Crazy For Cheese or Crazy For Challenges!



Hello My Friends and thank you for stopping by! Today I have a card to show  that I made for a new blog called Crazy4Challenges. It is fantastic group of very talented ladies that each week gives us so much inspiration and reasons to create. I hope I am not to late to participate in this week’s sketch challenge hosted by amazing Cindy Haffner!

Long time ago I wanted to make a card that will represent a place where I live. As you may know cheese is pretty famous here in Wisconsin. We live next to a big factory that produces different kind of cheeses; of course there are lots of small farms and stores around our area too. That is why I chose this adorable mouse riding a cheese boat (Gina K. Designs stamp set)! Just by looking at the experession of this little mouse I can tell for sure that there are so many adventures on the way and he will always find a way and the right decision!

When I was working on this card I remembered a story from my childhood. Being a kid I was always wondering why cheese has holes in it? Did you ever ask the same question?…  One day somebody told me that a mouse tried to eat it, didn’t finish it all and left some holes. And from that day I was always so scary and curious at the same time – what if a mouse is still in the cheese? Of course later on I understood that it was not true and I can eat cheese without any problems and don’t worry about mice bites! 😉

I think that is all for now… Thank you so much for leaving me your kind comments! Hope you will all have a great weekend! And may your days be filled with lots of fun and joy!

    What a cute card. That mouse on the cheese boat is just adorable! Love the DP you used (it does remind me of holes in cheese) and your coloring is wonderful. – I LOVE CHEESE (and it shows)…Wow you live near a cheese factory (does it stink?) Ever take a tour there. We visited a cheese factory in Tillamook, OR (a famous brand out here) and it sort of smells but oh the cheese is yummy.
