New Stamps from Sugar Nellie and my 1st House Mouse!!!

Morning... First I want to tell everyone about the new Sugar Nellie stamps!! I am so excited because I just love, love their stamps. (BTW - I have nothing to do with the company - just a fanatic for their stamps!) It is a group of 5 bunnies with sayings. They are based on some ladies knit bunnies that she makes. They are so cute and I can't wait until the 10th!! Yes I preordered and that is when they get sent out!!!! Here is the link to check them out: http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=465

O.K. Now here is a card I made using the house mouse stamps. I don't have the stamps I got this in a swap!! I think they are so cute though!! Can you tell I buy stamps based on "cuteness". I have three little girls what can I say!!!

I made a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card since the image is very large! I used hollyhock, blush and desert sand cardstock from CTMH. I also used my new cuttlebug folders to make the background. THe bottom is the swiss dots and I sanded the raised spots and the top is weathered stripes!! I colored the image in with prisma pencils and used gamsol. I also added liquid glass to the coffee and beans. To make it look like steam coming from the mug I used a sakura stardust glitter pen.

Well I was so excited to be going outside to play with the girls in the snow up until 20 minutes ago when my oldest yelled Mom it's raining!!! Is anyone else sick of the rain ruining a good snowfall here in PA??????

Oh well, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!!
