Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! We have a brand new challenge over at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and we'd love you to join us. You can make a card using the "Rain of Shine" theme or you can choose "Anything Goes" as your theme to use with your House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, or Gruffies Stamps, CD Images, or Decoupage Sheets by House-Mouse Designs®.

Here's my card using the "Make A Wish 02" House-Mouse Designs® stamp and the Splitcoast Stampers Pleated Skirt Fold Tutorial (with a few moderations to accommodate a larger card base).

In case you're interested in my modifications, my decorative paper was 11"x3" scored at 3", 3 1/2", 5", 5 1/2", 7", 7 1/2", 9", 9 1/2" and my card base was 5 1/2" Square. All of the other instructions were the same.

Card Stock: Recollections
Background Paper: Present from a sweet friend in Guam, Gingham from stash
Images: House-Mouse Designs "Make A Wish 02" and Hero Arts "Seize the Cupcake"

A birthday card just for me. :) Actually I believe it is for your mom. No I have not forgotten you or that you told me we shared a birthday. I have been looking at your blog as it posts. I just have not felt well the last few months so commenting went to the wayside. I guess one day I will wake up and realize I am not hurting. I love your cute cards. Those House Mouse cards always make me smile. I hope you have a good day. Edwina Brown

Thanks so much, Heather! I had a visit from a sweet friend in Guam and she gave me that decorative paper. When I saw the technique, I just knew I had to use that paper with it. ~ Snoopy :D

Thanks, Diane! It's very easy to do and is a great way to use those double sided cardstock pieces without having to pick a side. ~ Snoopy :D

This is my kind of birthday - cake, sparkles, glitter and just one candle will do. No need to annouce one's age to the world, right?! The paper pleating is a lovely touch. Fab card, Snoopy.
