Have a Mice Day!

Good Morning! This is the last day of Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks and I have a really great sentiment stamp set to share with you today. "Cute Quips", containing many cute sentiments will be releasing on February 1st and is so handy with so many other CDS stamps, as you see here. The mice, Marcy and Marvin, as well as the cheese slice, is from Clear Dollar Stamps and when I saw the sentiment, "Have a Mice Day", I just knew the mice and cheese were perfect for it. This card layout concept evolved from my finding the EK Success Swiss Cheese Border Punch on a recent Michael's trip! That sort of set the stage for an orange theme, so when I saw another great Martha Stewart designer paper pad, called "Playful Blues", I thought that it would be a great fit with the orange to create this whimsical flavor. Although, I have to say that after looking at the Swiss Cheese "holes", the dotted Martha Stewart designer background paper, and the paper piercing holes, not to mention the Pebbles polka dotted ribbon...I was thinking I'm about circle and dotted out! LOL And second card using "Cute Quips" is featured below.

I just love your eye for detail, Linda. The orange and turquoise thread, the pinking circles which remind me of swiss cheese holes - even the polka dots. Wonderful card!!

These mice and sentiment are just too cute! I like the combo of reversed scallops around the panel and the cheese punch on the side. I also really like the colors... that they are fun and pretty, but not too girly.
