Happy Monday!

Good Morning my blogging friends! My Sunday was busy as usual and quite productive! I did drag my husband to the store with me to buy the stuff for Thanksgiving. Our $156 bill was brought down to $105 with all the coupons and such that I had...neato!

So, I made a couple of things yesterday. The pattern for so very cute Candy Cane Mice have been floating around recently so I thought they were cute and would be good for Kyler's classmates so I decided to try them. Here is my result! I think my guy turned out well (I have one or two tweaks to make when I mass produce.) so I'll be making about 30 of them over the next month!

Yesterday, I had asked which set I should use stamping and Jennifer said from both catties BUT I just didn't have the time and lacked the patience to do that. So, I made a card from the Winter Mini with a set call Love Matters. The layout is from SCS's card sketch challenge. I think I like how it turned out...some elements more than others but overall it's a nice card. So, this is with the set Love Matters. The cardstock is Close to Cocoa, Taken with Teal, Designer Paper from Love Me and Whisper White. The ribbon is from the Winter Mini and is called Flirty Ribbon Originals (cute, huh?). I'm not sure you can see it but on the top right corner are 3 hearts stamped in taken with teal.

Hope you all have a great Monday! See you tomorrow!

Your mouse is adorable! What a great gift for Kyler to take to school.

I love the colors you chose on your card -- very pretty!
