House Mouse - Jump Start

A friend of mine and I have decided we'd start walking in the mornings, at least a couple days a week. We started this morning and when I got back, I put on the coffee pot. That cup of coffee sure sounded good after being in the fresh, cool morning air.

That's when this card idea hit me. I've had this House Mouse stamp for quite some time and it hasn't seen a lot of use. I pulled it out and made a couple of cards with it today. I hope you like them.

Stamp: Java Jumpers - House Mouse Designs - Stampabilities
Card stock: Whisper White, Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Stamped with SU Basic Black ink
Colored with SU markers - Close to Cocoa, Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue, Apricot Appeal, Mellow Moss, and a few Prisma Color markers for the mice.
Sage card has sponging around the edges of the image using Sage Shadow
Cuttlebug Textile embossing folder was used for the front of the Sage Shadow card base
Chocolate Chip Satin ribbon from SU was used on the 2nd card
SU Top Note Die Cut from Sizzix was used to cut out the images

Now that I've had my morning walk, my morning coffee, and my morning stamping fix, it's time for me to get going on some housework.

Thanks for looking. Leave a comment if you like what you see

These two little guys look like they have had way too much caffine ! Very sweet ! I kinda get that "glazed over" look when I smell a fresh pot brewing though too!
