I think this is such a cute mouse. Now I would never say that about a real mouse and would probably be yelling for DH to come and get it. This one won't make a mess or bite or anything else that would cause you stress. Doesn't he have the cutest smile.
Before I leave the ladybug theme, I want to show you Jim's glass ladybugs. This isn't the best picture and I tried enhancing but this is the best I could do. They are much cuter IRL. He makes them in two sizes, both on the small side. I like the bigger of the two because it shows more detail.
I promise this is the last ladybug for awhile. This card was not made using the set I recently started using again even though it is the same theme. This goes back to make theme of a month ago when I was stuck on making napkin cards.
I wish I could say this was my idea but it is another Pinterest find. As always when I get out a se,t I have to make a few different variations. I like using the red polka dot paper when I make a card with ladybugs. My supply of it is shrinking so I guess I make a lot more ladybug cards than I can remember.
So this is the piece I promised a few days ago. Now that I look at it closer, it is not the same flower, This one is a morning glory and hummingbird. So many of his pieces remind me of my youth. My parents had morning glories in the back yard and had a few humming bird feeders.
This looks like a poppy to me. Do poppies come in blue? My parents had poppies planted right at the bottom of their front porch steps and they were an orange/red color. That is the color I usually think of for poppies. He has another piece I will post that has a very similar flower but it also has other things with it. I will post it in a few days.
Every year I try to get rid of a few stamps sets that I am not using. Before I do, I try to make a few cards with it to decide if I really want to keep it. What do you think happened when I used this one? If you said you kept it, you would be correct.
Sorry there haven't been any new posts. I thought I had posts scheduled through the end of August, but I don't. I do have some already done for September so I guess that was what I was thinking of. This is another of Jim's celtic designs. I called it a wolf so I hope that is what it is. I like the wood like glass that he has in the background.
So easy to make this card and it is SO nice. The butterfly and greeting are the only things I stamped. The ribbon on the bottom covers the fact that the napkin is a bit short for the card base. I have made napkin cards twice now in class and they want more. I told them one more time and then we are taking a break from them. They all bring in their napkins and have a napkin exchange. So FUN.
