The Angry Rat............

Hello everyone: I hope everyone is doing well, I know it's hard to stay inside and not being able to do what we used to do before this whole thing started, but we just have to stay strong and remember that, staying home helps a lot, especially those in the front lines, they are the heroes, God Bless You All.
I've been having a lot of fun using the rats from the Katzelkraft set called Les Rats des Villes, these critters are a riot, love them all. 

Yes, it is!!! Hahaha!! 
I stamped this fellow on a scrap piece of gray card stock and just added a bit of color with my Prismacolor pencils then fussy cut it, I put painters tape on the delicate parts like the ears, teeth and his tail just to give the paper a bit more sturdiness when I'm cutting it, the hole on the wall is a stamp of unknown origins, I've tried to find it "out there" but I couldn't, I'm sorry.
I stamped it on the brick pattern paper and then cut out the middle and glued my rat in front, I attached this panel to a dark gray panel with foam tape.
The sentiment is handwritten by me. 
This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like. 

The sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called "Sassy Succulents" (retired), and I stamped the bottom half of another rat to give the illusion it's like running away, LOL!!

I want to play with the following challenges.

A Robin's Mother's Day..............

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: I hope all of you are doing well, I keep hoping that soon things will go back to a new "normal" for us, although I feel for all of the thousands of people who have lost loved ones or are sick themselves with this virus.
I also want to thank all of the caring doctors and nurses around the world who are taking care of everyone who's affected, God Bless You!!!!!
I'm thanking also the workers at grocery stores, the post office, pharmacies, gas stations, etc., we are eternally grateful for your selfless service.

Now, my teammates and I at SHOPPING OUR STASH have a new challenge for you for the next 10 days, with Mother's Day approaching, we want to see cards for Moms, here is mine and I hope it inspires you to play along.

This card was created with 4 different Stampin' Up! sets, I really love it when I can combine my stamps on my cards, I really SHOPPED MY STASH to find each of these sets, they are part of my most cherished ones.
Thank goodness for the MISTI, it helped me position each image to create this sweet, little Spring/Mother's Day scene.
The nest is from a 2009-2010 SU set called "Nature's Nest"
The Robin, the little eggs on the inside of my card  and foliage are from a 2011 SU set called "Nature Walk"
The sentiment is from a 2009-2010 SU set called "Teeny Tiny Wishes"
The butterflies are from a 2012-2013 SU set called "Papillon Potpourri"
Each image is stamped by applying the marker to the rubber stamp on the MISTI using different colors, (Check out this video by Virginia Lu) it's a great way to give your images a watercolored look. 
I added some shading with my Prismacolor pencils.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment is from a 2012 Stampabilities greetings set called "Card Phrases"
