I love anything House Mouse


House Mouse stamps are just too darn cute to me! I love to see what you guys can do with these images. They are images that are never "retired!" They just live on forever.

I made this card for a friend of mine who had a baby boy named Ethan just a few months ago. What a joy for her family...which, by the way, had just had a baby girl named Riley a few months before Ethan who was born by another daughter. Both babies are beautiful and healthy! What "joy" the Lord has blessed this family with.
I scored the outline with my Scor-Pal and added Swarovski Crystals. I colored the image with Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol. Used Labels 4 with dimensionals. The Blue Ribbon comes from Flourishes and is called Steel Blue. The charm came from Hobby Lobby and if you click on the photo, you can see that the charm is a teddy bear. If I am wrong...then I am blind...in reality, I am legally blind...wonder that I can do this work...LOL! The good Lord must love me a lot! I work best without my lenses or my glasses...that way, you would see me with my eyes about an inch away from each card I make....Am I not the luckiest to be able to do my favorite thing and have such a problem with my vision? Yeah, I think so!
Wishing you all the very best of weeks to come...your comments make me smile everytime, so thank you!

One would never know you're legally blind, considering your perfect coloring and all the wonderful little details. You make the most awesome tiny bows. It's interesting that you should mention being legally blind and lucky in the same paragraph. But you are lucky. You're lucky to have that positive attitude to carry you over Life's hurdles. Way to go, Velta! A woman after my own heart!
