I think this is the most time consuming card I have ever made:)!! It was worrying me for a while. Not quite what I envisioned but After I completed it I really liked it. I made this for the house mouse challenge this week. It was to paper piece your image. I stamped this image 3 times. Cut and layered each mouse and the coffee cup. I really like this stamp, just have not had much time to work with it. I purchased it as one of my first house mouse stamps several months ago. I hold onto things and wait to use them:) lol. This was not a good idea for this hm stamp:(. When I stamped it I found out that part of hte tail was dented leaving a part of the image missing:( BUMMER! and sorry Gill .. :( ) i did have to draw that in as well as the steam on the tile back ground. I stamped the image onto the 'counter' but forgot the tile! I made the tile by scoring the paper then sanding it. I thought it turned out very neat looking:).
Little did i know in making this card that Spoon Full of Sugar was having their challenge this week as a Christmas card!! I am submitting this card to their challenge as well :) .. but I will probably make another anyway :) I have said it before and will again. I LOVe challenges for the sheer enjoyment of doing it. Challenging myself and learning something new. Meeting new people. I don't think I have ever set out to 'win' one. I feel the more I do and the more I learn the better I will become.
Not many materials used for the card. DCWV paper, cuttlebug, bic mark it markers .. and that's about it~!! Hope you like my card!
Hannah has a dr appt on Tuesday next week. I will let you know what happens!
