House Mouse Monday Challenge (HMFMC146)...

Well after a long (much too long, if you ask me) sabbatical from craftiness, I'm trying to get back to it.  Many of you may know that my last day at Archiver's was about a month ago now.  It's been a whirlwind ever since.  I went on a fabulous long weekend vacation to Southwest Michigan with Heather and my mom...filled with wine and good food and photo ops for all ;)  The second I got back from that, I started my new job...for which I spent two weeks staying at Mom's house and training all over Chicagoland.  It was nice spending some extra time with Mom, but the commute two hours in each direction was NO fun at all.  The last almost two weeks I've been back in Des Moines at my new store.  It's been nice to be back at my apartment, but I can't say it hasn't been a challenge...there's a LOT of work to be done.  At any rate, Wednesday was supposed to be my first real day off that I could spend the whole day at home in a whole MONTH.  And then I had to go to work for a couple of hours.  So today is my first whole day off at home!  And I'm recommitting to working on my crafty stuff...for my sanity's sake, if nothing else.  Anyway, so after missing a number of challenges, I'm back to the House Mouse Monday Challenge (HMFMC146).  This week was Father's Day/Male Cards.  Anyway, here's my project:

Supplies Used: House Mouse "Olive A Party!" Wood Block Stamp, Memento Ink, Colored Pencils, Gamsol, October Afternoon Patterned Paper, Bazzill Cardstock, American Crafts Foam Dots

That's all for now...I've got some Project Life stuff and a Smashbook to get caught up on!  More craftiness soon!  :)
