Treat yourself to a wonderful day


Happy Monday everyone! Today is the House Mouse Monday challenge #2-Lace It Up. For this challenge we are to use lace, paper lace or even a shoe lace. The lace on my card is paper lace that i sponged oak brown ink on to give it color. I have had this paper lace for over 5 years and everytime i looked at it i thought i will never use this, but could not get myself to throw it away or even give it away! well mark this day on my calendar, i actually found a reason to use it. see ladies you never know when you will need something you think you have no use for right now so, SAVE IT!! lol. anyway hope you all enjoy this little mouse. Have a great night.

This is beautiful!!! You colored the image perfectly!!! I also love the way you sponged blue and green around the image to represent the sky and grass. So very clever!

It's a good thing you held onto that gorgeous piece of paper lace:o) I am like you; I have things I never think I will use, but can't bear to part with...ya just never know when you might need it. I don't know about you, but usually when I throw something away...a day or two later it is exactly what I need. Murphy's Law, I suppose;o)
