Mouse Hello


Here he is; the real thing, just making himself at home on our guest room bed. Guess he thought he was a guest!

He was kind enough to stay still for picture taking, and capturing. There he remained until my husband got home to dispose of him. Long story about how he made his way into our house, but I’m confident his friends will remain outdoors.


Amazing, but I can still look at our mouse from the Special Someone Stamp Set, and think he’s cute. So, here he is, stamped in Early Espresso and Sahara Sand Inks on Sahara Sand Cardstock, and cut with his Special Day Die.


I gave him an OUTDOOR field, cut with a Friendly Silhouettes Die from Peaceful Poppies Designer Paper. This was glued to Crumb Cake Cardstock, cut with a Nature’s Thoughts Die.


The green stripe is also Peaceful Poppies DSP, adhered to a Thick Whisper White card base.

“A little hello” is from Itty Bitty Greetings, stamped in Early Espresso Ink, and cut with an Ornate Frames Die. I like the little hole that’s part of the die, and Linen Thread fits right through it.


The theme at the Paper Players this week is “cards that make you smile.” I hope this did the trick!


Read about my May gifts:

First of all, this month’s Host Code gift is something I know you’ll want in your collection. It’s the new, fabulous, Ornate Floral Embossing Folder! I’ve already used it on a number of my cards, and it adds gorgeous texture. Just add my Host Code (DGMYPXET) in the box provided when you order a minimum of $50.00 in the month of May, and I will send the embossing folder to you in June.


Secondly, I’m having a drawing for two items: the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set AND the Small Bloom Punch. Your name will be entered in the drawing when you place a minimum $100.00 order in May.


This is Stampin’ Up’s list of retiring items, so click here, then click on “Last-Chance Products” in my store. Order those bundles now while you get the 10% savings, and earn the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder from me, plus a chance to win the Small Bloom Punch and Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set.


Last, but not least, if you are a customer of mine, you will be receiving the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog sometime in May, with ordering beginning June 3rd. The catalog happens to have a brand new stamp set (page 48) that coordinates with the Small Bloom Punch!
