A House Mouse Shower

This weekend I went to a baby shower for a sweet friend and made her this little card:

Over at the House Mouse & Friends blog, you can see all the Design Team members' cards. This week we were to use stitching of some kind on our card. I keep my sewing machine out all the time, so I just sewed a square border around the Wild Wasabi layer. These little mousies are having a fun time in their shower!

I received this image from Stacy (also on the HM&F DT), and colored it using my Stampin' Up! markers. The edges were distressed with the Cutter Tool, I added some flowers and gems - and voila! A House Mouse Shower!

This is such a cute stamp! I love how you colored it. I love how you do all your stuff :) These HM images are so much fun. They are worthy of framing don't ya think!! Have a wonderful "stampin" week my friend!

What a perfect stamp for a baby shower!! I know I don't like HM, but that is such fun. He looks so bedraggled, that poor little mite. And those juicy blackberries and the lovely geen and violet flowers are great. We had our first blackberry and apple pie over the weekend, but it's not a great year for them.

I just love these mousies, LOL. The first time I saw them, the creater had only a 4 page flier of matted images! I had the toothpaste eating and belly ache mousies in my bathroom for the longest time!

I didn't even know they had a blog or a design team! I am going to have to check it out!

OH...and your card is fantastic!!! what a fun image for a shower and wonderfully festive colors for the occasion.
