Zodiac Sign Connection House Mouse Challenge (HMFMC #211)

I have a hard time believing that I haven't posted to my blog since March of 2015, but that's what it says!!!
I must find the time to post more often. I DO binge post when I finally post. This session will be no exception.
I thought I lost my MOJO yesterday when no ideas were coming to me AT ALL!
So I made the commitment to check the challenges to see if they could jump start me.

The first is:

 Obviously my choice was Leo for July. This was because my husband is a Leo.
I used to love creating scenes on my cards but have made mostly art type images for my fronts lately.
This card goes back to my basics. 
I stamped the mouse (House Mouse Designs) and masked him, then I stamped the Lion (Stamps by Judith) and masked him. Finally I stamped the postage stamp frame (Third Stone Stamps formerly known as Third Coast Rubber Stamps) and made a mask for the opening.
I laid all the masks down and used my Distress inks to sponge the background of the "stamp".
I used colored pencils for the rest.
The saying is from a set by Taylored Expressions.

This truly in a perfect day for stamping and blogging here in Western New York. The snow is blowing and the wind chill is 0!

I hope to get more challenges done over the next few days. If you have lost your MOJO or just what to try something new...

Try a challenge!
