Less is More with Fur

Over the weekend I stamped with my friends in Roanoke Rapids.  Our group has been stamping together for almost five years now and I always look forward to going even though it's a 2 hour drive.  I have to admit that I enjoy the time to listen to a book and be by myself for a while.  

Nell brought two new House Mouse stamps with her.  She has a whole box of these delightful stamps and we've had House Mouse Saturdays more than once.

When I saw the Less is More challenge that morning was

and this time the subject of your creations should feature

I wasn't sure what I was going to do.  I had some bird stamps but nothing that I thought I'd want to do on a one layer card.

Well, Nell took care of that in good form.

Here's another.

I hadn't done Halloween cards before last year, but with a Preschooler around, Halloween cards are great for the teachers.  

And for Mom to put on the shelf to remind him of Trick or Treat time.

I may just have to put one of these on my shelf!  These little guys always make me smile. And smiles are good.

I'm also entering the House-Mouse and Friends challenge which this week is Double Trouble. Thanks Kate for leading me to that challenge.

And the Lawnscaping Challenge this week is to do a One Layer Card.

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps: Wacky Wishes (c.2), Holiday Best (c.1, retired), Lil' Punkin (c.2), Sweet Find (c.1) (House Mouse Designs)
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn, SU Markers (Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant)
Paper:  Whisper White

And the mistake on yesterday's card...If  you look closely at the ornaments, the green one doesn't have any white space around it.  It's a little narrower than it should be.

Thanks for the comments and the visits. Ya'll come back soon.

Such sweet mice!! They made me smile!! I still can't believe how much you and I have in common - I love listening to audiobooks in the car too. I'm heading down to Seattle on the weekend (about a 3 hour drive depending on the border) and I need to go to the library and get a couple of good audiobooks for the trip!
