Mr. Mouse - Mouse

Mr. Mouse has travelled around the card to give a little girl a flower:) This is for my friend's daughter's birthday and she loves yellow and orange-just like her mom. I used the cuddlebug for the framing and it ends with a flower which I used magenta stickles to highlight the flower. I also used the cuddlebug to cut out the corners. I stamped Mr. Mouse and coloured him with tombow markers, cut him out and placed him on the edge waiting to give the little girl her flower. I used a paw stamp around the card since he is looking for the little girl. A happy little story

This a test

OK a test to see if this works

A To Z Challenge

I can't believe I am trying this!! I was deliberating for a long time and decided to jump in and I hope I can continue all the way through. Even though I make cards and have this as a craft blog I also love film and movies and film stars. When I was little I would watch old movies with my dad who knew all the stars. I would go through a list with him: Who is that? Are they alive? What did he/she die of? Were they married? To who? Why did they do that? What other movies were they in?  It would go on for a long time because all these stars are connected to each other in one way or another. There are some major stars I will not post and it is a shame but I am trying to stick to the letters of the alphabet and some stars share the same last initial (sorry Bogie). I am only dealing with the old stars...maybe next year will be different. So this is what I will be doing. Keep your fingers crossed that I can do this well.

How to write about the Oscars which i have been watching since I was a youngin:) I remember the streaker, the political hoopla with Vanessa Redgrave and all the bad outfits over the years. I wish for thos by-gone years because no one dresses wild any more(I miss Cher). I actually made up my own list and gave it to people to decide. Of course i had the best and worst dressed on there. I asked what your favourite moment was but then there is the good stuff. Nothing is better than a good ghoul who can bring back the nauseous feelings watching terrifying films and remembering the words "The Horror, The Horror", of course I am remarking on Kim Novak's Goldie Hawn's and Liza Minnelli's faces-EGAD!! What are they thinking??? Please, Liza-wear a bra!!! My eyes could hardly stand it. Also how does Liza know Lupita Nyongo so well that she hugs her with all her might when Luipta won the Oscar.  I also asked the question "what drug were they on?" Cue Harrison Ford and Jamie Foxx. I love Harrison Ford but wowzers i think he took some pain pills and downed them with scotch. Jamie seemed to be in "Que Passe" land.  I am not a fan of Gravity either-Great effects and better to see on a big screen than the TV but I was disappointed in it and am glad it did not win best picture. I can say that Star Wars should have won in 1977 but it didn't. Which film did? Right! I don;t know either unless I look it up.  The Day The Earth Stood Still is another great film that never received any recognition and should have. Now the biggest  WTF is for best make-up. Why wasn't the Hobbitt  up? They nominate Bad Grandpa but not the Hobbitt? Ughhhh. What were you pleased with? What did you hate? Did your TV break when it zoomed in on Goldie hawn or Kim Novak? Love to know:)
