Hi Everyone,  Today I have a card for the House Mouse Challenge #116 "Let's Have A Party".

I used the "Soda Fitz" stamp for this card.  These little meeces look like their having fun, drinking up all the soda in the crate.  I colored the image with Copic Markers, reduced it on my printer then cut it out with a Nestabilities Label Nine. I don't know where the designer paper is from but it seemed to go with the party theme (seeing stars after drinking all the soda).   I ran my gold pen around the inside edge of the die before removing it from the image.  I added a couple of gold eyelets and some green Bakers Twine.  The sentiment is a long since retired set from SU.   I seemed to have picked up a shadow in the lower corner of the picture, I'm sorry about that.  A photographer I'm not-that's plain to see.  I think this card will go in my box that is heading out to "Send A Smile 4 Kids" this month.
This is a wonderful organization that sends cards to children in hospitals to bring a smile to their face.
Maybe, if you have a spare minute, you can check out this site and if you have any extra cards that you've made you could forward them to these children.  House Mouse stamps are just so darn cute I think kids will get a kick out of any card with these darling little mice on them.
Have a wonderful afternoon and evening and hopefully I'll see you again tomorrow.  Thanks for spending a minute or two here with me today.

  8. Hi Donna!
    I'm having internet trouble so if I comment twice, you can get rid of one!
    Love the image! Made me smile!
    Good job!
    Do you just set your printer to print at 50% or something!?

    1. Yes, Gail I just set the printer at 50% or 60% which ever size I want and then print it in color because I've already colored the larger image. Sometimes I have to touch up the coloring.
