Mouse, mouse, mouse!! This is what greets me every morning when little Miss Shelby walks through my door for daycare. We have begun a ritual of snuggling on the couch with a big blanket and watching Mickey Mouse Club House until the rest of her friends arrive and we have breakfast. She even hands me the remote to turn on the TV and our new favorite show. So what kind of card do you make the most adorable two year old ever for her birthday? Well, mouse, mouse, mouse of course.

Minnie Mouse was cut at 4 " from the Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge. Is it just me or are these characters ridiculous to put together at this size? Minnie almost ended up with no mouth or eyes. I swear the only way to work with the character cuts are on a LARGE scale. That means gigantic birthday cards though and where does a gal find envelopes to fit a birthday card with a 12 " Minnie on it?

Just how hilarious is this image?!? The minute I saw this over at Whimsie Doodles I new I had to have it and knew exactly what I was going to do with it. I think it makes the perfect wine bottle hanger for a host/hostess gift. Don't you?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Turkey Day and enjoyed plenty of "basting"...LOL!

Happy Monday everyone. Just stopping by to make a quick post with a birthday card I completed last week. I swear my "to do" lists are spiraling out of control between all of the birthdays and the holidays coming up. I am in awe of those that make blog posts daily of their projects. How do you do it? Please let me in on your secret. :)

I received this image from a image swap last year. It's a Penny Black image from the Critter Party set. Hope everyone has a great week. I am currently working on 20 Christmas Party invites and am hoping to finish them up this week to share with you all.
