House Mouse Swap

Here is a card I made for a swap. Actually, I made 6 of them. Do you ever buy things from the dollar bin at Michael's? Well I bought some packages of cards that were marked down to 25 cents for 8 or 10 cards with envelopes. So I used the cards for my patterned paper. I punched the glittered cherries from the purchased cards, with my circle punch, and placed them on a scalloped circle. I love cherries and red white and blue themed cards. I used to have my kitchen decorated with a 50's style formica table, white cabinets, and red cherry accents. My casual dinnerware even has cherries on them. I think you get the picture. So when I saw those cards, I just had to have them. Enough of my rambling. Have a great weekend!
