Sketches By Carly Using "It's Your Day" Stamp Set, Cricut Art Philosophy and Cricut Artiste

Hi to my fellow crafters.  It's time for another Sketches By Carly.  I love Carly's sketches and love having a new one every two weeks.  If you haven't joined in the fun; there are lots of fantastic prizes every two weeks.  We are sponsored this week by Sweet N Sassy stamps.  I love this cute little mouse image.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.  This card is for my grandson who will be 17 yrs old.  I tried to make it fun and not childish. 

I wanted to create a card using the new "It's Your Day" Double "D" stamp set that is now available for only $5 with a $35 purchase.  (Retail $35.90)  It is 2 "D" stamp sets and is fabulous!!  There are so many things you can do with this stamp set.  Click here for the video using this stamp set and the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge to create the inside of this card.  Click her for a CTMH video using this stamp set for scrapbooking layouts. 

I pictured this little mouse on an adventure through the pumpkin patch and through life; so I used that theme to create this birthday card.  The image is "Cocoa's Pumpkin" from Sweet N Sassy Stamps.  I hope you enjoy my card.
