"New" is the word! The House Mouse and Friends Challenge is to use something New, the Twisted Sisters challenge is focusing on New (no pink - I cheated a bit on the Pacifier - sorry Tater), and I wanted to use something new!
My sweet niece Stephanie is going to have a baby next month and her shower is next weekend. All the aunts (there are 9 of us) are throwing her a shower; last I heard there will be 80 people, and I am in charge of pimento cheese sandwiches - yum! I use bacon bits and three different cheeses in mine and I love it. I am putting the recipe on my blog if you want to try it:
Stephanie's husband, Josh, is a big hunter and the baby is going to be a boy so I made my little house mouse card using camo. The camo paper is new to me but everything eles is old. I figure the paper and the new baby on the way count is the new part of the challenges#.
I used this week's Queen for the Day, Wendy2512's sweet peaceful rest card as my inspiration:

Oh my! Camo BABY! Yes! Nancy, this is so perfect, and I do believe Sweet Tater will forgive ya on the wee touch of uh..."light red". Lol! Gosh, if someone told me we had to make a camo baby card, with HM's, flowers and a big delish bow, I think I 'd have to walk away crying. This is about the cutest baby card ever. Love how you are blessing Wendy too, what a treat! LYMIMIMIMI

This is such a cute idea for a baby card! You are so creative...I just love how you made this so special for them! I am sure they will just love it! I am with Pat on this one, if I was told I had to use the colors and patterns you did for a baby card, I would have just thrown my hat down....but you did it, and you rocked it! Great job!

You certainly put this precious cammo baby card together pefectly! I just love the HM image...colored to perfection, I might add! The cammo paper is just so cool, but I really LOVE the bow and pine branches with flowers! Superb!

I have to admit that my head was on sideways when I first saw the cammo paper and the elegant spray together...thanks for the clarification in your description. What a hoot!! This is about the most perfect personalized baby card that I have ever seen, way beyond my feeble imagination. Your niece and family are so lucky to have you! Hugz.
