Baking Mice

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this first Saturday in March. Another weekend is upon us and hopefully a crafty one for you. 

Today I was organizing one of the bedroom closets and I happened to notice a scrapbook that I started for my oldest son about 15 years ago. Yikes- I don't know why I never completed it. But my goal now is to complete this book for him. I would like to give it to him for Father's Day. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #917 on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use bermuda bay, parakeet party and highland heather for our color trio. 
bermuda bay, parakeet party, highland heather

For my card I used a CottageCutz Christmas die (Christmas Baking Mice) and turned it into a birthday card. My next door neighbor is an avid baker so this card is perfect for her. She loved the card by the way. 

I stenciled a brick wall background with peacock feathers distress ink - it's a close match to bermuda bay.

I cut the baking mice in the challenge colors and some allowed neutrals. I used some older Stampin' Up designer paper the- "wood textures" collection for the wood floor. The Happy Birthday sentiment is also a die from CottageCutz- Happy Birthday w/Shadow die.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
