Now this little mouse knows how to live the summer life -- he's enjoying the garden and the sunshine at the same time:

  4. Hi Jessica~

    This is my first visit to your blog. I had to come by and leave a comment when I saw this wonderful card! I live in FL, that would really be the way to get a tan. My sister's fenced backyard is full of sunflowers...she just loves them. There is just enough room for a chair for her to be out in the sun to build her tan. This would be her preference, I am sure!

    You did a fabulous job with the coloring. Your shading and highlights add so much to the card...and I love that shade of blue paper in the background! So vibrant!

  5. Hello again, Jessica~

    You don't need to print this, in fact, please don't. Could you please let me know how I can email you privately? Are you a member at SplitCoast? I could leave the message for you there if you are.

    Here is my home email.


    If you reach me there, I could hit reply. Most of the members of MMSC know me, and know I am not dangerous. A little crazy...but not dangerous! LOL

    I love your blog! I looked at the bookmark section also. Do you mind if I case the design of the bookmark? Thanks so much for letting me know. There is more I want to ask you...about today's card. Thanks so much!
