House Mouse Monday Challenge: Thanks

This weeks House Mouse Monday Challenge was a sketch from 2 Red Bananas (see last photo for sketch). It was very circle-y...which I like, cuz I have THE PERFECT stamp, Donut Bliss...doesn't a donut just SPEAK circle? LOL... Anyway, I used my favorite dp to go with my little donut blissed mouse, Sweet Tooth by Creative Imaginations. I decided instead of layering my circles, that I would pop a circle frame off of my card instead, to give it a little dimension, then I ran my ribbon behind the frame and added my sad little bow on top...truly that's what took the longest is my sad, little bow...I tied and retied and tied again, and just dealt with what I ended up with...LOL... I added a little Thanks tag (I can NEVER have enough thank you cards around!) and added 3 eyelets (dusted them babies off...LOL) to the upper right. I also added some dimensional glaze to the donut (see second picture, it shows up there). Ok, now this has made me hungry, so I'm gonna go have some breakfast...recipe and sketch below...enjoy!
