Hip Hip Hooray - House Mouse

Happy Monday! So glad you stopped by to visit!

This is a card I've been wanting to make for a long time now. I picked up this stamp at a fabulous little scrapping/stamping store just outside of London, ON when on a weekend getaway last fall. We had travelled down to London to attend the first ever Kraftin Kimmie day and had a fantastic time! We got lucky after the event and gained after-hours entry to the fab little store where I picked up this stamp amongst a vast variety of other things (mostly stamps) that quickly filled our shopping bags!

Anyhow, here is my card at long last! I have loved House Mouse forever, but this (and one other purchased the same day) is the first stamp I've actually purchased! I also used a brand new sentiment set from CTMH - Card Chatter - Birthdays, that just came in an order last week! I love getting to use new stuff right away, though it happens not so often. :)
Though I must admit that the image with all the books was a little tedious to colour, I just adore how cute he turned out! I think he works perfectly with this fab line from Bo Bunny!
And here is the inside of my card. I almost don't want to give this one away. I think I'll make another before I do....

I had the challenge at Little Red Wagon in mind when making this card as they are looking for office supplies for their challenge this week. The clips seemed to work perfect here.

Hope the beginning to your week is a good one!

  2. Too this card. You are crazy to be colouring those books...I would go bonkers. Of course they do look awesome, no gain!

  3. Love this card. It is way to cute!! It is always hard to give away cards that we like, you should make two! Had a great time this weekend. I am sorry I am going to miss the next one.

  4. If it's the same store I'm thinking of, I've been there...and it's fabulous! I try to visit there every time I go back home for a visit...especially since it's a stone's throw from "home". ;)

    LOVE the card! Love how you finished the inside, too.

  5. Absolutely fabulous! The colors are awesome! Thanks for playing along at Little Red Wagon:)
