Evil Mother?


Am I an evil Mother??  Tomorrow my oldest turns 25 - what???  Anyway, he LOVES puzzles.  Hehe - see the evil laugh comes here.  I just had to print this hot air balloon out on this patterned paper just to drive him crazy.  I think he will find it funny but won't be able to put it down until it is figured out.  This wonder hot air balloon puzzle is from Doodle Pantry.  It is part of a set called Iowa Mini Mazes.  The sentiment is also from Doodle Pantry, it is from a set called Celebrations Sentiments.  Laurie has several states already and since we are from Iowa this is perfect in more ways than one.  We have been to many balloon races as a family and that alone brings back a lot of good memories.  This is one of the new sets this month.  I can't wait to see his face when he opens this card.  Another evil laugh - hehe

Crocheting Mouse


Happy Sunday!  Well, this is the only kind of mice I even come close to liking.  This little cutie is from 2 Cute Ink.  She is part of a stamp called Crocheting Friends.  The stamp has two mice facing each other.  I cropped out one of the mice and only printed the one.  I just love the inside of her ear. All the images from 2 Cute Ink can be purchased through Heidi's Etsy store or you can join her club and receive them every month.  Check it out. Also, right now we have an "anything goes" challenge going on at the 2 Cute Ink challenge.  A great way to win a free 2 Cute Ink image!  I hope you get some crafting time today.
