BABY MOUSE IN A NUT SHELL BOAT



Yea, it's mid week. Sometimes the time just flies by. This past weekend was very busy. My son in law came home for R & R from Iraq.

However, I did get this card made for FRIDAY SKETCHERS. The sketch worked perfectly with this image. The card looks simple, yet elegant. The colors are teal and purple. I am going to call this little baby mouse Timmy. Don't you just want to pick him up and cuddle him? It is a new stamp from Stampavie and I just had to have it.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:


Whimsy Stamp Challenge - Animal Magic - I think Timmy qualifies for a sweet little furry animal.

Paperplay Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small - He qualifies for small as do his friends.
Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge - Cute as a Bug - He has a lot of little bug friends.

ABC Challenge - Anything goes and animals - he is a small animal.



This card has ten layers, if you include the popped up leaf. The image is heat embossed and colored with Copics. I have found it very difficult to get good pictures when you use stickles and gloss. The camera either picks up too much shine or not enough. If anyone has any tips, please pass them on. The water is glossed to look real, as well, as the leaf covering the bed. The butterfly, dragonfly, and the flowers have stickles applied to them. The two butterfly embellishments have wire antennas and body and little rhinestones on their wings. I used a sheer purple polka dotted ribbon to finish it off.

I carried the semi circle on to inside and added another little butterfly. The paper is from The Nursery paperpack.

Thank you for looking and please let me know what you think about Timmy. I enjoy reading your comments and visiting you blogs.

NOTE: I will be posting my candy blog this weekend in celebration of Labor Day.
