Hi there my blog friends and a special welcome to Asmah my new follower! Thank you all so much for popping over and checking out my little blog planet!
I found this little card whilst I was clearing out a basket with some cards in it. I know I haven't shown it before and..... it is a House Mouse stamp!!! I just love this little mouse's tum tum! It reminds me of my super hubster who, incidentally, pulled in Sainsbury's yesterday!!! Apparently a 'young' lady asked him if he could help her by getting "The Lady" magazine from a high shelf -because she couldn't quite reach it! He does come in useful for that sort of thing, being 6' 3"!!! When he passed it to her she thanked him and then said that she thought he smelled really nice!!!!! Of course I was thinking ahhh bless, he still has it. Then he tells me he would have been a toy boy!!!! I am still guffawing at this final revelation!
The image is one from a set of House Mouse stamps that I bought from Joanna Sheen. The dark coloured diecut is a Spellbinders die (I found the diecut in my stash and can't remember which one it is - ooops). The HM stamp was stamped on a piece of white Neenah card and coloured with my Promarkers, I rounded the corners with a punch. I had some gorgeous lace in my box which looks very much like Torchon bobbin lace (something I used to make) but this piece was made on a machine. First of all I tinted it slightly with some Distress Ink (think it was Antique Linen), I glued this underneath the die cut and added three flowers with button middles! You can't see from the pic but there is some Stardust glitter on the petals and the cake icing - which is pink by the way although it looks lilac. Weird or what?? Sorry that the details are a little sketchy but this was made a while ago and I didn't make notes at the time.
I do hope you like it - if only for the cute little mousey! My stash is slowly - very very slowly - being put in the new cupboard and on my four new shelves!!!! Yay! I have cleared out some drawers so far but I really do have to do this in stages because my back isn't so good. I have found loads of things I had lost - lol - and I even found two Spellbinder dies in the other cupboard!!!
Big hugs to you all
