Happy, Happy, Happy!

Today I can officially announce that I am on the design team for Bizzy Becs & I think this little mouse perfectly describes how I feel about it.  If you don’t already know about it, Bizzy Becs is a fabulous online store where you can purchase all those little bits of supplies we have to have.  She also has monthly challenges on the Bizzy Becs Blog & there is a huge Welcome  blog candy package to be won.

The theme for this challenge is Cute & Sweet.  The winner will receive a $25 gift voucher plus two loyal customers will also receive a surprise.

This little guy is one of Stampabilities House Mouse & is called Oh! Happy Day & I think he is just the funniest... makes me smile when I look at him! Funny thing... I used to think those House Mouse stamps were so creepy but they've really grown on me & I find a lot of them really sweet now.

The sentiment is from Stampin Up's Happy Everything set. The ribbon is also Stampin Up. I coloured the little creature with Copics & then lightly rubbed Tim Holtz's Antique Linen around him. The embossing is with one of the Cuttlebug strips.

I've entered my card in the following challenges:
