A Mouse Called Rosie Lee

Hello.  Welcome.  Found a toad in the basement today.  It blinked sleepily at me whilst trying to negotiate it's way around some bags of potatoes.  I carried it to the pond.  It must be spring. 

I used the lovely sketch from Repeat Impressions and a stamp from High Hopes called Tea For Two.   I was inspired by Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #300 (colours and theme).   I coloured with distress inks and my waterbrush.  I used Sizzix dies to cut the aperture and the oval.  The basecard is MME patterned paper.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  5. What an absolutely fun card! And very pretty & oh so cute.

  6. Love the colors on your cute card. A toad in the basement? Guess he found a great place to shelter out the winter.

  7. I love your card and I am glad you got the toad to the pond too.

  8. So fun!! Great take on our sketch, I love how you used those little curly-q's for the circle elements. They really mimic the curls in the mice tails. Thanks for playing with The House that Stamps Built.

  9. I love how nonchalantly you say that you carried the toad out...I'd have been 'croaking'! Great card, Gail! You rocked the sketch, as always! I knew you'd come through 😉 Thanks for joining us at The House that Stamps Built! 🐸🐸🐸

  10. This is so cute! Super fun! Thanks so much for joining Cupcake Inspirations for our 400th Challenge!

  11. I don't think I would have handled your toad situation so calmly...then again if I saw your mouse card in real life, I wouldn't handle that so well either...but in a card, those mice in tea cups are just too cute!!! Thank you for joining us for our #400th challenge celebration!!!

  12. Very cute! Thanks for joining us over at The House That Stamps built!

  13. Love your Rosie Lee mice - and what a great take on the sketch this week. So happy you joined us at The House that Stamps Built this week.
