Ok, so I got these House Mouse images in the acrylic version over the weekend. They are cute, but man, they are intimidating to color. I used my Prismas and blended with OMS and a paper stump. I inked around the edge of the image once I trimmed it. The image is then double matted with PP. A kraft cardstock base is covered in striped PP; it reminds me of those designer candy canes. I cut a slit in the crease of the card with a Fiskars craft knife, then threaded the sheer ribbon through and tid a knot. The sentiment is stamped with black ink; it is from the Winter Wonder set from Verve Visual . I used a sketch from Splitcoast Stampers; one of these days I'll remember to jot down which one I used. I also stamped a sentiment inside, it's from a SU! set.
Well, we have not heard from our friends about their grandchild yet. Maybe it was too late to call or maybe she hasn't given birth yet. Got my fingers crossed for a safe delivery and a healthy baby and momma.
We are expecting lots of rain over the next few days; we sure need it. I thought it would be freezing cold this morning, but it was quite warm. Maybe the calm before the storm; the wind was whipping through the trees and it sounded awful outside. The wind really scares me, we had a tree come down on the house when I was pregnant and now I find myself praying every time the wind blows that it doesn't happen again.
