HMFMC #152 Transport

Well here I am after a   L-O-N-G   time of not making cards or blogging.  I just took the summer off from most things computer related.  Did a lot of outdoor work and spent time with friends and family. As of last week I am the wife of a retired man,  YAY!!!!!!!!!!,   so we may just take off from time to time to who-knows-where, but disregarding our travel days, I am hoping to get back into some sort of a regimen with blogging.  Maybe just a couple of days a week for now, but at least I will be taking the time to make some cards and do some blogging.  
So my first challenge is for House Mouse & Friends and this week we were challenged to make a card using some sort of transportation.  My little Amada mouse is  hitchin a ride on the back of this darling duck, which I think qualifies as transportation.

The image is titled Relaxing Ride and I colored it with Copics.  The mats are Night of Navy by SU! and the designer paper was in my scrap box, so I am sorry but I can't tell you who it is by. The sentiment is a retired SU! product.  My little burst type flowers were made with a punch I picked up at Michaels several years ago.  I added white mini brads to the centers and my final touch was to dash all around the dp.    I do hope you are all enjoying the weekend (long weekend in the US).  Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by.  I always appreciate your visit.  See you soon!


  1. Welcome back to the world of blogging and card-making!
