots and a pretty button glued in the center of each,,,,,,easy as pie. I made the leaves out of brown card stock and cut with the spellbinders foliage dies.  A brown butterfly bow, a stick pin, a free online sentiment and a tiny gold heart and she's finished!

Here's a close up of the Mouses!

Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed the card!
