Cute Card Thursday & Mouse Sighting!

The challenge for Cute Card Thursday is to make a card for the Men & Boys in our lives, so here's one with the Limited Edition frog set from The Angel Company. I *love* the card - but I couldn't get the color right in the picture at all!! Picture River Rock and Chocolate Chip and it will help! Really, though, I think I prefer the card I posted yesterday for my challenge card. Can it be Cute Card Wednesday this week?? I'm pretty sure it was already Thursday in the UK!! *smiles*



As for the Mouse sighting... It's a House Mouse!!! :) I received a marvelous package of stamped images the other day and now I have a whole bunch of House Mouse Stamps to color!! :) Oh, how fun. But when I sat down to color this one, I really got kind of nervous. "What if it turns out ugly??" So here it is... I colored it with Prismacolors and OMS and left it fairly plain. Too many fal-da-rols and it seemed to take away from the cute image. I did use an idea that I saw on someone's blog (I'd give credit if I remembered whose!!) to mount the vanilla of the image on another sheet of vanilla cardstock to give it a "faux nestabilities" look. Pretty snazzy!! :)




Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!
