February House Mouse Stamp



The February stamp of the month was a little bit difficult to work with. I mean the mice are cute eating cherries but what kind of card can one make? I just got the Embrace Life stamp set by Stampin Up and saw the 'embrace life' stamp and that was the inspiration I needed to make this card. I found some nice striped paper for it but I only had enough for 5 so the 6th one I had to use the striped paper on the right. I just got the March images in the mail today, whew! Nice to have plenty of time to work on them.



The second card is for my neighbor who is going to have a baby boy any day now. They are good neighbors and nice people, I am so excited for them to be having their first baby! Almost their whole family lives in the immediate area (including her parents in the neighborhood) and are waiting on pins and needles for this little boy. The theme is Dallas Cowboys hence the stars on the card! This card was inspired by (CASE'd) a card Mary Jo Price just made, it was great!

Thanks Cheryl :)

Jan there are a couple of House Mouse stamps with strawberries and I have wanted them for a long time but I haven't broken down and spent the $ to get them. This one is my favorite: http://hmstamps.com/images/Food/HMIR1002.JPG
