The challenge for the next two weeks is Liquid Refreshments with a House Mouse, Gruffie, or Happy Hopper image.
I only have a few HM images that would work for the challenge and I have to share with you my thought process before I picked this image. I have the HM image with a glass of lemonade and I just knew that would be used by some of the DT so I decided to think like Pat Smethers (Blooms in a Box). I thought I might be able to use coffee or tea as a medium to make the card. I know Pat has been known to use coffee grounds to make chocolate sprinkles on a cake - I almost went there...and then I thought I could make some coffee and dip my paper in it. I didn't want to wait for it to dry, but I promise you I am going to try it for one of the MIX challenges.
Hope you have time in the next two weeks to play in the challenge too.
Happy Monday (or whatever day it is when you view this) - Hugz!
PS - Thanks to Pat, Stacy, and Pam for the cute little things you sent me that I used on this card - both were sent years and years ago and I wonder if any of you even remember sending them. Extra hugs to you all!
