Cool House Mouse

What better way to start the new year than with a challenge I've never done before! The Shopping Our Stash challenge this week is Thrice as Nice, use 3 or more patterned papers.

I really did shop my stash on this project! Ages ago I purchased a small package of  mixed 6x6 patterned paper (so hard to use; 6x6 coordinating paper pads are better). I found some papers in that stash and have used it here. 

This card is going to my BIL. I must tell you that he lives in Hawaii and frequently says, "Yes, I'm going home and will be sitting in front of our a/c". When I saw this House Mouse I had to have him to make a card for Mark! You can barely see it, but that paper behind the mouse has flocked snowflakes. Haha, so perfect! 

Stamps: House Mouse Bumble, SU Penguin Pleasantries
Ink: Copics and Memento black

Thanks for popping by. Happy New Year!


  1. Flocked snowflakes for the win!! HA! An excellent use of not-meant-to-go-together papers, too!

    Thanks for joining us at Shopping Our Stash! We hope you'll play along again. :)

  2. Super-cute! Love the combination of image, paper and sentiment.


Comments brighten my day, thank you!
