Love this little mouse, and in this card, the little stinker is running away with a Christmas light. I thought that it would be fun to make an interactive card and have Jolly the mouse actually be able to scurry across the card.
So this card was so much fun to make but turned into quite the challenge when I decided to make 50 of them, there were a few challenges along the way but I did get them all done and in the mail 🙂

Here are a few more pages from a baby book I had made for family friends. It is the fall and Halloween pages. I call it a growth chart book. I also give a Teddy bear with the book and for a year, every month and holiday the parents take a photo of baby with the bear and then they have a record of how much baby grew in their first year. Other pages can be found here https://mymessycraftroom.me/2018/08/31/monkey-fun/

So this little cutie actually dances in the waves, as you can see from the photo he moves from side to side (he has a pendulum type mechanism). This style of card is a little thick for mailing but he is sure to put a smile on someone’s face. To see a card with a similar mechanism check out “Snappy Birthday” from August 11/18.
this card is currently for sale.

For you cat lovers, here is a birthday card. What this post doesn’t show (I don’t have the ability to post video) is that the kitty is on a spring mechanism which makes him wiggle. It’s pretty cute if I do say so myself.

To mix things up today I thought I would post a scrapbook page, this was a page from a book that was a baby gift for a friend. I call them growth chart books, when the book is given it is given with a stuffed bear, the recipient is supposed to take a picture of the baby with the bear every month and place the picture on the labeled pages. When the year is up the baby will have a growth record in photos.

Hello, today I’m sharing a card that I made for my daughter to give a friend. It was a winter birthday so I chose to do a winter scene. When making this card I originally made the inside too big so the cat ears were visible when the card was closed, so I added the teal borders to make the card bigger, which in the end made the card a little brighter and better. It just goes to show that sometimes a mistake can turn a project into something better than it would have been if you just keep working on it and use your imagination.
