Two sweet mice...on a budget

My friend Stacy has a blog called Twinshappy (she has twin boys!) And on her blgo every Monday she has a House Mouse Monday where her cards are made with House mouse stamps! Well I only have one house mouse image and sweet Stacy knows that so to my amazement and suprize she sent me a big ol envelope full of house mouse images and since she sent them (a couple of weeks) I haven't been able to play! Well no more! Here is my house mouse card for Stacy! Thanks so much for your generosity girl...you are truly an amazing *friend*

So her challenge toda was to create a card that was less than $2, not cunting stamps, paper, or ink...LOL that should be easy enough! Here is my got at it!
Here is a close up of the little mice...I was very pleased with the coloring...hopefully the reinkers and aqua painters won't count either...otherwise my budget is shot!
So the ribbon I got from my ribbon bin...a gift from a friend (thanks Nikki!) so that was free...bringing the cost of my card to NIL! so far! Doing great huh!
The little clip was from an assortment and it had about 30 or so clips in it for 5.95 so for one I would say I paid (getting out calculator now! LOL) .20 cents The ribbon I added I think would probably cost approximately 10 cents...if that! So that makes my card a whopping 30 cents! Although I did pay for th re-inkers and the paper and the aquapainters and ..well at least I didn't pay for the stamp! Thanks to Stacy!
I love how this card turned out and am very pleased with the coloring...and again I don't have Copics, but would love a chance to try them out...for now I'll stick to my re-inkers and water color wonder crayons!
Thanks for coming by and please go on over to stacy's blog and check out the challenge!
Happy Stampin'
