Pullin' out the Dusty Stamps!

My husband's boss and his wife just became first time grandparents this weekend. They had a new baby grandson who weighed in at 9lbs 12 oz!! Can you imagine? I thought mine were big at 8 lbs 10 oz! And their daughter is just a bitty thing....so go figure! Anyway, I wanted to make them a card to congratulate them, so I pulled out this old House Mouse stamp. I used to collect these stamps and have quite a few. Then the stamping industry got so big, and I collected so many other stamps, that these have been neglected! I thought it was high time they see a bit of love.

I used my Copics, Nestibilities, and some Basic Grey paper. The sentiment is by Endless Creations, Inc. (Another old stamp of mine!) Since the image was large, I couldn't do much with the background, so instead I added some glitter to the edges of the image. I also used some Papertrey Ribbon and buttons for a finishing touch.


I am hoping that this works for a new grandparents card!
I so appreciate all of your well wishes! Cort and I are still sick, but doing a bit better. She is still on her antibiotic and nebulizer. I hope I can send her to school tomorrow. We will see how she is in the morning.
Have a great Sunday evening!

OMG! Have I missed out on some great cards of yours. I will definitely have to borrow some of your stamps. You have awesome ones. This card is soooo cute. Hopefully everyone is feeling better real soon. I know how much you would hate to lose a day of school. I haven't had a minute to breathe around here. Take care, and hope to see you guys out walking soon.

When my husband and I became first-time grandparents we were so touched by the people who sent US a card. So thoughtful! This card is adorable. I've never used the house mouse stamps-I don't think I have the patience. You did a beautiful job! Hope you feel better soon.
