You're a Purr-fect Friend - House Mouse

Looks like the kitty on my card!

Hi, Friends.....

I don't play with my House Mouse stamps nearly often enough....and I don't know why! I noticed their current challenge was closing very soon, though, so thought I'd try to squeak-squeak in with an entry. I adore all the HM images, but my faves have kitties also. Love this retired one with the meece snuggled up with their friend, the barn kitty, in the warm straw. I used soft peach and gray to contrast with the aged barn wood to keep the card from being too dark.

Products used include:
Stampendous - House Mouse Designs - Cat Nap
Versafine ink in Smokey Gray
Clear embossing powder
Spectrum Noir alcohol markers
My Favorite Things - Cat-itude stamp set
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Audrey Cutaways die set
Twine from a W&W package

Hope you like my sweet card. Thank you so much for stopping by!! Stay safe and warm from all the winter storms.

  5. Awww, of course you would have a House Mouse stamp with a kitty at center stage! This is just the cutest little scene, and I like to think that that cat is so well fed that he doesn't even feel tempted to nibble at the mice!
