And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

For the Love of Mice!!!

If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse. This Walt Disney quote I found that just jumped out at me. When I first started card making, house mouse stamps were my first obsession. I remember my first ever visit to Hobby Lobby. I was in heaven. I did not have much $$ to purchase near as many as I would have liked, nor do I think I ever will ... but I get them when I can and watch my collection grow. When I look at them I smile. It is more than stamps, memories are added to them. Friends cards, RAKS, my first cards (i still laugh at). As I grew and started making more cards, I got away from my mice more than I wanted to. I explored and tried new things. I then found this thing we call our blogs. It is more than that to me. I love mine and the wonderful ladies I have met and continue to meet here. Nothing makes me happier than sharing mine and seeing everyones creations. Soon after starting my blog .. I found it! The house mouse challenge group. They inspired me and made me get my mousies back out.

I LONG for Mondays now only because of this challenge. It is my most favorite challenge and the one that I always set out to make sure I do. I love House Mouse, the group, all of the wonderful friends i have met there. Everyone is so nice and so encouraging. I could not think of a better group of ladies to 'hang out' with.

That all being said, a group of wonderful friends on Cafe Mom ((where i first discovered my love for card making)) told me last night that House Mouse was having a DT call. I did not think it was for this group, how did i miss that? I was thinking. I found it and sure enough there it was. I went back and several other of my wonderful friends were telling me to do it, some were cheering and some were threatening ;) ((you know who you are, and I love you MWAH!)) I think in some way this whole spill tells you why I would like to be considered for the House mouse DT. Thank you for the opportunity and I hope you enjoy my cards.


  1. I was wondering when you were going to post your application:o) All of these are out-of-this-world fantastic!!!! I love the musical notes and the incredible sentiment on the first one...that amazing funky heart on the second...and the fabulous layout on the last card. Now, the coloring on all of them is superb, primo, brilliant, and every other word that says first class. The papers and the layouts are all equally as amazing!!! I really, really love the way you spotlighted the two the last card. You know how much I adore all your cards, but you always have a way of bringing these precious critters to life!!! I love each of these stunning creations, and I wish you the very best of luck:o)
