B&W House Mouse:

If I close my eyes and wish real big, do you think I could make it Saturday again??   ...Tried, and it didn't work :(

So today I am sharing my first House Mouse card.  I had gotten the stamp for Christmas and have been waiting for the right moment to slap this cutie on a piece of paper.  I also used some very special buttons from Spain that I have been hoarding:

Card Ingredients:  House Mouse Monica Dozes and Stampendous! sentiment stamps;  CraftSmart Black ink;  Bo Bunny Et Cetera papers;  Recollections cardstock;  We R Memory Keepers Referee baker's twine;  buttons from Spain.  Tools:  sewing machine, edge distresser.

I made this House Mouse card for the following challenges:  Hotshot Crafts - flowers;  The Paper Variety - fan folds;  CropStop - vintage;  House-Mouse Challenge - black and white;  Simon Says Stamp - use Domi's sketch:

I must get ready for work - have a wonderful Monday!



Best Card EVER! LOVE the B&W.

Hi Deanne,
I just found this gorgeous card on Pinterest and just had to come and leave a little note for you.
All the things you have used are used by alot of other cardmakers, but, somehow, the fact that you have used them all in B/W is very different. I found it drawing me in, my eyes wandering all over the card taking it all in. Just love it.
All the best Linda (UK)
