January 1, 2021


Hello bloggers,
It's been a long few months since I posted a card.
I have moved from Ohio to Arizona, got Covid for most of November, and then had to unpack and organize before I could get my head into making a card. Praise God we all got through the sickness ok with no lingering after-effects. We were sure sick for a while and my son-in-law complained that he can't ever remember feeling that sick for that long ever before. 

As I have mentioned before, my friend Dee and I have a challenge going between the two of us and we use the alphabet as our prompt. We are on I right now and I had decided to use this mouse with the ink bottle for "ink", even before the move. And I didn't change my mind! 

So here's my card with this cute little mouse. It's a very simple card but that's all I could do for right now.


This is a Penny Black stamp from a long time ago. I bought it used about 10 years ago.  I don't use these mouse stamps very often, but I like them a lot.
I used Bristol water color paper but colored everything with pencils. 

The frame is a die cut from Gina Marie designs and it's the "wonky stitched frame". This is my first time I got to use it because I bought it just before we moved here. 

The mouse on the envelope was colored with pencils too. 

So I am entering this card in these challenges:
Watercooler Wednesday Challenges: anything goes

Die Cut Divas Challenge: frame it... my frame is a die cut

Love to Scrap Challenge: Anything goes

Patties Creation Challenge: Anything goes

Thank you for visiting me
I pray for you and your loved ones to be blessed greatly in 
2021!!!

  4. What a wonderful card Elena! The simplicity of it gives it a very elegant feel and I love the way the little mouse is putting the finishing touches to the letters. I'm so glad to hear you've recovered after being so ill and after a stressful time moving too. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2021 and blessings in your new home. Vicky x
