Best Comment Ever + Paper Sparks Challenge

I have been totally remiss in awarding my Official Best Comment of the Year Award, which was not really an award category until I saw Jenny's comment on my post about Maria's birthday card. The card read "Happy 39th* Birthday (*plus shipping and handling).  Here is Jenny's comment:

Totally awesome.  I wish I knew a nine-year-old stamper for whom I could make that birthday card. Jenny, email me your address so I can send you a fabulous prize package!

In other news, I finally got around this weekend to playing in the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  Here is the inspiration picture:

And here is my card:

Oh, shiny paper, how I love thee!

I arranged the snowflakes in the Silhouette Studio to mimic the plates, then cut them out of that gorgeous DCWV metallic paper, then layered some Aspire Petalics paper behind it.  I wanted to use Mr Mouse's cheese for that pop of yellow, but it just didn't seem to work.  So instead Mr Mouse (from Santa Paws) is staring up in awe of those huge snowflakes (which, as an added bonus, I have cut out to use on other cards).  I cut Mr Mouse out of grey cardstock, and I love how his tail got a little 3D curl to it while I was cutting it out, don't you?

LOL, I loved Jenny's comment, too! You know how I feel about that!! And, um, I had no idea that you owned Santa Paws but I'm glad you do. Luckily I didn't send you that set. ;) I love your darling mouse staring up at the snowflakes! Thanks so much for playing along in the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge!

Jenny's comment made me actually laugh out loud - as we say often around here, it's funny because it's true :)
I love how Mr. Mouse is looking at the magical glittery snowflakes - and I really adore the punny sentiment.
The school meeting is today - hah! - hopefully there will be no tears nor arrests. Ahem.

PTI? Are you paying attention???

Love Mr. Mouse and his curly tail. Not sure if he's in awe of the huge snowflakes or all the shine!

This is totally adorable Meg - you ROCK that Silhouette woman! I total want one but know I could never create the things that you do with it. I totally love this sweet card. Sorry I have not been around to comment as much lately - tutoring shifts have picked up, and I REALLY need the money! Sending hugs anyway...
