Time for Fall Cards!

Here are 2 more cards using the adorable Harvest Mouse stamps and a similar sketch:

Harvest Mouse

supplies: cream cardstock, Lawn Fawn Let's Polka dotted paper, MFT Harvest Mouse set, Spectrum Aqua Markers to color, Simon Stitched Circle and Small Forest Tree dies

Fall Hugs

supplies: cream cardstock, Lawn Fawn's Into the Woods papers, MFT Harvest Mouse, Spectrum Noir colored pencils, Simon's Stitched Circle and Small Forest Tree dies, Kelly Purkey alphabet stickers, Winnie & Walter "hugs" from The Big, the Bold, & Friends clear stamps, adhesive foam squares

We have a family story about mice.  My sister, 7 years younger than me, has always loved all animals.  One Christmas, before my Denny and I were married, he got her a game.  She asked if she could exchange it for some mice.  My husband made her get permission from my Mom, who said okay, as long as they were of the same sex.........I think you can imagine the end of the story.  In just a few weeks her 2 little mice had expanded to dozens - certainly "a harvest of blessings", at least to her!  I'll be sending the 2nd card to her this fall.....

I hope to see you again on Wednesday with my Anything Goes cards for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
