There's a Mouse in the House

Hey, it's the long weekend. Didn't the summer go by quickly? Autumn is in the air, here in Sarnia. Yesterday I was in long sleeves, and turned off the air. The day before was so hot and humid the air conditioning had to be on. Gotta love Canada's weather. What long weekend plans do you have? I'm going on three weeks vacation and there will be no internet connection. Are you kidding? How will I cope with no computer. Augh! No blogging, no reading my 50 blog subscriptions, no contact with family, friends, or viewers of my blog. Please don't leave me. I'm so worried that I'll be left in the dust because I can't blog.
This House Mouse image was sent to me as a virtual swap over at the Stamp-Shack. The task was to make a card and post it in the gallery. It is so neat to see what other cards are created with the same images. So far, I'm the only one to add real crayons to the card. This is the first virtual swap that I really, really wanted the stamp. How fun to add crayons to the card. It's perfect as a thank you card for a teacher, don't you think?

Enjoy your long weekend. Safe travels to those who are travelling.

RAK from Maria

Look what I got from Maria. Isn't this card gorgeous? It is so, so pretty, and must have been hard to part with. I almost left it in the plastic envie, and I am so glad I didn't; look at the inside.
The verse says, "Thanks for touching my life with your special friendship! Maria and I have become friends through blogging, and it is a friendship I treasure because Maria is such a sweetie. Maria has challenges every Tuesday, and I like to participate in them. Maria has been nominated for best hobby blog, so if you visit her blog, please scan along the right bar and cast your vote.
