Muscle Mouse (and kids)

The inspiration for this card came from my kids (age 7 & 5). 2 evenings ago the kids were busy and quiet for a long time - suspicious. So I went to check what are they up to. And this is what they were making - a plan/schedule for their healthy lifestyle. I had to work really hard on not laughing :) The funniest part was about eating ice cream once a month - LOL! And that came from my DD who asks for ice cream 3 times a day. Guess how long did the plan last? Till about lunch time of the next day. The exercising lasted a bit longer and seeing their efforts this House Mouse came to my mind.
It's called Muscle Mouse and it looks a lot like my 5 yo DS when he says he has big muscles :)Now onto the card - the image is colored with Prisma pencils and I added some stickles on the candy. The CS is from Bazzill Smoothies and DP is from Basic Gray Urban Prairie.
I used a sketch from Midnight Madness and I'm also entering this card into Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - colors of my favorite ice cream (I love all the fruity sherbets - raspberry, mango, lime - so I used all the colors)

This card is fantastic, I LOVE it! Wow! All those fab colors are perfect! Great story about the kiddos too - at least they have the right idea!!! Now really though, can anybody go a whole month without eating ice cream in the summer!?!?

Oh my, that is so cute! You should scrapbook this and show it to them when they are grown up (which is sounds like they are now LOL!).

Cute card too, Alica :-)

Take care,
