It was a bit cool and breezy today so I decided to spend time in my craft room catching up on cards. I had to stop for a bit to settle a cat fight between our big tom cat, Boo, and another cat that made the mistake of coming into our yard. I was running around in my slippers, my daughter was trying to separate them with an old sponge mop, and the dog was running around thinking we were all having a party. Where is the video camera when you need it?
I was putting away a few stamps when I spotted this cute little House Mouse and remembered that House Mouse and Friends’ challenge this week was Make Wishes Come True. I just had to quick stamp this precious image and make a card. I stamped it with Timber Brown Stazon ink and colored it using Tombow Markers and a Dove Blender. One of my favorite birthday cakes was a confettie cake, so I added little colored polkadots to the piece of cake.
The two designer papers are Basic Grey, layered on teal, pink and yellow distressed layers. I used three different dies from Cheery Lynn Designs. I created the pink frame by cutting out a section from the Lattice 1 frame die and then used the Anastasia Border die for the teal lacy border along the bottom and the Cuties 1 die to create the pink flower. I added some Sunny Daze glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle to the center of the flower.
Hope your day was as pleasant as mine.
