Sweet little Mouse

    Hello everyone! I wasn't sure that i was going to be able to post a card today with the way things have been going, but i finally was able to finish one. I've sold 57 pumpkins today.  We grow pumpkins as a hobby for our kids college fund.  It keeps our kids busy too. This is their way of contributing to their fund by caring, picking and selling them.  We just go by the honor system and it has worked the last few years. It looks like the kids will be picking more pumpkins out of the patch this evening to refill our wagon.  Now that is good news!

     My card today is using a Meljen's Designs digi stamp called "Dandelion Mouse". I didn't get to play in the Meljens challenge last week so i wanted to be sure that i finished my card early this week. I colored the little mouse with my Copic markers and then i added white flower soft to the dandelion. The paper is from K&Company and the sentiment is from Whimsy stamps and Raindrop echo ticket sentiments. I weaved bakers string along the edges of the scalloped punch border and added 2 corners using my cuttlebug cut and emboss dies.
