Happy Sunday everyone. Today over at Splitcoast Stampers - Cathleen Torina (aka ctorina) has the honour of being this weeks featured stamper. I chose THIS cute card of hers to case. I haven't used my house images for awhile and I had the perfect image to use today.
This also works for the House Mouse & Friends challenge #69 - distressing.

The adorable House Mouse image I used is called "Bunny Cruise", I water coloured the image with Stampin Up reinkers. Clear embossed the drink glass and inner tube. Sponged on the clouds - using the edge of a round scalloped circle. I ran a piece of blue card stock through the Cuttlebug using the Divine Swirls folder, tore it into two strips to make the waves. I cut the surf boards from some DCWV dp I had. Added gold liquid pearls to the Palm tree coconuts. Assembled the card, sewed edges. I used a Sun stamp from Studio G - stamped it over the HM and Palm tree panels. Punched out the 1" circle, sponged edges, printed sentiment, added the dots and stickles. Popped up the sun. Curled the torn waves and added stickles to the water...

Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Stamping and Created,

Hugs.. Pat
