the August 2009 House Mouse stamp

Hi!

Softball finished today. The girls won their last 4 games. It was a great season and they were so much fun to watch!

The card I'm showing you today is one I made for this week's House Mouse Challenge. The challenge is to create something for a season. My season is winter, not because winter is my favorite, but because my favorite time to think about cold weather and snow is during the hot summer :)

This image is the August 2009 Stamp of the Month and it just came out. I love little Amanda mouse in the sock !!

The background I created by using my glue pad and dragging it over the dp and then pouring glitter over the top. Fun way to create a snowy background.

Supplies:
Stamps: In a Pinch - Stampabilites, Snowman Love - 2RedBananas
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, SU Bliss Blue (sponging)
Paper: let it snow words - Heidi Grace, Bazzill
Other: May Arts ribbon, nesties, prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits, gems, glitter, Essential Glue Pad

It's a fun challenge, you should check it out.

Our quote for the day: "When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to resemble a nail." - Abraham Maslow

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Glad the girls did well, and that it's over so you don't have to sit out there sweltering in the heat anymore. ;) You're too funny with your line of thinking about winter -lol, but I know what you mean. Fun card --love that sweet little guy in the stocking, and your snowy background is perfect!
