House Mouse Easter





Except for all the little jelly beans, this cute little image represents how I have felt lately.  Despite colder weather, my little kindergarten students definitely have spring fever.  We took them to our local zoo for an educational program and then we walked around a checked out the various animals.  They were so full of energy but it was so fun to watch their excitement over each animal, especially the 2 week old baby monkey.  At the end of the day I probably looked just like this little House Mouse five minutes after I after I arrived home.

House Mouse and Friends’ challenge this week is to case this card.


I chose to use this fun image.  


I stamped it three times and cut out various parts of each, tracing Spellbinders’ egg nestability dies.  I layered these behind a light purple layer with windows die cut from the same dies.  I tucked a little Easter grass at the bottom of each window and added a little metal wand used to die eggs.  This was all layered on light green and a white card base.

Glad those jelly beans weren’t real – I would have munched them the whole time I was creating.
