A Mouse! In my House!

HMFMC #113
Yesterday I pulled out my toys and made this card for the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  The theme is Make Wishes Come True and you were to make a project that fits that theme and of course, uses a House Mouse or one their friends (those rabbits or bears).  I had a lot of fun making this card.  If it were me, my wish would be for some guacamole to go with those jalepinos!
HMFM #113 Make Wishes Come True
With that, I thought my mojo was back.  I was a little bummed that I couldn't use one of my brand spanking new House Mouse stamps for this challenge.  That was okay because Saturday was a new day and we can play with the new stamps then!  After all, my mojo was back!

What a lying, sneaking, no-goodnik that mojo is.  It snuck off again in the night leaving me making these sad and dreary cards with my new stamps.  Okay, maybe they aren't horrible, but they are just aren't doing it for me.

Soemone needs to hide the dark papers from me and see what kinds of bright and cheerful things I can make. Surely that mojo of mine couldn't have snuck off too far!

The Fine Print: Jalepino stamp by Stampa Rosa, Birthday wishes circle by DeNami Designs, candle by Stampin' Up, 1" circle punch by EK Success, larger circle by Marvy, mid-size scallop circle by Stampin' Up, larger scallop circle by Marvy, card base by We R Memory Keepers "Urban Window."  Mending stamp by Stampabilities, papers by DCWV "Tradewinds", 1" circle punch by EK Sucess, ribbon by A Muse Studio.  Read stamp by Stampabilities, papers by Paper Stuido, stickers by Stick-O.

you definately have a brown thing going on don't you. LOve the first card best, the bright colours compliment the mouse brown and lift it!.
The second mouse looks a bit sad, maybe you should liven the background colour up a bit next time. Very cute all the same
