Fall House Mouse Coffee Crazy Card

                                He's flying through the air by being popped up with 3-D foam

Is anyone craving Pumpkin Spice Lattes?? Well, the Stampendous Coffee Crazy image was my choice for this challenge on House Mouse Fall Challenge #299 for that reason. And I decided to make it a distressed look. After choosing the BG Persimmon fall leaf paper, I used those colors for the coffee cup.

More Newton's Nook Falling into Autumn Cards

I know this sound rather morbid, but when I am facing hurricanes I sit and stamp and fussy cut while listening to the Weather Chanel. So my Newton's Nook stamp set Falling into Autumn stamps were already on my MISTI, and my Distress Oxides on my table, so I went into my "hurricane mode". Playing with how to blend the Oxides to make different fall colors was fun! I printed off the Words of Art Scripture verse for the August 28th challenge, and used the same CAS design I'd already used. Here they are:

Here's some fun Hurricane humor. Now you need to know that I am a Floridian and have gone through many hurricanes. Many of my family and myself have lost material goods from them but by the grace of God, have never been physically harmed nor died. After Hurricane Dorian came through, I realize that this is not as funny due to the huge mass of destruction to the Bahamas! We are sending our support to them in this aftermath and encourage you to as well. These funny GIFs and scripture are what I thought my friends here in Central Florida needed to focus on while awaiting the hurricane instead of fear and worry. That is the only reason why I posted them. To my followers as humor and not thoughtlessly to anyone that has been harmed from them. God bless and let us pray for the Bahamas' recovery and their government to restructure in Dorian's wake of disaster. :

We are all in prayer for all going through this horrible hurricane's wrath! Be safe so evacuate when officials say so. We have a long week ahead!

Hot Summer House Mouse Keeping it Cool

Super excited to be back on my blog with my art work and had to start with my fav' Stampendous House Mouse Umbrella Shade stamp (SKU #: HMCP47). I colored it up with my copics. I wanted to try some of what I learned with Sandy Allnook's lessons and decided that that I was going for him having water. Also added bit more rosy cheeks "from the sun!" I stamped summer images onto the envelope to match with the theme of my card to match up with the House Mouse Challenge #295.
