House Mouse Challenge #70-Goodbye and Farewell

Happy Saturday afternoon, everyone! Did a little gardening this morning, but now it is way too hot out there to do much of anything so I am in my craft room keeping cool and creating...which is really more fun!

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge is having their first ever BLOG HOP with some awesome prizes and great inspiration along the way. Check it out here:

They are adding some very talented ladies to their fabulous team and always have such fun challenges using House Mouse stamps. I think of entering every week and then ......
well, you know how that goes :-P
But, anywho, today's the day and here's my first entry for their "Goodbye/Farewell" card challenge.
Click on both images for more detail, the large image shows how shimmery "Shimmerz" paints are and the small photo shows off the vibrant colors better.

My Card~
Stamp: House Mouse "I Give You My Heart" ~ this image makes me think of someone leaving cause a piece of my heart goes with them
Cardstock: The melon colored mat is from DCWV: the base card is actually a note card front from "Colorbox"
Ink: image was stamped with "Ranger" coffee and colored in with Shimmerz paints
Tools & Embellishments: The border punch is Martha Stewart and the shimmery yellow ribbon is from Michaels

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ if you leave me a comment, I will return to your Blog and say Hi! :) :)
