HMF #127 Back to school or work

This is the mid week post for House Mouse and Friends Blog challenge #127 . Our challenge is back to school or work. Our Sponsor this week is House-Mouse Designs with A $25 giftcard for the lucky winner. Be sure to link your creations back on the House Mouse and Friends Blog.

Haven't inked this house mouse up in a while, its called ABCD EEEEK. This stamp is from 1997, yep that is an older one for me. I stamped the image out onto classic white cardstock using memento tuxedo black ink. Colored with copic markers then popped up the panel with dimensionals. The bottom design is created using CDS My Little School bus. Then I grabbed some iced lime ribbon and tied off a bow. These guys are just so cute and don't need a lot and since time is short that is perfect right now. ha!
I have some exciting news.... I get my braces off tomorrow! WOOT WOOT!!! That's right it has been 2 years, even know they told me only 18 months. I have had to wear them for 2 years. I am so thrilled to get them off. Infact I have not had a peanut buster parfait from DQ in 2 years, do you know where I am going after they are off? Yep DQ with my sister as she said she will celebrate my braces freedom with me. hee hee So here is to a wonderful day tomorrow and today.
