MMSC8 and HM# 44

Hello everyone!

I got to play a bit this week and combined the House Mouse Challenge #44 (to use Paper Tole) with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge 8. I love these sketches! Here is a link to the sketch this week.

This one is soooooo not my typical style! LOL! I tend more to the lightly elegant... not fussy but just classy. Well, this Basic Grey Euphoria is pretty busy! But you know... I like it and since our Church is in need of cards for kids and teens I thought this might be perfect for that!

My Happy Hopper is from Stampabilities and is called "It's a Party". I stamped with Stazon Jet Black and colored with Prisma Pencils and blended with Odor Free Mineral Spirits. I stamped the image a second time and cut out the hat and cake for the tole challenge. The circle element to the sketch is a Nesties Blossom cut from Cool Caribbean cs. The base of the card is Purely Pomegranate. The DP is BasicGrey Euphoria. The flowers are from K&Co. I added Stickles to the frosting.

I had fun with this one. If you haven't played the Midnight Madness Sketch yet... try it... you'll like it!!! There is a link in my Right Side Bar that will take you right to it. If you link your card by Sunday night you'll be entered in a drawing for some great prizes!!!

I hope you all had fun on yesterday's Our Daily Bread Designs Blog Hop! I know we all had a blast!!

I have a ton going on this weekend and lots of company coming... I hope you all have a great weekend! Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!!!

P.S. It took me forever to leave a comment. I kept clicking but it would not let me into the comment section. Ugh... Anyway. Great job.
