~~Surprise Surprise~~~

I am usually always lurking on the Cricut Card Message Board Forum.  It was the first place I visited when I started making cards and continue to do so when I need inspiration and ideas from.  Weekly there is a thread in the forum called Raq's Challenge that a wonderful group of ladies take turns posting sketches to inspire some wonderful cards.....  This week I used the second sketch .

This is my finished card that I made using Heidi Swapp papers I bought in a package at Tuesday Mornings when  I was visiting North Mrytle Beach this summer. 

I used the little mouse peeking out of the basket cut at 2.75 from Birthday bash.

And cut the mouse from Create a Critter at 3 inches for the inside of the card.  I love using embossing folders to give added interest to my papers. The sentiments are rub ons that I picked up a long time ago at Big Lots.  They are made by American Crafts.  The card is a A2 size card and many layers and popdots used with small touches of chalk ink  and pop dots for dimension also.

If you have the opportunity stop by the messageboards http://community.provocraft.com/Cricut-Community_postst83051_Raq-s-7-5-Challenge.aspx.  Check out all the wonderful work others do from the different sketches they put out their each week.  They are all truly inspiring!!!!!

This card is just adorable. Love those papers and that was so clever how you put the mouse on the inside of your card too! (Enjoyed looking through your blog too!)
