House Mouse Monday Challenge #25

I tell myself I'm going to do a couple of challenges a week. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I don't, but I have good intentions. One of the challenge blogs I like a lot is the House Mouse Monday Challenge blog. They give you a sketch and all you have to do is use a HM stamp on the card. Sometimes they give away blog candy! Here is my take on this weeks sketch:
This stamp is called "Bear-ied in Paperwork". Reminds me of this specific time of the year - tax time! Oh, how I hate tax time. No, I don't do my own taxes. I just hate to get all the junk together for the tax guy, and I am not organized all year to keep it together. I'm busy being creative!
Ok, so there is a flower on this card. The original sketch has a bow tied there. You are free to change the sketch how you want - make it smaller, bigger, turn it upside down, sideways, etc., so I put a flower there. I cannot tie a nice bow to save my cards. Really. I even tie my shoes crooked. I didn't have a nice brown Prima flower, either, so I took a white one and colored it with my Copic marker. My card measures 5.5 x 5.5 and I colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Wonderful card. What a great image and you colored it brilliantly.

I think the flower works really well. I also can't tie bows. So sad.

Taxx is a four letter word around here lately.
