Everytime I make a card using a House Mouse stamp I immediately think of two of my friends, Nise and Deborah, both of whom refer to my House Mice as "rat" or "vermin" or "rodent" cards. It makes me laugh everytime. But come on ladies...aren't these cute little mousies?
The challenge over at HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS for this week was to use paper piercing on your card. When my husband saw this card and I told him the challenge requirement he laughed and said, "You always do go a bit overboard!" True enough, this is a lot of piercing, but it was fun to do and I don't use this ornare piercing template often enough. Besides, it was perfect for this image with the oval center.
I probably would have added machine stitching to this card but with all of that piercing there no longer was any room or space to stitch.
This is the year of baby girls for my family and friends. I have two newborn baby girls amongst my family and friends so I decided to add pink shoe laces to these sweet vermints.
I hope everyone is staying warm during this exceptionally cold, snowy and icy winter across most all of North America. To my friends across "the big pond" what is your weather like this winter? (Summer to my Aussie pals).
