Mos' Monthly Blog Hop!

Hi Friends!!! Thanks for all the love on my Magnolia card the other day AND for the couple of sweeties who gave me the title!! Much appreciated!!
Mo's (Mo's Digital Pencil) monthly Blog Hop is today and it was invented by Elaine who challenged us to use one of Mo's Digital images and be inspired by a Fairy Tale!! "Hmmmmm!", we all said, "What does she mean?" Weeelll, Mo does have some GREAT fairy tale images, but I went a different direction!
I looked through my images on the computer and decided this little mouse (Flossie) could be from the Disney version of Cinderella! Remember? They all help her get ready for the ball? Well, I think Flossie is celebrating the Wedding of the Prince and Cinderella with a fabulous cupcake!! Are you buying this? Hope so!
I think she is decked out for the party of parties! Here are the colors I used:
YG01 and yG25 for the cupcake paper
BG10 and BG15 for her dress
V000, V01, V06, V15 and V09 for the purples
I'm not sure about Flossie's fur but I think I used E42, E35 and E25
(I brought a little sticky note with colors in my suitcase all the way to Maine with me-didn't realize I was missing any! Oops!)
I used Bo bunny dp and lots of stickles to match the theme and colors.
(Alternate inspiration: There's a wonderful folktake called Flossie and the Fox which is a Red riding Hood type story. However, that's even more of a stretch because Flossie is a little girl who outsmarts a fox. The only thing she has in common with my mouse is her name!)
Okay, (as Mothermark would say), THAT'S MY STORY! Now, if it's your pleasure I hope you will head to DEBBIE'S BLOG! I just know she's done something wonderful!
Thanks so much for visiting!! I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll be back soon-like Saturday with another card.
Hugs, Cheryl
