House Mouse Monday Challenge #24

Typical week; here it is Saturday and I haven't posted anything since Monday. The week just gets away from me. I work, come home, (sometimes have a quick nap), have dinner and try to spend time each evening in the craft room, and then it's time for bed. I'm not the fastest creator so it can take several evenings to finish up a card. And, I made the mistake of joining Facebook. I don't know what that's going to entail but everyone says be careful, it's very addicting.

It was relatively slow at the office. Still a little worried about lay-offs. We missed out on another project which means no new work, but there was an interview on Friday which went very well. One can only hope.

I went to the dentist on Monday and had a glowing report. Now if only I could remember to floss more. Sue also had a doctor's appointment and we found out that she has to have hip replacement surgery. Finally some answers, she's been walking about like a question mark for a couple of months now.

Well, I digress... this post is really about The House Mouse Monday Challenge #24 "Tall and Thin". Another great challenge as this is not a card size that I work with very often.

"It's My Party" (HMJR1059) was stamped in coal black Ancient Page and colored with Prismacolor pencils (with gamsol). "Happy Birthday" (D175) is from Endless Creations and stamped in Encore Ultimate Metallic Blue. The DP is Frances Meyer (I've had it for years) and the CS is Bazzill. Everything was edged in Encore Blue and Fluid Chalk Chestnut Roan. Lastly, I used a Martha Stewart punch, Prima flowers, Hero Arts gemstones and ribbon from Michaels.

I need a birthday card for a friend at work. I think this one will work perfectly.

Enjoy and thanks for looking.
Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Cheers, Judi
