Cat and Mouse LOVE!

This is an envelope card that I made using the instructions from SCS. This tutorial was in the weekly inking and it was a lot of fun to make. I forgot to run the envelope through the crimper and like a dumb dumb I couldn't understand why the top wouldn't go on,  LOL (: I used the Polka Dot roller from Glitz Designs as a background. I used Copics and SU markers for coloring my HM image. I have read many people complaining on Blogs that House Mouse is just too hard to color. I thought that too when I colored my first House Mouse. That is just not true, just like anything in paper crafting you have to understand  a few key tips for success. First only color the mice with light colors such as Stampin Up Creamy Caramel, colored pencils and a blender, or Copics in the lightest shades of light brown and gray. I really like W1 Warm Gray Copic and the "skin colors" for the face. House Mouse stamps are a BLAST to color when you follow these simple tips. Also sponging a soft caramel color around the image like I did on this card can add a great background. I will be adding several NEW house Mouse stamps to my website along with several tools. I hope you will give House Mouse a try! Check my store out for unique products and service from a fellow Blogging friend! 
Okay, this is our new kitten Princess Meow Meow and my daughters Fur Real Friend stuffed animal. This stuffed animal purrs like a kitten and moves too (: Our kitten thinks she has found  a friend! 
Princess was so happy to lay next to her new friend, and when we first found her she had her paws wrapped all around it! My daughter now calls her Fur Real Friend Prince Meow Meow LOL! I guess Princess has a new love. I thought you would enjoy this feline Love Story. 
Let me know what you think!!!!
