House Mouse - Get Well Soon...

Hello Friends

Just a quick post today.  My lunch break is nearly over and I had to pop out to buy my Girls a new water butt as their old one had rotted through!! 

I thought I would share some House Mouse cards I made recently for two poorly bunnies I know. I made them almost the same but changed the ribbons and colour of the teddies.  Oh! The buttons are different colours too.

I stamped them with Memento ink and then coloured them with Copics.  Die cut with Spellbinders and stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts.
I added the sentiment "I hope you are on the mend very soon" inside by hand.  I just love the look of concentration on the mouse with the needle!  I wonder if I look like that whilst I am sewing??

Both ribbons came out of the Snippet box so I shall share them over at the Playground.  The buttons I have had for ever so they are VOS - Very Old Schtuff! As well as NBUS - Never Before Used Schtuff being the stamp!

Hugs and have a great Hump Day!!

The detailing in the stamp is wonderful and so adorable, that cute mouse stitching the soft toy mouse back to good health.
There is no doubt that such a card would make your friends feel so much better.

So cute Sam! Love the little repair job and a great image on a couple of perfect cards. So funny, when I saw the thumbnail I thought it could be a HM stamp I have coming up as a prize in the Playground before too long, similar but not the same :) Phew!

Hugs, Di xx

Absolutely delightful image, and so deliciously coloured. I think you shouldn't have told us about the buttons - you should've done a Spot the Difference competition!! I notice the second little mouse has been clutching a hot water bottle to his tummy...
Enchanting cards.

Your cards are so sweet! Love the stamp and especially love that you used buttons and ribbons to go along with the theme!

Always love anything with a sewing motif, I love House Mice too! So this was a delightful card to my eyes. Love how you used that dp with this image, adding the buttons. Great use of the S/B to frame this image too. TFS
