Make a wish

It's Monday and that means it is time for a new House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog challenge!  The new challenge theme is "Make a Wish!"  I decided it would be fun to use this House Mouse stamp titled "slow pokes."  But more about the new challenge in just a moment. 

What a fabulous turnout we've had for the first House Mouse and Friends blog hop for 2012!  The submissions have exceptionally wonderful and everyone who's visited my blog and left a comment are in the draw for this fun blog candy:
So without further delay, I used random number thingy and it drew Erin's number.  Erin, who's blog and entry is posted at her site Blu Birdie of Happiness is the winner of my blog candy.  Erin, please email me with your mailing address as soon as possible and I'll mail your candy off to you.  Congratulations!

And now for the new theme challenge: Make a wish. Use any House Mouse and Friends stamp (House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hopper) and create a card around the "wish" theme.

These are the details for my card:
