A Sweet Baby Mouse

Yesterday, I got to spend some lovely quality time with my oldest daughter, Crystal. She needed a baby shower card for a boy with chevrons on it (I got my chevrons from Can You Digi It? and they are part of a beatiful set by Michelle).

I love the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS so we picked this lovely card by Jackie to case.

She also wanted to enter a few more challenges (she thinks they really fun), so I checked out Pile-it-on which always has a cool theme and links to other great themes. This week, the Pile-it-on theme is felt or fabric so we added some burlap just like Jackie did on her card. We used my old reliable House Mouse baby with pacifer image so we are entering this in the House Mouse challenge which is Autumn (we figured the woodsy background would help us qualify there). Finally, we found a cute challenge called Just Keep Creating that has an Anything Goes Theme and we love the name!

It was so nice to have this quality time with Crystal - it seems that once they grow up, you cherish every minute with them even more.

Hugz and hope you have a wonderful day!

    It is always a special time when you get to have your children around and great to be able to craft with your daughter.
