Sweet Wishes for Stefanie

My sweet niece Stefanie (and her husband Josh, of course) will soon be having a little one. Sweet little Logan is due in February. Josh is a big hunter so I wanted to make a card for next week's shower that incorporated camo in it. I love this little House Mouse image - I think every card I have made with it came out unbelievably cute.

This week's House Mouse and Friends Challenge (#110) is to make a card with something old and something new. My camo paper is new and my great nephew will be really new too. Also, the Twisted Sister Challenge is to make a card with something new but no pink (I cheated and used pink on a part of the pacifier).

I used the following on this card:
*House Mouse Monica with Pacifer Stamp
*Spellbinders Circle Die and Scalloped Circle Die
*Prima flowers
*Martha Stewart Branch Punch
*Marks Finest Papers - dark chocolate ribbon
*Stampin' UP! Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
*Hobby Lobby Paper Studio camo designer paper
*Glossy Accents
*Ranger Diamond Stickles
*Copic Markers

I get to make my favorite pimento cheese recipe for the shower next weekend. I will post a picture when I make the sandwiches for 80 next week. Here is my recipe:

1 cup of shredded cheddar
1 cup of shredded American Cheese (I like the kind that is not individually wrapped)
1/4 up shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 teaspoon of Tabasco
large jar of chopped Pimentos, drained
3 eggs chopped
1/4 cup bacon bits
dash of sugar
Mix in enough mayonnaise to make the spread the consistency you like (I like Kraft for this recipe).

Hugz to all, but special hugz to Stefanie and Josh!

  4. Totally awesome. What a great card for a new baby boy, his parents are going to love it! The camo is great! Thanks for joining us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.


  5. I already commented on your adorable card on SCS, but I just had to visit your blog for that yummy recipe! Thanks!!

  6. I love the card and know that STef and Josh will too. It is adorable and as usual you did a great job with it. Love your cards and love you,

  7. How adorable, Nancy! I love that mouse with the HUGE pacifier. And, I bet that camo paper will be a huge hit with the dad-to-be.

    A recipe to get me into trouble. I made the peanut clusters after Emily Keaton left a recipe on her blog. I surely gained weight eating those yummies over Christmas. Thanks, though. This sounds great.

  8. Oh, this will be perfect for your niece, Nancy!! Totally fun for a hunting family. :D

  9. What a cute image and I love the foliage with the flower you created at the bottom. Fabulous card!

  10. Hi ya
    wow what a stunning card, awesome colouring, beautiful papers & embelies, thank you for joining us at House Mouse & Friends this week, sue,x

  11. This is adorable Nancy. It has a wonderful outdoorsy feel to it with the greenery and the Camouflage paper. My family is all hunters-so I "get it" How fun having a new baby soon in your family. Any news on the "wedding" colors??? lol Exciting times in your future I see. Have fun and enjoy every minute of the blessings!

  12. Wow. Love your house mouse card. I honestly thought that greenery was "real" or atleast a fake branch. I didn't know it was paper until I read your post... very pretty!

  13. Nancy, what a thoughtful, sweet way to include the 'hunter' in this baby card! I've never seen a camo baby card before! Maybe you'll be starting a trend. Who knows?
