YES...FALL is in the AIR...

...well maybe not in Cocoa Beach but we try our best to wear "T-shirts" with Fall colors. LOL

I have said it more than once....my stamping addiction began when I was in Hobby Lobby back in 2005 and I came across the Stamp/Card making Department.  I didn't know one even existed!!! My eyes honed in to the cutest HOUSE MOUSE stamp.  That was it....I was hooked!

I have created with this image several times in the past. To change things up a little bit, I used a CIRCLE instead of a square box to accent one of the mice.  I forgot what this technique is called.  I also did a print and cut on the mouse sailing to the ground using glitter marker and pop-ups for dimension. Lastly, those lovely stitched leaf dies by Lawn Fawn.

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #299 is under way.  An included option is to use Fall colors. Done deal...LOL 

A2, I apologize for horrible lighting.  Winds at the beach and being on top floor, blew my
cards off balcony while taking pics.  I won't do that again...LOL  Rhinestone on leaves

Added sequins and yellow brad for this one.

Homemade button and string as an accent on this one.  I did one more
and it just had a different color brad.

  9. Hey, Cely. I've tried to contact you twice. Once from my personal e-mail and once from my gmail account. Both times have bounced back. What is your e-mail address? I looked on your profile but that is the one that keeps bouncing back. [Bunny]``

  10. Love the house mouse images.. (I look at your Christmas card you made me with them when ever I go into my stamp closet) I love the coloring and added leaves. So cute and only way I would welcome fall is with these cute images.

  11. Another housemouse! These images really are too cute - maybe I should look into the CD you mentioned. This technique really is cute and interesting. I LOVE the little mouse who flies down from the tree.

    Just catching up on posts from when I was out sick...boy I missed a lot!
