Rustic House Mouse

Of course, the House Mouse didn't want to be left out of the "Rustic" theme of the weekend. This cute HM and his Happy Hopper friend got to use some of the DCWV Rustic stack paper too.

Rustic Tildas

I cannot even express how much I love the new stack of DCWV paper that I found at Joann's the other night. I adore it. The stack is called "Rustic" and is absolutely perfect for my Tilda images. I have been coloring them in more muted, subtle colors lately and the paper matches perfectly.

We received another storm last Friday/ Saturday, so I had some extra time to craft yesterday. These Tildas were part of what I came up with. I really enjoyed working with the Rustic paper.

I didn't have a bench stamp for this poor little Tilda to have somewhere to sit, so I made my own bench. The Tilda and the bench are on pop dots for a little 3-D effect.

Lilac House Mouse

I think this image was sent to me by my internet friend, Chris D, ages ago and I have to admit that I was a bit intimidated about coloring it. I love the image, but with all the detail and mousies, I knew it would be quite a task to color. I started working on it yesterday and was going to complete the lilacs with flower soft. After I started coloring them, though, I decided I was going to omit the flower soft idea and just leave them colored with the OMS and prisma pencils.

I'm a little less intimidated now and plan on going through my image basket to see if I can find another image to work with! Thanks for the lilacs, Chris!!

Snowy Tilda and Edwin

I've had this background for ages, but I think this is the first time I've used it for myself. I've stamped it for other people, but never myself.

Tilda and Edwin are cut out and popped with some pop dots about the background.

House Mouse Bookmark

I love some of the bookmarks I've seen recently. Since it doesn't appear that anyone is going to send me one, I decided I'd better make one for myself, but it didn't work out quite as I had planned. This is one of the House Mouse cuties that arrived in my mailbox today. I quickly inked him up and started working on the bookmark. The plan all went well-- until Laura came hom and stole him from me before I could even get his picture posted!! Oh, well, she didn't actually steal him--- I gave him to her, but I'm still without a bookmark, so I guess its back to the craft table for me!!

Berry Happy Birthday

I went to the scrap table this morning, planning on finishing up some more Magnolia images that I had leftover from yesterday. The little mousies had different ideas. They jumped on the table and demanded some attention. My internet friend, Kristie, gave me the idea of putting the ribbon through the buttons. Thanks, Kristie!! Kristie also gave me the strawberry stamp-- so thanks, again!!
