House Mouse ~ Berried

Hi Peeps! What a day I have had. First of all the weather has been lousy with lots of rain. I was at work very early and had to leave after a few hours, because the weather was looking pretty bad. Then when I got home, it stopped raining. I was kinda happy, because I wanted to work in my craft room. So I started a box template that I had been working on using some of my best cardstock (remind me not to do that again). Messed up the box, wasted that cardstock and my time. I guess I should chalk it up to being a lesson learned.

I made this card for a friend of mine, actually she is my boss...but we have been friends for a long, long time. I used the House Mouse Berried stamp and had a blast coloring it...used SU's Purely Pomegranate cardstock and the ribbon as well. I used some left over DP...and cannot remember the name, but it certainly went well with SU's PP. I stamped the image on Spellbinders Labels 7 using Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored the little guys with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I put the sentiment from Artful Inkables on a Spellbinders label and topped it off with the 3 pink rhinestones to the left. I love House Mouse!!

Hope all of you are doing well and staying safe! Thank you for your visit and many Blessings to you all!

Hi Velta! I'm sorry you had a hard time with that box! I just hate it when I go in to relax and accomplish nothing and feel more like I've just killed a tree for nothing!

Your house mouse card is really sweet! I just love these images. I keep thinking I might just use my lilac house mouse for my May calendar. I love the little ribbon tabs you have to the side of your image.

Such an adorable image, I bet it was fun to colour! The card is beautiful! Drats on your luck with the template. I usually try out a template on crappy cardstock, except if I mess up...then you can be sure I used the good stuff LOL!
