Get Well, House-Mouse Card, Sue Wilson Craft Dies, and Blog Candy

Happy Saturday Crafty Peeps! 
Welcome back to my little blog. Hope your weekend is off to a great start.  Most of us Mommies are getting ready for our kids back to school now but Im taking a break to share a fun "Get-Well" House-Mouse card. This doesn't follow the "NO-Coloring" Challenge HMFMC176 theme that I'm hosting over at HMFMC, BUT,  it definitely falls into the "Anything Goes" category that we have as an alternate option. LOADS OF FANTASTIC PRIZES UP FOR GRABS!  So come join us!

I created this sparkly 'Get-Well' with loads of color to inspire those of you who still want to color your HMD images to enter our challenge.  There are amazing giveaways - but ... you must play. So hurry, the challenge ends at midnight, EST, tonight!! I will be choosing my 3 lucky winners tomorrow morning. Get all the challenge details, links and see the prizes at HMFMC.

 ******************************************************************
I was also inspired by today's SCS - Splitcoaststamers.com, Inspirational Challenge #IC455, Color-Watercolor. I loved this water-coloring of two deer facing one another that almost seem to be communicating! ha! I used an adorable friendly Mouse and Squirrel scene that reminded me of these deer, with an HMD stamp called; "The Quick Fix". Here's a link to my inspiration;
I love you to the moon and back. Typography print watercolor greeting card. Brown wall decor deer art from my original watercolor painting.
