HM119, SOS51, and SC384

 Here is my card for the House Mouse Challenge #119 which requires us to use "humor" in our cards. I think this hilarious image can hold it's own level of humor, but I added a computer-generated sentiment to make the recipient smile for sure. I'd imagine if I had two big corn kernels in my mouth, I wouldn't be able to say "teeth" either! LOL The dsp is from On The Bright Side One by MME. and I added some black accents. The image was stamped on wc paper and colored with Tombows, then completely covered and embossed with Versamark and clear detail ep. I had to add those little mouse prints and "spatters" just for fun :)
This one is for the Shopping Our Stash challenge #51 to use 3 or more different designer papers. I've been hoarding this SU! paper pad of dsp for too long, and now that there are new in colors about to hit the market, it's time to actually USE these papers! The colors are Concord Crush, Poppy Parade, and Pear Pizzazz. I used a retired Carl punch, adding some hoarded buttons in matching colors. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, done in Concord Crush and Pear Pizzazz. A touch of white satin ribbon brought everything into balance for the final touch.

This is my card for the SC384 sketch challenge. I just let this cute pre-colored image do all the work for me here. I added a sentiment from the SNSS Christmas Tags set, and some Viva liquid pearl drops to the punched border, along with an embossed background using the square lattice ef. I used cardstock from a paper pad by the Paper co that I've had for eons!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I wish you a wonderful Wednesday!

All the cards are great! I have to say, though, the first one tickled me...your sentiment is just perfect and so funny. The little mouse prints are cute as can be.
You are a cardmaking machine and do the 'bestest' work.
