Thank you, Mammaw!

This card is for Wyatt's Mammaw (or my mom-in-law). We not only had a great time in TX visiting her, but she also got me lots of goodies, including, but not limited to, the outfit that I'm wearing today, and this adorable stamp! She's just starting out stamping, and bought this stamp, while we were at Hobby Lobby. I asked her to stamp a few, while I was there, and must have looked real pitiful, because she ended up giving it to me! :) I love this, and am starting to love all House Mouse stamps! Again, they're so much fun to color! I also got this AC paper at Hobby Lobby, along with several other pieces. (Only $0.30 a piece! You don't find AC paper for that in my area!)

I sponged the main image and added the brads and photo corner (Cuttlebug). All in a Row (one of my absolute FAV SU! stamp sets) was used for the dots above and below the main image. I rounded the top corner, and added some yummy ribbon.

Well, that's about it for now. I'd better finish this up since Wyatt is liable to run in at any moment (outside with Daddy) with another emergency. Hope your evening is more relaxing!

  1. That is simply adorable!!! Lucky you to have such a nice mother - in- law! Your coloring is awesome and the patterned paper you chose is perfect!

  2. Gotta love House Mouse! Very cute. :0)

  3. You make me love the House Mouse, but for some reason I dont feel I could do the coloring justice. KWIM
    I need to practice. But beautiful card, also could you show me that pitiful look, I'ld like to see if it works for me as well as you. jk

  4. I have never really like House Mouse stamps, but seeing you use them makes me want to get some. But my colouring would never be that good *sigh*.

  5. Cute card. I love House Mouse

  6. Hi Kirsten!!

    I LOVE the color combos on this card!! SO super beautiful!! When I used to work, I spent some time in Houston and visited a Hobby Lobby. It's a great place =) Unfortunately, I wasn't addicted to this fabulous craft back then or I would have taken full advantage!! We've got good stores here up North but it's always such fun to see what other places carry!

    I hope you're having a creative weekend!!

    =) Meredith

  12. It is Beautiful, I don't usually like house mouse but you give it new meaning

  13. Hello! Just wanted to let you know that this card is beautiful and at our Hobby Lobby paper goes half off about once a month and it's 25cents! I love hobby lobby and you can print out a 40% off coupon every other week. Glad you got to visit one while in Texas. Take care.

  14. OMG! The strawberries look so real! What a great job you did coloring them! My coloring pale's in comparison. Great job! TFS
