Make a wish

Though I am right in the middle of prime Christmas card making time I am shifting my mojo for the sake of my favorite doctor. Well, really it's for his family. He's deploying for 16 months. We'll have moved on by the time he gets back. I'm very sad. However, I thought the best gift to send with him was a collection of cards for him to have on hand to send back to his girls. This is the first of the birthday cards. I hope to get four birthday cards (one for his wife and each of their three daughters), a Christmas card, Anniversary card, and two anytime cards done in time for him to take. Wish me luck since there is also a teething baby in the house and a husband who isn't.

This card came about mostly because I saw the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday focusing on text. I remembered this big block stamp I bought from Purple Onion Designs awhile back. I love the stamp - all of them really - but had never gotten around to inking it up. Other ideas bopping around in my head involved this adorable mouse from Whiff of Joy and eventually the two came together.
