Okay, so here I am trying to make good on my Stamped Designs' New Year's resolution and post on the blog at least 2-3 times/week!  This is a little "look ahead" to the upcoming House Mouse Happy Days class in a couple weeks.  I am very excited to see Stampendous take over this line and start producing the images in a smaller size, which allows us to use them in a variety of ways.  Today's card features Maxwell jumping for joy on a birthday cupcake!  I did a little paper piecing with the cupcake wrapper - using a fancy paper that worked well for a cupcake wrapper.  Then, after coloring the rest of the image with watercolor pencils and a blender pen, I added a dot ribbon across the bottom of the cupcake, then punched the words out in a circle and attached that with foam tape.  The fancy paper that makes up the background is from Darcie's.  Because this is a white-backed cardstock, you can either cut the entire base card out of the patterned cardstock, or cut a quarter sheet and layer it over a solid color card.  This is a pretty quick card to make and is good for everyone!  A nice one to have in your stash when you need a card in a hurry!

The January dates we are offering the "House Mouse Happy Days" class where you will make this card along with 2 others is January 17, 20, 22 and 25.  There will also be a few dates in February, as well.  So, if you're looking to add to your on-hand card stash, come out for a class!
