Thanks to good hearts like you!

Today I want to say a special thank you for those whom frequent my blog because I really do appreciate it.  Because of you, I find a reason to create and  share my love for crafting.  Much thanks and ♥  for helping me to do this.    Tonight I am dedicating some time to catch up on my blurfing.  I think I have a thousand posts to review so I am plan on making a hot beverage and catching up. 
For now, I want to share two cards.  The first is for Penny's and features Karen's Doodle's Bigsby, the cutest little mouse! He's cute because he's on paper.  IRL, not a fave creature for me.  I can handle one anywhere but in my house.  :-)

I started with a white cardbase and then layered with a Fancy Pant's print paper for the top and then the bottom is a Terresa Collin's Christmas paper ledger.  I love using themed papers for everyday use.  I have been hoarding this scrap for some time.  I added a large rick rack trim stapled with my tiny attacher.  The sentiment is from SP & Co's Bold Sentiments stamped with black ink and a little red button for embellishing.  I did add two craft colored photo corners for the image because I wanted it to look finished. 
Challenges I would like to enter this card in:
Crafty Boots Challenge: Zoo or Animal
Lollipop Crafts: #52 Critters
Ruby's Rainbow: #14 Cute and Cuddly
Paper Shelter: #35 We Love Animals

My next card is for Crafty Creations.  Another scrap paper feature. 
I used Sass Lass (sad to read they are closing their doors), American Crafts, and Crate Paper (read about it being bought by American Crafts here) for this.  The image is a Stretch n Bubbles I won and decided fit perfectly with this K Andrew sentiment.   That's a Westrim pom pom fiber stapled again with my tiny attacher.  Can you tell I love it?  :-) 
Challenge I would like to enter this card in:

Crafty Cardmakers: #53 Anything Goes
Stampin Sisters in Christ: #110 Anything Goes
Woodware USA: #47 Anything Goes
Okay, the vegan chili is burning!  Off to check again.  Have a great evening and thank you again!

Well, we are so lucky to have you blogging and sharing your beautiful creations, Amy! Guess it's a win/win for everybody. :)
Really adorable cards. Love that little mouse guy and his big apple. Great use of your themed paper scraps, too, and I adore the big ric rac. And what a fun tree card that is. Such an unusual and eye catching image. I think the sentiment you used with it is just perfect, and I adore the papers and color combo.
