Mystery Revealed - May 2013-'s been a while folks!
I have sooo many cards created for swaps and other occasions and ready to upload to my blog yet....kind of a never ending task if you were to ask truly takes you for a spin....
that you'll never get it back....
Lots has been happening lately in my life .... I won't bore you with major details....suffice to say that I am recuperating now after having surgery last Wed. All went ok per se.......except post surgery problems that needed strict medical attention and kept me under the vigilant eye of a wonderful medical team.....because of that, I was kept in  Critical Recovery Area and not released until the day after....
Now I am taking it quite easy , as the wonderful prescribed 'cocktail mix' of steroids, penicillin and codeine have quite an effect on my poor 'ol bod'....dizziness being the major one of three... but hey...I am here...chillaxing and relaxing now...and that's all that matter. ♥

Let's get to the card....this cute image was sent by Melina, this month hostess for the mystery Image swap. Such cute, adorable lil mouse and I just knew how I wanted to display it...

You see.....a  few days ago I came across this lovely card on SCS :

I immediatley loved it and tucked it into my favorites...soooo simple yet so elegant and with flair too....I thought that the mouse could easily be well showcased as taking a lil stroll amongst a fiels of voila'....said and done...hence my take....♥

Depending on how the flowers were positioned ,Mousie takes either a right or left

Can someone please tell me what is the proper name of this tecnique please? (I used several markers to color each and every part of the rubber stamp to produce an individual background ...can't remember what's called...dang.) Love love loveee this particular SU stamp too! The sentiment...(see inside below) is also  from SU but I do not know its name...*sigh*
(old set of 8 funky sentiments from 1997)
  I hope you like my card interpretation for this swap....I know I really enjoyed creating it and getting the lil 'scene' I aimed for...
