This was created for the new challenge over at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog found HERE.  You might want to come check us out. There are tons of amazing inspirational pieces from the Designers and fabulous prizes up for grabs.  

It was my turn to choose the new Mousey challenge and I went with;
*Anything Goes with a special CUT*
Simply create anything using special cuts - like cuts made with your favorite cutting dies, or show off a special shaped cut, or use any HM&F image featuring CUTS. Really any type of a special cut will do..... even haircuts like my take....  heheheh 
This was just a fun 'thank you' card for our Hairstylist.  I didn't like the embossed BG with this image, so I covered it up with glitter glue and Diamond Dust.
