Squeaking By

It's Tuesday already! Time is flying by. Work is ramping up again as I need to get ready to shed one job and move to another. So while there is still plenty to do in the old job and I have to document everything I can to help the next person in the job they have already started meetings for the new job and I have to start to learn the new materials for the next job. I have a feeling that I will be very busy for the next few months.
So I haven't felt much like creating this week when I come home from work but I needed to push myself tonight and get something done. So here's the card I came up with.

I thought the D'vine Swirls embossing folder reminded me of the Swiss cheese. Isn't this little mouse just the cutest! He's a Doodle Pantry image from a set called Quirky Mouse. The set comes with this colored image as well as the outline, several sentiments including the one I used and two background papers.
I am entering my card into these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a  wonderful Wednesday!
