Be Home Soon


Here's my take on the OWH sketch challenge #237. I used a fun House Mouse image, and colored those big shoes with fluorescent Copics. I also colored the blue and peach panels with the same Copics to color coordinate everything. I embossed the background with a SB M-bossabilites kickin' rubber ef, and used a Hero Arts sentiment on the bottom. The circle sentiment was made with a set of $1 stick stamps and matted with chocolate chip cardstock. I added a piece of ribbon from my stash, and stamped a pair of big shoe footprints on the inside in keeping with the "big shoes to fill" theme.

Have a great Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

I like all the shoe imagery. It's cute and different.

Today a squirrel ran up a tree in my yard carrying an apple in its mouth. I bet he would have liked an apple pie, too, just like the mouse on your card. :)

How cute this card is Carol! Hubby is waiting for me to bake him an apple pie, so I guess I will need to get on that. I love the little mouse in his "big" shoes, he is just too cute and I love the "coming home soon" sentiment. Just a cute, cute card. Hugs, Brenda

Aw, these floppy tennies on this mouse are just too cute. Love the fluorescent copics, and they were a great idea on this image. Like the way you've color coordinated the border strips too, and that embossed background is wonderful with this mouse! Great card. TFS & hugs

So cute! It's been a long time since I had pie...and you have made me hungry for some. Maybe I'll order some for dessert after we have our Anniversary dinner! (Don't usually order dessert so that would be a treat for sure!)

I'd come home for any flavor pie. I have seen a lot of pie cards today - I am going to have to make one or something. Cute card - love the image and your sentiment is yummy and fun. Hugz!
