HMFMC #127 Back to School or the Office

Here's my card for the House Mouse HMFMC#127 to make a "back to school or office" card. This was the only HM image I have that might fit this category, and wherever this guy happens to be, he's clearly overwhelmed with paperwork! Thus the hand-written sentiment! LOL It seemed perfect for the image :) I used some alphabet papers from Pink Paislee and dsp's from a fall stack by DCWV. Punches used were the MS arch lattice, and EK zig-zag. The image was die cut with a SB labels eighteen, and I hand-drew with a black marker around the inside edge of the die before cutting. Coloring was done with Copics.

Have a great Tuesday, and thanks for stopping by!

This is so cute, and just perfect for this challenge. I have this stamp too, I bought it to make a card for my daughter. Hope you have a good week.

Cute card, Carol! I'm just hoping that isn't a pile of bills to be paid....yuck! I like how you drew around the die before removing...adds a nice touch.

Carol, This card is just precious. I love all the different colored papers Gruffie seems to be trying to handle as well as the fabulous background paper. I'm trying to figure out exactly what those symbols Gruffie is mumbling stand for or don't I want to know? LOL That was one of the best ideas I've seen in ages.

So cute..I so feel like this during the harvest! Love the tracing of the nestie! I keep trying it and it looks ugly. Maybe I will give it another try. Super pairing of image and DP too. #$%@!!!

That is so fun, Carol! I actually have that sentiment in a stamp. Remind me to show you and you can stamp some off. It is so fitting for many occasions! This Gruffie is quite adorable!
