Lucky Mouse

Woohoo!  Both my kiddos are off this week for spring break.  My daughter came in late Friday  night from Vermont.  Her flight was smooth, no delays, actually arrived here 15 minutes early.  Way to go Southwest Airlines!  That's the only airline we have had no travel issues with since Shelbie started college in Vermont! 

I'm getting this House Mouse card in under the wire.  I had it finished yesterday but got distracted and forgot to post it.  Their challenge is to make a multifold card.  I love easel cards and hadn't tried one of the twisted easels yet, so decided to give it a whirl.  I used the sketch at The Pixie Cottage.   I colored the image with Prismacolors and Copics.  Added the rhinestone clover on inside and out.  This is my only St. Paddy's card. 

This week I will still post a few cards, but not as many as I have been so I can enjoy lots of time with my kiddos.  I'm still working only part time, so that gives me extra time with them.   Also, I have another project to finish this week, as my daughter needs to take it back to school with her.  It involves what you see in this picture, as well as thread, boning, lining, etc...  I will post the finished product, with Shelbie modeling it, later this week.   Kind of hard to tell, but it's wine colored satin, along with wine colored georgette with different colored floral design.  Beautiful fabrics!
