Want a Mouse-Cake?

Hiya my friends!  Just a short note from me today….if you follow me on Facebook you know the drama story that has happened this week in my house.  And because of that its caused my health issues to flare up a bit so I’m trying to take it easy the next couple of days so I can get back to my regularly scheduled programing and work LOL. 

I am off to watch my son’s scrimmage against a rival HS in football today…he has back-to-back scrimmages so we will see how long my body can sustain sitting on metal bleachers.  He said when I dropped him off at school for practice today “well I guess since you don’t feel well you won’t be yelling loud like usual right?’….and I said “UM NOPE, sorry unless my voice is taken I’m gonna use it!” LMBO!  I am a total whooper yellin’ momma from the bleachers and I could care less, I want Riley and his friends to know we are there supporting them KWIM!

I’ll leave you with a funny today cuz I know I needed this laugh (see pic below)… youngest Cairn Terrier Baylee has been a sock thief since she was a puppy.  So the pile below I found under my bed along with an odd assortment of slippers, tissue and cotton balls.  She was in the room when I discovered it and she slowwwwwwly backed out of the room like “uh-oh momma has found my stash and I’m in trouble” hahahahaha..she was so cute!  But I NOW KNOW where all those mates to my socks have gone and here I was blaming the dryer all this time LOL!


-New Mixed Media Classes including fun project classes are up now at CMC Classroom taught by Marti Wills.  If you have been curious about Mixed Media and how to use it and incorporate it into your work…you need to go check out her classes ok, they are fab!

A Mouse-Cake!!

This cutie is my card for the current TouchTwin Challenge which is to use something with FOOD and SHADING…you can find details HERE and you could win 12 markers!!  So go play along if you can, its an awesome prize!

I'm entering this into the following challenges as well:

SFYTT Challenge (see blurb below)

I used this cute Whipper Snapper stamp and colored with my TouchTwin markers.  The paper is NEW from MME 6x6 Designs “Life of the Party”…(10% off now too) - I loved the fun combo of colors and patterns.  I used the sketch from the Aug SFYTT Challenge which I loved cuz it uses lots of layers…my fave Smile  The sentiment is from PTI along with the buttons and ribbon.  I distressed my papers with my fave Zutter Distress tool which makes the job much easier! I accented with my White Sharpie Poster Paint pen and stickles for fun sparkle.  To make my buttons sparkly I coated them with Stickles too…you can never have enough stickles in my opinion!

Have a great rest of the week ok!


  1. Love the card, Suzanne--fab coloring, of course! Love the papers and colors you used! :^)
    And the photo and story about Baylee just cracked me up! Our pets are just so silly sometimes!
    Hope you feel great really soon! :^)

  2. I am not on facebook, so I don't know what your drama was, but I hope you feel better very soon. So funny what Baylee did with the socks. What a busy dog!!

  3. Suzanne,

    Your coloring is divine!!! :) I better go and check out your classes! I bought Copics back in November and I have yet to use them-yikes.

    Enjoy your son's scrimmage & thank you so much for sharing,

  4. That's not a mouse cake! A mouse cake is one that Craig baked for me & left on the stove to cool overnight. The next morning I'm horrified to see a bunch of the golden crust missing, so I think I didn't notice it the night before & he got it stuck in the pan! Then I realized something had been eating it!!! You guessed it...mouse!

    Craig wanted me to just cut off that part & still ice it for the baby shower! Of course I said that I couldn't give a "mouse cake" to my co-workers.

  5. What a fun, cute card, Suzanne. This is an adorable image and colored so sweetly. It looks so yummy it could pop off the page.
