Dust It Off Sunday - House Mouse - You are What you Eat!

Happy Sunday- DIOS day and today I have a card that was a lot of fun to put together. This image always cracks me up.. that with the sentiment..

This is one of my very first House Mouse images I think .... my card is all about the cherries. I used a piece of Magnolia paper, matted on white and green. Then a piece of scraps pink and red matted on red on a white card. And all sewed down with a zig zag stitch. And what do you think of my cherries? Pretty good huh. I punched out two circles and then free hand cut the stems and the leaves. All the punches I had of leaves were just too small. So I had to wing it myself. I shaded with my Copics and high lighted with a white gel pen.

The image is colored with my copics and then matted with a scalloped rectangle nestie.

Funny aren't they? As long as they are doing funny things on my cards and not coming in my house that is!
I added Dimensional Glaze to the cherries... they are really shiny.

Seriously it all just cracks me up.. and I think a fun card to send to give a smile to a friend. Hope it made you smile ;0)

Only a couple of days left to enter my Letraset Aqua-Markers Candy... link at top of my side bar.

Have a wonderful Sunday -
HUGS and -

Ok, trying hard to stay away from House Mouse, I already have a Magnolia addiction! Such a cute and fun card though! You did a great job with your cherries =) I thought they were die cut.
