Mouse is in da House


I am not much of a girly girl. I never liked playing with dolls or barbi, I don't like chatting on the phone and I can't even remember the last time I wore heels. I do love pink and purple though, go figure. This led to the purchase of the paper I used for this project. I really liked the rich combination of beige, purple and turquoise in this paper pack.

I find the House Mouse stamps adorable and this is one of the very first stamps I ever bought. It is the only one I own because I find them very intimidating. Something about the complexity of the design seems so overwhelming. However, as I was blurfing while I should have been doing laundry (those poor kids are gonna have to turn their undies inside out again LOL...just kidding!) I found a house mouse monday challenge and thought I would give it a shot with my one and only.

The challenge was do something with multiple images. Since I only had one image I had to make due. I stamped the same image three times and then cut out and highlighted the two mice with my little circle frames.

Happy Sunday and Have a great week!

Hi Kim,

Wow!!! This is too incredible!! You colored them perfectly and everything about your card is impressive. I'm gonna have to agree, that color combo is very becoming. Do not fear the micey's, you've done them justice!!
