I am sorry!

Happy New Year Everyone!
I am sorry, I didn't quite get done posting my christmas creations before the festive season was thrust upon me.... Soooo ... you guessed it, I am going to give you more cards to look at :)

This one I created for my husband, incase you didn't know my hubby and I have pet rats.

Here is a picture of my 3 boys L-R Cookie, Haribo and Caramel!
So I normally try and incorporate rats in as many cards for him as I can....
As you can imagine the demand for Rat themed craft goodies isn't exactly high, but cute mice do feature a lot and so they tend to be used the most!

The following card was created using a design by Laurie Wilson for Clear Dollar Stamps called Gouda Day. I have had this set for a long time and hadn't got round to using it! I took one of the mice and then flipped it and created a second and then cosey'd them up so they looked like they were smooching!

Don't they look cute! The sentiment is also by Laurie Wilson but is from one of the Doodle Pantry sets Merry Mistletoe

The mice are coloured using my coloursoft pencils and using paperstumps and baby oil, a technique I am getting more and more used to!

The image is cut using my nesties and also embossed... unintentionally... i sandwiched my stack wrong so it got gently embossed whoops!

The red and green card are from the papermill direct shop and the Holly paper is from Pink Petticoat!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas time, it did go to fast!!
This weekend I am packing up my craft room temporarily as the study/craft room is becoming a nursery!! Only 12 weeks til my little man arrives! eeek!

I still have a few cards I haven't posted since before christmas.. plus I am hoping it won't be long before i'll be creating new things... new craft goodies for christmas has me itching to play!!

Speak to you all soon.

  2. Cute card, yours boys are beauties. The house mouse stamps always remind me of baby ratties...I often forget they are mice lol. Hugs lin

  3. Hi Jennie, your card is lovely. The image is so cute and the sentiment is fab. I must admit, though, that real mice and rats scare the living daylights out of me, lol! I can just about cope with a hamster!

  4. Fab card, such a sweet image and great layout too. I love the photo of your little ratties - I used to have one years ago and I'd love another. Hubby's not so keen at the moment but one day I'll get one :o) Lisa x
