The current challenge at House Mouse and Friends is "Anything Goes!" I think "Anything Goes" challenges are even harder than regular challenges. Sometimes, I need a theme to help me choose which House Mouse stamp gets inky--otherwise my indecisiveness, coupled with my love for House Mouse stamps, means I'll ink them ALL UP! You think I'm kidding, but I have 6 House Mouse cards in various stages of completion on my desk right now. EEK!
In this card I've used the stamp "Sweet Sensations." Cute right? Now, I need more jelly bean puns. I snagged the "How've you bean?" sentiment stamp from a coffee/tea set. Unfortunately, I simply cannot think of any others. My Husband's only contribution was, "Bean nice knowing you." I told him it sounded like a card for someone who's dying.
On a whim I decided to cover the entire candy dish with a layer of glossy accents--a decision I should have considered a little more carefully. The glossy accents leached some of the color from the red jelly beans, and caused some of the other colors to run. Somehow it even managed to absorb the spica glitter pen I used on the jelly beans?! Oh, well. Lesson learned.
Thanks for looking! Come back soon, and maybe you'll see one of the other cards I created for this challenge...LOL.
