Unidentified Image Swap - August

I hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to a great weekend!   It is our posting date for the Unidentified Image Swap on SCS.  

Janet, was our hostess this past round.   She gifted us with the image of Take Time to Smell the Flowers from House Mouse.    I have seen several House Mouse images in the Gallery at SCS, but have not worked with one.   They are very cute indeed!

As previously complained about written, I have been working on using what supplies I have, using scraps, making due with all the supplies I seem to have in abundance.   I am finding that this adds yet another element to the challenge(s) at hand! 

In doing this, it has posed some questions for me.   For instance, where on earth did I get such a big pack of Stampin' UP! Mint Melody card stock?!  Why do I have all these DP's and none seem to be 'just right'?   Could this scrap be just a little bit longer?   Why is there not an embellie the right color for this card?   I think you get the idea!   I do have to say with the added challenges, it does seem to feel good in using what I have.  Give it a try!

So in moving on with my own personal challenge for this swap, my card has Stampin' UP! Mint Melody card stock, scrap DP {thanks, Judy}, scrap card stock and seemingly to me the wrong color embellies!   LOL   I hope it all worked out okay for the swap.   I even dug out my Stampin' UP! markers and chalks {insert pat on girl's back}.   Here is my card for this round.....


Thanks, for stopping by.  I hope you have a good day!!!

Wow! Mint Melody? Is that an old color? I love the combination you used, though. Great card.
