Par-Tee Animal

This week the challenge at Phindy's Friday Challenge Blog is called WHAT'S COOKING. We want you to create cards or other paper-crafted projects that feature food or drink.

You don't have to use a Phindy's image this week but if you do just follow the instructions on the sidebar and enter a second time.  Phindy has lots of great images in her store so if you don't have any I encourage you to go there immediately and pick up a few. 

I made a simple card this week but one with a fabulous image. Cocktails are so popular and it looks like even this little mouse is into the action - in a big way.  This looks like much more fun than running on a wheel for entertainment.  Personally, the adult beverages that make me a happy camper are a nice glass of red wine or better still a really good single malt scotch (on the rocks). 

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Try It On Tuesday - Pampered Pets
Bunny Zoe's Crafts  - Ribbon or Twine
Critter Sketch - Critters
Digi Makeover - Bright Colours
There She Goes - Ribbon Time
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
Papercraft Star - Umbrellas
