Blueberry Tarts

     Here's a little card that started on a long drive to Texas.  Last year, my second daughter, who is studying equine sciences in college, had a internship at a prestigious barn in Texas.  It was and is a long, long, drive.  During that drive, I colored a folder full of different images including this darling little mouse.  In fact, I colored several the same so that I could layer them.  I looooove to layer my cards, something about fussy cutting just soothes the soul.  OK, probably TMI, but after all this is a blog so I get to add random useless information.

     This little mouse reminds me of tea parties and wonderful little fruit tarts.  It also reminds me of summertime, I once went to Michigan and picked blue berries with friends during a 4-H summer excursion.  Imagine my surprise when I found out blue berries did not grow on trees like cherries.  It was actually the first time I had even tasted blue berries - yum, hooked for life.  OK so I digressed again.

     I found these wonderful blue design papers in my stash - who knew?  They worked perfectly with the colors of the blue berries and I think white and blue have to be one of my all time color combination fav's.  I also happen to love, as in these are my two most favoritest embossing folders - the Dotted Swiss and Swirls folders from Provocraft for Cuttlebug (another favorite tool).

     Wow, today was full of lots of random favoritness.  So, they may be a quiz later - just kidding.  Thanks for hanging in there this long.

      Oh by the way, this card  was created fir  the House Mouse Monday Challenge Here
