House Mouse and Friends Baby Shower!

I am Thankful for....Babies!!

Our new challenge "I am thankful for Babies " is a celebration of the birth of a new baby boy to our teamie, Paula.
Paula with Nathan Ryan Joshua
Congratulations to Paula and her family on their new addition!
We decided to have a surprise card challenge for baby Nathan-oh so fun!!!

I had this card in my head for a long time, and was tickled to find this freebie file from Michelle My Belle's  Creations (see link to her post below)

I cut the file out of some lovely 'antiquey' type paper from SU!-so I decided to take that direction by distressing everything with Creamy Caramel. I added these cute little toys I cut with my Silhouette  and a few 'characters' peeping out of the dresser drawers!  Looks like a fun game of hide and seek!

We have two generous sponsors for this challenge:
House Mouse Designs-A $25 Voucher for their online store.
Di's Digi Downloads - $10 Voucher to DDD Shop

I hope you will join in our challenge this week!

I am absolutely, positively head over heels in love with the baby mouse with his bankie and passy. You just want to pick him up and love him and kiss his little pink nose. The chest is gorgeous and those mice are positioned beautifully. You are indeed talented and if someone had not come up with House Mouse stamps, I know you would have!!!!!! Such a creative and wonderful card.

Rica said...
