Twinkling Mouseketeers!

Well, good morning and welcome to another Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday challenge!!

The challenge today is an inspiration challenge and we would love for you to join us by making a card based on today's inspiration (which you will LUV!!) and uploading it to
Splitcoaststampers or Papercraft Planet with the keyword MTTSC16!

I have a teeny romantic story to tell you at the end of this post about the card I made. Just to warn you ..... LOL!!

Here is our FUN inspiration this week!! Mickey and Minnie!! What better way to spend an evening than making cards with this inspiration!!

And here is my card based on Mickey and Minnie!

I used the Papertrey Ink Vellum on the card because of her little vellum-y skirt and of course the red satin bow had to be here. I really wanted to use the Swiss Dot red ribbon but then there were way too many polka dots!!

Everything product is from Papertrey Ink, from the stamp set, Heart Prints, to the Pure Poppy cardstock!

Okay, onto my teeny romantic story......

My husband actually seemed interested in this weeks challenge when he saw Mickey and Minnie Mouse on the computer.

He asked what I was doing and I told him that I needed to make a card with Mickey and Minnie as my inspiration. I actually ventured into the unknown area of asking hubby what he thought I should do.

He surprised me by being interested and asking me this question. "Okay, how long do you think Mickey and Minnie have been in love?"

I told him forever.

"Right, and they have always been best friends haven't they, so why don't you go that way with your card?"

Needless to say, I was very surprised at that, and could only nod....I think I was getting a little choked up!! I mean, he actually understood the inspiration, and he had such a brilliant idea...

So I raced downstairs and made my card, bursting full of love for my husband who obviously is so very supportive of my hobby!!

When I was finished, I ran upstairs and proudly showed him the romantic card I had made.

He tilted his head to one side and with a slight puzzled look he asked, "but where are Mickey and Minnie??"


Okay, let's hear the collective ahhhhhh groan.......I know he'll never "get" it and I am really okay with that but for a second there was a glimmer.......

Check out the rest of the Twinkling Tuesday gals creations (their links are on my side bar) and hopefully their posts aren't as sappy as mine!! LOL!
