House Mouse Thanks

Well a busy day for me....I tried to finish off some Christmas ornaments that I had intended to get done this weekend but discovered that the ornaments I had were to I made a trip to JoAnn's and knocked out a couple other errands too. Then since I had to get a few groceries anyhow - I decided to get my Thanksgiving dinner groceried too and boy howdy, I think everyone had the same idea as me....
I almost never go to the commisary (military for grocery store) on the weekends and din't want to wait till next week but I guess everyone hads the same idea today. Then I get all the way to the car to remember that I forgot pie if figured I might as well get it over with and waded in for the second time..... I really needed my nap (pre-night shift work nap) for more than one reason today :).
Well todays project I made for the currrent challenge over at the House Mouse and Friends blog - which was to make a 'Thankful' project. Check out the challenge here -

Although I have never seen lilacs grown in these colors - we(when I was a kid) used to take some blooms and dry them and then spray them with watered down tempra that is how I decided to color these today :)

The stamp is of course a HM stamp and I colored it with prismacolor pencils. I cut the main image with a Spellbinders die using an out-of-the-box technique and layered it to another cut from the same die.

All for today - time to get some super and get off to work for the night.
Take Care

Tera, I love the lilacs done in those colors! My granddaughter tells me that teddy bears can be any color she chooses from the crayon box so I would say that applies to lilacs, as well. That's such an adorable stamp! Your card is marvelous. So glad you're playing in the challenge at House Mouse & Friends.
