Good Things Come in Threes

I get to celebrate this great tribute weekend with another Squigglefly Challenge and since it's the third challenge for this team this month, the theme is "Triple Digits". Sound like fun? Well, it was. I used three of my dear little House Mouse stamps along with the "3 Little Cupcakes" digi from Squigglefly. I placed them on the cupcake digital background paper from Bearly Mine and finished the card with Cuttlebug corners, some Liquid Applique "frosting" and a few precious gems decorating the cupcake tray. Oh yes, and the little pink doily framing the Nestie circle. Oh yes, and I moved the little mouse on the right just a bit off center. I thought it might spoil the ambiance if the bird's tail was climbing up Mousie's nose! (Sorry folks, had to mention that, but I'm sure you'll agree.)
Please join the fun and go Triple Digits with us this week. Remember, freebies are there for you to try, and they're pretty darn cute!

Just a reminder. Please don't forget what this special day is all about and give thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in order to keep us safe and free. My card is dedicated to Lt. Cmdr. Francis Thomas, Naval Reserve Security Officer; Commanding Officer on the battleship USS Nevada, December 7, 1941. He was my cousin.
Thanks for looking.
