House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #211-"Zodiac Sign Connection"

Well happy Monday to you all dear blogging friends!!

And how was everyone's weekend?

We had a busy weekend here...out for dinner both Friday (and the hockey game as well) and Saturday much for trying to watch the!!!  Although I did make healthy choices AND no dessert!

Okay onto the task at hand!  Today we begin a fascinating new challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!!  Our fabulously talented Heather is our hostess for the next two weeks and she has chosen "Zodiac Sign Connection" as her intriguing with endless possibilities...wait till you see what my talented Mousey Sisters has in store for you!!  As always you have the "Anything Goes" option.

So starting this month we have a parade of birthdays in our family...starting with my youngest Son Nicholas...who just had his birthday on January 12th...therefore he's a Capricorn!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I went with a simple 6X6 card...
printed out some Zodiac animals from the internet onto cardstock...

I think this image is so fitting for BDay's called ""Pop" -ular Fun" HMUR1024...
coloured with my copics...
balloons highlighted with Glossy Accents...
birthday sentiment is LOTV...
the inside...
the DP is so old...from my stash...and...well...was simply "perfect" for my Nicholas'
I cut out the individual Zodiac signs and found them too plain so I added Frantage of course...just a sprinkle...then added the larger Capricorn sign in the middle...
And there you have my "Zodiac Sign Connection" card...just wait till you see the way my Mousey Sisters interpreted this theme!!
All materials listed above.
Now come on over and join in the Zodiac fun...or "Anything Goes" for a chance to win a fabulous prize from our sponsor...

Winner will receive a Fabulous $20 Value Reward Card
