Friendship is knitted with Love

Happy Sunday everyone.... I'm a little late today with making my Featured Stamper card - it is one of my favourite challenges on Splitcoast Stampers.... My dear hubby and I were very happy to have our oldest granddaughter "Kayla" for a sleepover. Her Daddy and Mommy picked her up a little while ago...

Nicole Taylor aka "ButterflyEars" on Splitcoast is today's Featured Stamper. Here is the adorable House Mouse card "CAS31 Pop it Up" that I cased. I was also lucky enough to receive many House Mouse images and sentiments from Nicole - this is one that she sent me. Thank you so much Nicole... I am going to have so many hours of pleasure colouring those images.

Below is a close up of my adorable little mice. I coloured the mice with prismacolour pencil crayons and gamsol.. Cut out image, used my dry embossing tool to give the image dimension. Popped up image over base image. I had added some white flower soft to the bottom image, plus I clear embossed their eyes to darken them and give them some shine.
This card also qualifies for two more challenges on Splitcoast Stampers - Virtual Stamp Night - Winter Olympic Challenge - FEBVSNMINI3 - Red Mittens . Adelle's challenge was to make a card that includes the colours of red and white and wool or yard in honour of the mittens.
Plus Dawns challenge- FEBVSNMINI2 - Chill Out - we are to use white flower soft/tacky glue or embossing powder - (white, clear, glassy glaze) for snow or ice.
