I hope everyone had a great Easter. I had a migraine that wouldn't quite go away so I slept most of the morning and into the early afternoon. We were on our own this year, but I still wanted a dinner so my husband offered to cook lunch on his own. I was pretty proud of him, and other than a little help with the deviled eggs, he did it all. Before my Grandmother passed away we always had a big family dinner for Easer. It makes me feel connected to her by continuing that tradition--even if it is just the two of us. Kip knows that so he made sure I had my dinner. He's pretty cool, I am going to keep him!

House Mouse Coffee
Good evening! I just love these House Mouse images and I have always preferred coloring them with Prismacolor pencils more than with Copics. I know, big shock, right? Someone (sorry, don't remember who) suggested going a little bit lighter with the marker colors than I would normally have picked. I tried that and I was very happy with the results. I still like coloring these with my pencils, but now I like the look with the Copics too. I got this image from Scrapbook Store at Your Door. Julie has a wonderful selection of HM images and she ships quick, and has great service. The only place I can get these locally is Hobby Lobby and they just don't get new ones very often. All the supplies on this card came from my stash. I think the papers are DCWV, but the ribbon is American Crafts and the brads are Making Memories.
