GKD Illustrator Blog Hop

I am so excited about the post tonight. It has been a thrill being Guest Designer for Gina K. Designs this past month and it really was a dream come true! I am so excited to see who the next Guest Designer will be....it could be YOU! (more info. on that at the end of this post...)

The inspiration for this card came from a favorite childhood book: Whose Mouse Are You by Robert Kraus. The book was obviously written in the 1970's so I used Pumpkin Spice, Moonlit Fog, and Smoky Slate cardstock as well as some Basic Grey Ambrosia patterned paper. The little mouse stamp from the Spring Mix Stamp TV Kit was fit my favorite childhood book perfectly and I love that he is holding a special sign for his mother :o) Ahhhhh...

I remember my parents reading Whose Mouse Are You? to me when I was very young. It is a delightful book that teaches the value of family...a real treat for any young child!

To keep the inspiration going, check out these GinaK Designer's joining in on the hop tonight:
Thanks so much for stopping by and can't wait to see what you create!
