Keep Up Your Strength

What a fun, useful House Mouse image Weight Lifter.  This one is not from the HM Triple CD set.  I'm thinking of cards for friends and family who love to "work out" and are dieting.  In this card, I'm going in a completely different direction...cards for illness.  I'm still working on cards for a relative who is going through breast cancer treatment which is why I added the extra pink weights in bottom corner.

If you look closely, the barbell Mudpie is holding is a Q-Tip....haha  (My pics came out a little dark.) I'm joining the House Mouse #230 Challenge with Anything Goes, but hope to add a card with the color challenge in a few days.

A2, cut out extra barbells and used pop-ups for dimension

copics for coloring
silver pen for life saver paper
free weights silhouette I made into an svg

  2. Oh! Cely, this is absolutely delightful, I love the mouse and the Q tip bar bells, what a "pick up" card.
