House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #55

Finally! Some stampin' time came my way! Yeah...I made some fun cards yesterday and now I am working on how to edit and resize on my new computer programs. That stuff can be so frustrating for a computer nerd. There are about 5 million ways to do this, it's just remembering how I did it in the first place! I'm getting there. Can't wait to show you everything I made yesterday. I have some fun stuff to share this week!

This card was made for the current House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. The challenge was aperture...which they explained basically meant a card with a hole in it.(hopefully a hole you put there on purpose) Hey, I thought I could do that pretty easy, and it was! I just used my nestie and VIOLA!

What you are seeing in the top picture is a peek through the circle I cut out with my nestie. I then made a little red nestie frame to go around the hole and added some 'Jenny' doodles LOL! I always think of Jenny Gropp when I get brave enough to add a few dots here and there on my card. I am really not brave enough to doodle too much because I know I will mess up big time.

Jenny really is the Queen of Doodles and has a wonderful tutorial on how she does it (which I read after I made this card-I might have been braver had I read this first) Her doodles are much more fancy schmancy than mine though.

Nothing better than a hot cup of cocoa!
