Now I wish I could tell you it is just fun with the House Mouse I used on my card for today... but no... yesterday was an insane day with a tiny little mouse!!! A REAL LIVE ONE! Gato found it, yea! She did her "job" for the first time, but you see, she didn't want to kill it. She wanted to carry it around, play a little with it and generally just keep it. UH NO... that won't work. At some point she dropped it and Autie got a hold of it! Then it was a chase around my house the mouse, Autie and Gato. Totally stressful, and frustrating - finally I got Autie outside, with the mouse, and then said that word.. "Cookie?" He dropped the mouse outside, and looked up at me, giving the mouse just enough time to run off into the weeds. Now it was live catch and release program and I would love to let you think how kind I am to all living creatures... but NO I wanted that little thing killed and no chance that it was coming back into my house!!! But I will settle and tell myself that it is outside, and gone....
Now for some Mice that I do like... whew...
I have a ton of House Mouse stamps, adore them. But honestly haven't inked them up in forever, they just sit on their shelves decorating my room. But I needed a fun "MAN" card, a friend that loves Coffee as much as Hubby does. And I have to tell you I really enjoyed inking this one up and coloring it. Need to challenge myself to use at least one old stamp a week to give some of the million stamps I have some love.
So here is my card -
Taking this card to our Sunday Breakfast with the locals... hope he gets a kick out of it. It was a hoot to make this one!
Have a great Sunday - I'll be back tomorrow with the Stampavie Challenge -
