Travelling Mouse

I've been MIA from my blog for a few weeks.  Chuck and I have been doing spring cleaning and yard work in our spare time, but I've missed my paper play time! 

Over on the House Mouse challenge blog it's travel time, which is perfect timing for me because I'm off to Waco tomorrow to a state architecture contest my son is in.  Then next week I'll be heading to Vermont to see my future son-in-law graduate from Norwich University, and then road trip to bring my daughter back for the summer.  Oops, I wandered off track there.  :)  For this challenge I chose this super cute Hummingbird Express image, colored with Copics.   I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch, added some floss that fits in Our Creative Corner challenge, and used the recipe from Crazy 4 Challenges (3 different DP, 2 flowers, 1 button).   The scalloped square got some embossing.
