3 Clovers Thursday Challenge-Arithmetic and Numbers

I love my meeces to pieces! They had to come out and play for this week's 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge. We are all using numbers or arithmetic on our cards.

I have had this stamp for ages, but it has taken me a while to want to tackle it. It was quite scarey to start coloring this stamp as it is so detailed. It took a while to finish, but it brought me back to the days of crayons and colorbooks! I just colored and had the "bestest" time!

Both my girls are teachers, so this months theme of Back to School on the 3 Clovers Thursday Challenge has been fun for me. Lots of fun cards to send to them. I made this card for my daughter Erin aka Mrs. Newton! And if you look at all those crazy meeces/students...the little one dancing on the eraser has to be my " little Abby"! My daughters are both dancers and their teachers used to tell me how they were always tap dancing everywhere they went!

The House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is back and for their Year In Review Anniversary Challenge #52 you are to pick your favorite challenge from the previous year and make a new creation. My favorite challenge was #44- Paper Tole. I use this technique on most of my meece cards. On this card...all the meeces are on dimensionals....a lot of cutting around their tiney little tails...and they still all have one!

CUTE ALERT!!!! I went over and took a sneak peek of the rest of the cards the 3 clovers Team made and OH MY GOODNESS they are so CUTE! You must go take a peek yourself!

Very cute and oh so charming. Those mice are adorable. I think I'd be the one "yawning" as Math was so not my favorite subject in school.

Jovita said...

Ah Sue this is fabulous and cutting those little mice must have taken awhile.

So excited that you did a HM card! You are my mentor and got me started, so it is always fun to see my "mentor's" work. This is really cute, and I've not seen this image. It is perfect for your daughter and your detail work is amazing. Best, Curt

This is just adorable with a capital A!!! oh my gosh, these mice are just the cutest things, and the one in front yawning reminds me of myself, so I'm taking my tired bum off to bed! Great detailing and cutting, my eyes get tired just thinking of snipping around those tiny mice:)

I bought my daughter this stamp (she's a teacher, 1st grade, and she also was a dancer for 10 years)
Love how you colored it and the background DP you used. So cute.
