Have a "Blooming Good" Day

Oh man, have you ever had one of those days? You know the one's where the day seems to be going by so slowly and then bam! Time speeds up into hyper drive. That seems to be what happened to me today. Got onto my computer tonight after dinner and started catching up with emails and downloading cards onto my facebook page and the next thing you know it's after 11 and I haven't gotten my posting done for Digistamps4Joy's New Release Sunday.

Margy has come up with some totally adorable images for this Sunday's Release and us lucky DT members were given 2 of them! We could make a card with one or both of them. Well my inspiration seems to have taken a walk about (I would love to go to Australia so I figure that my inspiration just went there without me) so I only managed to do one. I chose to make a card with the image "New Home" and omg it is just the sweetest thing. I started out with a sketch from Stampin Royalty
Then chose my color scheme from this weeks Tuesday Color Challenge at The Outlawz, picked by Ursula
And this is what I came up with
Now is that just not the sweetest little mouse peaking out from that ol' boot? I used up some dp from my stash (bits and pieces), Close to Cocoa cs from SU and Close to Cocoa ink to distress my image and sentiment. I colored the image with my Crayola pencil crayons and oms and added the flower and gem swirls (bought at my local dollar store). The edge punch is from Martha Stewart (sorry I don't know the name because I got it second hand) and I used another Martha Stewart border punch to make the leaves (just cut them off the stem). Added a bit of green Recollections stickles to the leaves and it was done :D

I hope that you will head on over to our Challenge Blog and check out the rest of the new releases and the fabulous creations that my team mates have made to inspire you.

Thanks for visiting ~ Charlene
