on a roll

this stamp (Stampa Rosa having a sleigh ride) arrived in the mail yesterday, so i colored one last night. the sentiments from SU. (happy winter) the mat under the mice is stardream chiara aqua marine (shimmer cardstock) the pp under that is from Basic grey (fruitcake collection) the satin ribbon is from Papertrey ink (auqa mist) (as is the card base) this card is 5X7 in real life.
rubbed some diamond stickles onto my thumb then added a layer to the "snow"
This cutie is an PIF image from AJITZI ( Thanks Mimi ) from Penny Black called so happy to catch you. the sentiments from SU (define your life) the background PTI white is stamped with the old SU french script in black. the ribbon is unknown, the pop-dotted sticker doo-dads are from K&Co. the cardbase is that newer neutral su came out with a few years ago that i can never remember its name... (and Alice has my book ) so, this one is also 5X7 in real life.
Very lumpy button...
another of those yard sale finds... the bear is from Comotion Stamps, the huge green ric-rac is from May Arts, the green meshy looking fabric is from MM. the background pp is the reveres side of the Basic Grey fruitcake pp in the first card i made this morning. the mat under the bear is PTI Spring Moss. there is some DMC embroidery thread in the button holes... this button is either out of one of that co that sells them in the big grab bags or its vintage... ( no way to know my buttons are in antique canning jars)
this one originally the plan was to start doing two cards same design, so I have two of these silent mice colored the same in my tin and the first one i started to trim it down and went in too far with the cut, so cut it all the way out and used pop dots (1/16) on it to layer to the one not cut yet.
the mice are stamped with versafine on gp110 and colored with prisma pencils. the lace was bought at a yard sale last year. the sentiments from SU (all holidays) the blue shimmer is star dream, the mat around the mice is another scrap of basic grey. the burgundy textured cardstock is Bazzill, the cardbase is Whisper white. this one is 6 Inches square in real life.
on a side note, we live across the street from a Jr. high school and Tim went over this morning to play with his metal detector ( I call this playing gopher for future reference so you know what that means) while he was there a young white lab puppy found him. so far we have found out from the AKC (the only tag she is wearing) that her owners live in a town about 30 miles south of us, and gave the akc a phony phone number... 22222222222... dumb people, so we are gonna take her by the vets in the am and see if she has a beeper in her back... and maybe her owners gave out their names or phone number to them... the only thing the AKC could tell us is her name is Abby, which she answers to. best guess is shes about Grace's age.
