Home is where the mouse is.

Don't you love it when you come across something that you had all but forgotten about when you are having a bit of a tidy out?

That's exactly what happened to me, when I was doing a bit of re-organizing in my craft room. There were bits and bobs everywhere and then I came upon my old friends, the Makey Bakey Mice! Well the industrious plans stopped right there, as I found myself sitting on the floor looking through the stamps...very one of which put a smile on my face.

You can guess what happened next.....a bit of stamping, a bit of printing from the matching CD ROM, and this was the first result.

If you have any of these stamps, you will know that the guide image is done in a very soft, water colour effect, which is exactly the same look that I wanted to achieve, so I set to work with my Spectrum Blendable pencils, blending oil and paper stumps.

So now I have a lovely completed card, made with the easel template from the CD. The re-organising will just have to wait until another day!

Thanks for stopping by today.
