Pop-ular Fun

I've been rockin' and rollin' with stamps and coloring images this week. Oh yes, I DO indeed have other things to do. This has been a guilty pleasures week for me playing in my stamp room. My hubby has been away on business and so my critters and I have had a ball just goofing off.

I should also admit that I'm a messy stamper. I ALWAYS stamp more than one image when I'm playing with my stamps. I do this in hopes that I'll than one card made. Also, I know that 9 times out of 10 I'll mess up the image and have to start over. But this time I got two nicely colored and stamped House Mouse images colored so I' have two more Birthday Cards for my growing stash of cards.
These two cards are very similar, just differences in colors of the background paper and the balloons I attached as accoutrement.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Stampabilities House Mouse "Pop"-ular Fun and Stampin' Up! Sentiment from the set Lots of Thoughts
Ink: Stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black for the image, Whispers Archive Azure Seas Blue for the sentiment and the image is colored with Copic Markers
Designer Paper: Martha Stewart
Accessories: Nestibilities rectangle and deckled rectangle dies, Nestibilities circle and scalloped circle dies, Silver stickles, Clear dimensional glaze, Small balloons and scraps of ribbon for the bows.

I just never tire of my House Mouse stamps and this is an old one but not one I've used as often as others so I thought it was time to ink it up again.

Woo hoo...we are having a heatwave today! It is +2 Celcius! Lovin' it!

Here's hoping y'all have a super weekend!
