House Mouse Card in the House!


I have been seeing some really cute cards lately using the House Mouse stamps. I decided to dust them off and give them some new life! I colored this cutie in with my Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol. I added flock to his body...minus the feet and tail! Then I applied some pink chalk to his cheeks! He looks pretty satisfied with himself doesn't he? The paper is by Around the Block and Bo Bunny. I got really creative....I'm being a bit sarcastic....and stamped a strawberry on Shrinky Dink paper! I used the Staz On ink in red and green, punched a whole and baked! Love when it shrinks...as a matter of fact I put my oven light on and WATCHED it! (I know, I REALLY need a life!) It's the little things that make me happy! I strung that sweet strawberry on my ribbon. The Amore is from Making Memories.
I will be posting the blog candy winner sometime Friday afternoon! So check back!
Thanks again for all your kind complements!

Polka dot paper and strawberries..two of my favorite things!! Your showcaseing (is that what it is called?) of your card is just delightful!! And if I were to have a mouse in my house...I would choose a House Mouse!!

I saw this on Allison's fave's site and had to tell you what a great, great card. The color just grabs you. (And I'm not even a big house mouse fan).
