Lost & Found


This really is my lucky day, because I won a recent House Mouse challenge and they've invited me to guest design for March and April!

The challenge for the HMFMC#165 is "Lost & Found." This lucky little mouse found a four-leaf clover! With St. Patrick's day arriving later this week, I used all green colors and a left-over piece of dsp that has shamrocks all over it. I colored the image with Copics, added some Geo Sparkler stickers and some PTI ribbon. The sentiment was computer generated.

Please be sure to click the links above to see what the other DT members have created for this fun challenge. You'll be glad you did!

Thanks for stopping by, and may this be YOUR lucky day today too!

I adore this image and you did such a sweet job with it. Great background paper and ribbon/bow. Perfect sentiment and I love the little gem scattered about. So glad you are guest designing, you always have such lovely cards. Enjoy the day.

They'll love having you as a Guest Designer. This card is adorable. I love the image. I really like the scattering of your gems, too.

For someone having a husband of Irish descent, I am a terrible person...have not made one St. Patrick's Day card. Shame on me.

What a great card. I had this stamp out to use for St. Patty's Day but never got around to using it. I like how you said he found the 4 leaf clover. The lost and found theme has totally thrown me. I'm not sure what that means or what to do.

Sherry Hickey said...

Beautiful card, Carol! It warms me Irish soul! The gorgeous ribbon is the perfect finishing touch. Congrats on being chosen Guest Designer over at House Mouse Challenge!

Aw, he's cute as can be. I have this stamp, and find it hard to color. (dunno why) You did a fab job with it. I am liking all the green trims that set him off so pretty & sweet. Great ribbon bow too along with the sparklies in the background. TFS & Hugs
