I have yet to mail it out.....lets say it together....procrastinator ;)
When I saw this fun stamp I knew I had to play with it, and I knew exactly who I wanted to give this to.
You will see why I was so excited about it in a bit ;)
I stamped and coloured directly on the die cut shape.
I coloured the cute mouse with my Copics.
I then paper pieced the the little mouse girl's dress. I then coloured her sash with the copics, right on top of the pattern paper.
I was hoping that the "To my friend" looked like a tea bag.
Look, I even remembered to keep the Copics out so you can see the colours I used :)
Now this is why I was so excited about this stamp set.
It not only had the cute mouse stamp and sentiments, but it also had these stamps to make the accordion coffee cup and the mouse peeking out of it.
I used the honeycomb papers to make this, it was so fun to work with :)
I am also going to make a small pocket for the inside to put a tea bag in.
I am not happy with the colouring of the mouse on the inside. But the Copic markers would have bled through to the back, so I had to use the only thing that we had at the cottage...some old crayola markers.
Onto My Day:
I had to do some odds and ends with my book work.
Then ran out to pick up a few groceries, as we are having our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.
Tonight is the first night back to my Friday Night Scrapbooking :)
I am so excited.
I have some coloured images that I was planning on putting on some cards tonight.
We will see how much we get done, or we may just chat the night away. Either way, we will have a blast :)
Hope you all had a creative Friday :)
