August HM Card


Here is my August House Mouse card for the swap I am in. This is a Cuttlebug card, that's for sure! The red layer is embossed with the paisley folder, the black layer is the Nestabilities in the c-bug, the hanging tag is a c-bug die. All favorites :) I had the hardest time coloring the apple! Not the colors but staying in the lines LOL. Failing Kindergarten 101. I kept accidentally going into the smile area for some reason. Anyway I made the little mouse gray, everyone seems to paint them brownish/tan but I had a mouse when I was a kid as a pet and it was gray and his name was max. Just like Maxwell of House Mouse! However Muzzy and Monica are the gray ones in House Mouse, not Maxwell. Oh well. Maxwell, Mudpie and Amanda are tan. I can tell the way she draws them she intends them to be a specific mouse but it is hard to tell sometimes. I think this stamp is Maxwell so now he is gray :) I guess if I owned the stamp I would know from the picture on it! That gives me creative license to choose my color when I don't know, huh? I will actually buy the November stamp for this swap. More than you wanted to know about these mice, huh? :)

This card reminds me of fall or Halloween. And of course, being Halloween I love it! Hey, I was wondering, does the House of Mouse stamps have any with blueberries?
