I [heart}2stamp (sfytt) and Flourishes (BBB21)

Happy Monday everyone - I hope your week is starting off great!  I am entering this card in the I{heart}Sketches April challenge at I {heart}2stamp (based on the sketch provided below) and the Flourishes Bring Back Beauty Challenge - The Beauty of  Friendship which is to make a card or creation with a friend in mind.  I made this card with my friend Karen in mind.  She has been on the fast track of the maze of life for the past couple of months (many times feeling like she is going in circles).  She is wonderful woman who has the uncanny ability to juggle more projects than most people can even fathom - and she has no real idea how amazing and strong she really is.  I keep telling her that she deserves a reward (much like this mouse and its cheese) :o).  This maze idea worked just perfectly with the April sketch (you'll notice I flipped the orientation for my card).  In retrospect, I wish I had used a lighter color on the maze background as it seems a bit too bold and the cheese doesn't stand out very well in the photo - but she will get the idea I'm sure.  This is actually a working maze too - so if she ever slows down enough to take a break she can play with her card :o). 

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit - I'm sure glad that you did.  I hope you saw something you liked or that inspired you in some way.  I love to receive your comments so please feel free to pass me a little note.  Hugs!
