On Fire with the Mice.....

Hello everyone: Well, all of my 5 grandchildren are finally on Summer Brake and that means, a house full of kiddos, even the "older" ones, wanting to go to the pool, ride their bikes, etc. So, my time for crafting is a bit limited so that's why I created this card for the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge with an image that I had already colored but changed my mind about giving it to my daughter for a friend of hers in church who was celebrating a birthday and she just doesn't like mice so, I gave her something else and kept this fun image in my stash of unfinished cards.
This card fits the SHOPPING OUR STASH CHALLENGE because this week we are asking you to create your cards using your favorite image, technique, colors, papers, etc.  As you can see, I used my favorite little critters, the House Mouse siblings and I used my favorite way to stamp and color them, using Versafine black ink, clear heat embossing it and colored with my watercolors.

I added a few enamel dots and a sentiment also from my stash of leftover or put on hold sentiments.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a retired SU set called "Perfectly Penned" and the fireworks from The Ton "Pyrotechnics" set.

So I hope you find some time to come and play along with my fab SHOPPING OUR STASH teammates and me in our gallery.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
