Morning all

My card for you for today is for the midway reminder of the * Back to School/Office * challenge over at 
You have just 1 week left to get your creation in to win 1 of these fab prizes

One lucky winner will get a $25 Gift Certificate to shop at the official House-Mouse Designs store

A Second Prize
In addition, America is giving away this new, unused, hard-to-find, Design of the Month House-Mouse Stamp from April 1999, called "Computer Tutors", and featuring Monica, Maxwell and Mudpie...  This fun prize will go out to a second lucky player.
My GDT card is a Joanna Sheen Gruffies image not decoupaged this time i thought i would just use the base layer and added ribbon and pearls Oh and of course a butterfly :), i decided not to add a sentiment as i'm not sure what i will use the card for as it could be used for a good luck in your new job or a leaving your job or just a happy birthday it could be for many things.
