Good Monday morning dear blogging friends!!

I'm back with a reminder for all our Mousey friends...we're halfway through our "Make it Masculine" challenge hosted by our most wonderful Pauline...who is offering a fabulous prize to one lucky winner!!!  We also have our "Anything Goes" option!! We have two fabulous sponsors House Mouse Designs and Stampendous...details can be found on our House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog and that's also where we want you go to link up all your wonderful Mousey creations!!!

So rolling right along...inspired by Pauline's theme...I have another birthday card for one of my Sons!!  All three of my boys have their birthdays in the beginning part of the year so I have taken this opportunity to make them their cards...for once I am a bit ahead of the!!

Here is my oldest Son Derek's card...

Derek loves to stay fit and works out every day so I thought this image was perfect for him...
design paper is My Mind's Eye...
 this is "Muscle Mouse" HMJR1018...
coloured with my Prismas...
I added Glossy accents to the lifesaver candies and the writing...
a little hard to see in this pic...
 this sweet little girl jumping in to check everything out is "Monica Lands" HMER1005...

 birthday sentiment is LOTV Set #58 "Pretty Grungy-Good Times"...
I made this using a technique that I found on the AMAZING Pamellia's blog...
Pamellia's blog is called "My Little Craft Things" and you really should check out this talented lady's blog!!!...

    We aren't supposed to get much snow, storm is along the eastern coast and into the New England states, and sounds like it could be bad. Take care, and stay warm.
