Mouse House or is it House Mouse

I am never sure which way this should be labelled and even after I look it up (its House Mouse) I still want to say Mouse House lol.

I won these stamps last year from the lovely Di at the Snippet Playground and I have finally inked them up and coloured one of them. It took a lot longer than I realised but I think its really cute. The rest of the card is a tried and tested, mojo is a wandering, card style. I return to this sketch time and time again when I am fresh out of ideas and I still like it even after all these years.

I am also on a use it up kick at the moment, I recently had a bit of a crafty spending splurge (look out for the videos soon) and I now have nowhere to store my new goodies, so I have decided to start using it up. No more replacing something as soon as I am half way through, no this time I need to start using the whole item and then not replacing it. OMG I am breaking out in a sweat jut thinking about it.

So as the image was a prize from the snippet playground I had to make the card with some snippets. The patterned paper isn't a snippet but all the card was.

Oh Amanda - I adore this! Gosh you used that stamp so well - beautifully coloured and matched to the backing papers of course. Have you seeeeen the look on that mouse's face, looking in the mirror? He doesn't look too sure does he? Tee, hee!!

C'mon - show your new goodies, I love to watch your videos to see what lovely things you've bought to play with.

Drat, Blogger gobbled up my comment and said there was an error - here goes again!

Great to see you playing with the new stamp there, gosh you really did it justice! I giggled at the HM looking at himself a bit uncertainly in the mirror :) Super colouring and great papers you chose of course.

C'mon - upload that video - I love to see what you've been buying!
