Looking for mojo

This has been a tough week for me.  3 flat tires!  I learned more about tires than I ever wanted to know.  Apparently, valve stems can leak and the tires go flat.  In the process of this, I lost all mojo for making cards.  I'm trying to force some this week.

My goal was to make Mother's Day cards for Operation Write Home.  I've been trying to decide how to do that with this stamp of horses.  I found I didn't have a stamp for Mother's Day that would fit on my card.  I decided that Thinking of You could be sent to a mother or someone else, making it more versatile.
Next, I decided to participate in the Our Daily Bread Designs challenge for February.  This challenge is to make a card using an image of fruit.  I don't have many stamps of fruit, but found this House Mouse stamp in my collection.

These colors look much better in person than they do in the scan.

  1. Velda,

    Thinking of you is perfect for a Mother's Day card and makes it much easier to use for any occassion if the hero so chooses. I love the mouse laying in the grapes. Can't you just imagine him sleeping there after one too many grapes. Thank you for making such a great card for the OWH challenge.
