{ mean we're supposed to write in them? }

My 5YO said to me today..."Mom, you're always just making cards for yourself, you never make them for anyone else." Not sure where that came from! Anyway, I will be sure to send this one to someone, little man!

You know I adore the House Mice...I don't have this stamp, but I had a few images stashed away from a friend. I think I actually colored this little guy about 5 months ago when we were on a visa run to Singapore...I brought along a few images and my trusty Prismacolor pencils...ah, therapy! I lined up some scrap strips along the bottom to fill in some space. There's a line of faux stitching across the top, too - it needed just a hint of something dark to balance it all out.

There's another new watermark too...I figured out a little something this weekend on extracting images...that is a flower I took a picture of last Sunday at a Chinese New Year celebration. Cool, huh?


  1. Very cool watermark - haven't seen any like this!
    House Mouse is one of my favorites, too. Cute, cute card! Have a blessed day!

  2. What a pretty card! Kids say the darndest things, huh? I don't have any yet, but I'm sure I'll have stories just like that when I do. :)

  3. This card looks like artwork...there is not one edge unforgotten! Super work!

  4. Love this card, especially the ribbon you used, and the house mouse stamp is too totally cute!
