House Mouse First and New

There is a new challenge blog: House Mouse Mondays!

And my generous friend Stacy has shared some House Mouse images with me--so I can play along!!

HM 1st Birthday

The theme this week is *NEW* since this is the first challenge of this new blog. SO here is my first birthday card for someone who is NEW to birthdays. (I hope this is not TOO much of a stretch!!) Kids this age love high contrast and bright colors--so I dug out my last scrap of this wild paper and added some gel pen accents to it. (MY fabulous SIL got me a HUGE set of gel pens--glitter--metallic--neon--more--at Cosco--they even came in a COOL holder). The mouse is colored with colored pencils, and the *smoke* is smeared Stickles.

Now, to just wait for a little girl to turn one--LOL!!

Check back Tuesday for BLOG CANDY!!
