Some RAKs featuring The House Mouses!

Had a bit of fun last week making and sending a few RAKs to friends on one of my card groups. The idea to make February "RAK" month came from one of our group members and I thought it was one of the best ideas I'd heard in ages. I've had a few rather stressful months lately and one of the bright distractions has been these great groups of ladies (and man, won't forget you Joe) with their encouraging comments and examples of creative paper crafts to keep me thinking positive thoughts. This was a great opportunity to kinda pay it forward just a little bit, and say thank you to everyone who's really kept my spirits up.

This was sent as a birthday card.

This is my cute little "Irish" mouse, a month early, but still cute!

I just grin every time I look at this. Their expressions are priceless!

My only regret is that I really didn't have enough time to make RAKs for everyone, but I won't forget. Eventually I hope I can reach out to those who I missed this go-around. You all deserve it. In the meantime, thank you all for your kind words, for the concern you expressed, for the laughs and inspiration. You're all special people.
