Our challenge today is to Reuse or Recyle something on your card. So...I am reusing this stamp again-a stamp I bought at a garage sale. The stamp that I think I made my first House Mouse card with and have used many times since! This is an old Stampa Rosa stamp named Party Mouse.  I am sure it has been re-issued as it is a popular one! Since I still had my 'singletons' on my desk from the last card I made, I couldn't resist inking up Monica! 

I used a fast and easy little fun fold card that has a lot of dimension.... 4-flap window nesting card-bracket designed by Lori Whitlock.  


 Such fun Echo Park cherry paper(Homegrown Cherry On Top)- you gotta know I love anything with cherries on it since I work at a cherry plant!


I used a small sentiment from Snippets by Penny Black.

House Mouse Monday Challenge 232-NEW Friends Mid Way Reminder











Challenge  #232 Mid Way Reminder


Lots and lots of New Designs and Products!
Interpret this anyway you'd like and just tell us what is NEW about your project! Could be anything New, New theme, New Year, New Celebration... up to YOU. As always, we have the Anything Goes Option!



New Friends

Hello mousie lovers!  My card today is a throw back from the "olden days" of my stamping years.  In the beginning of my stamping days, I only had these little single meece stamps and I would put them in all types of scenario's-they were at my mercy!  I belonged to a Yahoo House Mouse group and that was sort of standard practice with us all. I stumbled across a card the other day made by Dorothy Spier-she was the master of getting the most out of her single stamp meecies-bless her heart. Dorthy has since passed away and I cherish each of her creations!

 I decided when I saw this fun Valentine Cut file from the Silhouette Store, it would be perfect to slip in a few meece! I did enlarge the card so I could invite a few more critters to the party! (The finished size is 4.25 x 6)



 Here is just a small pile of my individual house mouse stamps.  You could use meece cut out of scenes as well----if you are needing just a  mouse or two!


I had my Scan N Cut2  cut out the meece...quick and simple, although there were a few casualities in the cutting of the meece-a couple lost tails and..can you find the poor mousie that lost a part of his ear?  Normally I would just rescan the images to have them cut right, but because I knew they would be tucked in under the hearts I just went with it!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge-Anything Goes!







January

Anything Goes!










Hello! Boy I have been gone a long time...holidays always get the best of me... 

Today I am here with a cute little  h.e.l.l.o. card.  I used a little Bear Blank 1 stamp and a cute little h.e.l.l.o. stamp from the Penny Black Snippets set. 

I like to use fun fold type cards when using smaller Penny Black Stamps-they seem to  highlight a small image and bring them front and center. This fun fold is named Peek-A-Boo Birthday Owl Card by Lori Whitlock. I did not use the owl image but instead added my little bear-stamping the sentiment in the message box.  I added a little twine to close the card. I chose Pebbles 6x6 Be Mine paper

 You can open it up and write your message inside.

Penny Black Christmas or Winter Challenge






Christmas/Winter

Mid-way Inspiration


Welcome to our Penny Black Saturday Challenge midway reminder. 

I have soooo many fun images to choose from, it was hard to choose just one for my tag.  I chose to use this cute Snow Kiss stamp and a fun cut file from the Silhouette StoreEvergreen Round Tag. The words were cut using a font named Japan. I used some pretty old fashioned designer papers from Authentique named Wonder and Bo Bunny Father Christmas Collection.


That's it for me tonight...heigh ho, heigh ho, it's off to bed I go!

Hot Java Mama-Art Impressions







When I saw this stamp set, I knew I just had to get it. It is so me! I have several "older than me friends and family (if only by a few days)" that it would be perfect! I actually called my daughter in the big city and she picked it up for me!  She knows my stamping addiction!



You know how you text and you get extra letters and funny auto correct messages??...well I am the queen of weird messages and my "older" friends totally get it-they send them too!

I kept the card very simple because the image and sentiment are so darned fun.  Simple-I paper pieced her robe and colored the rest with copics. 

I am sharing with the following challenges:


Now-back to baking Christmas cookies!
