this weekend

I have had this particular house mouse for about an year now... it caught my attention on eBay and i never did anything with it. ( because it was one of those fallen victim to badly colored with water based markers...) so, I'm enjoying seeing my own coloring coming along playing with the pencils... this card is 5X7 in real life. the house mouse image is from Stampa Rosa (Giddy up) the sentiment is from PSX, these are stamped with versafine on Georgia pacific 110 with some shabby shutters and peeled paint distress ink color dusted on the edges. the sentiments up on pop dots, the shimmery copper organdy is unknown. the green texture cardstock is Bazzill and the PP is from Basic Grey.
Now this is a new to me image, i found this one along with two others yesterday at stampstrucks annual used stamp sale... the name of it is Hot cocoa 1997. Its stamped on GP110 and colored with prisma pencils, the design in the tea cup looked a little southwestern to me with the triangles and when i think of southwest i think of silver gaudy turquoise jewelry... so that's what inspired the colors. the Sentiments from SU (Lovely Labels) and stamped with Versafine Deep Lagoon on the reverse side of the textured yellow bazzill cardstock, the skinny gross grain is unknown. There is a little bit of antique linen distress on the edges of this as i spend the am cleaning and managed to make this particular image dusty... used real fabric pinking shears on the mat. this one's also 5X7 in real life.
Loot... :) this year Alice and i left home 2 hours before the store was to open. it snowed through the mountains and even in the city where this store is ( which doesn't happen there very often) so, the store was not as crowded I'm sure because of the weather... I'm pretty happy about what i found and what i paid for them... :) Alice filled a hand basket cart too, so I'm sure we are gonna go early again next year.
Some different views, all in all i found 4 su sets ( two unmounted) three old house mouse stamps that had not seen ink, some PSX odds and ends, one cool Magenta one.
all these stamps have been inked and cataloged and assembled.
( which was what brought on the cleaning reorganizing jag this morning as it seems when you come home with such a pile there is of course no where to put it.)
