...Library Mouse

Thanks goodness it's Monday...and the boys have gone back to school! LOL! It's "Mom Time" again, and I have some really fun stuff to share with you! The Greeting Farm is getting geared up for their December release, and you are in for a treat! Today and tomorrow the design team will be showing some samples of the new images that will be available tomorrow night after our "Sweet Messages Blog Hop". The images being showcased by everyone today were created by a new and superb artist, Elizabeth Dulemba. She will be our featured new artist for December, and has three phenomenal new images lined up for you to purchase.

This little guy was stamped and embossed on watercolor paper, then colored with an Aquapainter and ink refills. I purchased a pad of 12X12 K & Company Wild Saffron designer papers a little over a week ago, so I decided to use it as my jumping-off point for the card. I loved the yellows, blues, reds, and greens in the patterns...aren't they gorgeous? I used one of the sentiments from Verve's set "Party Time", then punched it out using circle punches. I completed the card by embellishing with brads, ribbon, linen thread, and a button.

Now let's see what the rest of the DT is doing today: That's it for me! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another Tuesday Sketch Challenge AND a TGF Blog Hop! Until then...
