House of Mouse & Friends ~junk Challenge

For this weeks HM&F challenge #13 we were supposed to use something on our card that we found in our junk drawer. Well with all the junk in my drawer i didn't really have anything that would work with the HM images i have until i ran across a bottle of expired aspirin. (YIKES!) of coarse i proceeded to throw it in the trash and continue to figure out what to use for the challenge. As i was going through my images,(for the 10th time) i came across this image and thought about the bottle i just threw out. I grabbed the bottle out of the trash, pulled the cotton out and wahlah(???) this card came to life. Hey, i did find it in the junk drawer first-that should count right?lol.

For this card i stamped the image and then stamped the aspirin bottle image again. I cut it out, colored and added it to my main image with dimensionals. I gave my ice cube some color and added some liquid glass to give it more of a melting ice cube look. i matted my image and adhered it to my embossed base card, added my sentiment and bandaid and done. the bandaid has nothing to do with this image but it was so cute i just had to use it. Okay, i can hear the "enough already"-that is if you are still reading. I hope these two bring a smile to your face like they do me. Thanks for Looking and Have a Wonderful Day!!

This is a wonderful card. And, one of my favorite stamps. On this image, you can even use little "smartie" candies to make the aspirin delectable. Thanks for sharing. Martha Kay
