Keeping Cool

Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I am so happy to be a guest designer for House Mouse Designs for May and June. I just love using all the fun House Mouse stamps and this stamp is no exception. I love lemonade and it looks like this little mouse is really "into" it! LOL! The first House Mouse challenge is Summer Time. The summers here in South Carolina are hot and sticky, so keeping cool is a top priority. What better way to keep cool than by having a tall cold glass of lemonade!

I stamped the image, colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and cut it out using the Spellbinders Small Circle die. I added Diamond Glaze to the image to make it look like glass. I placed different sizes of double sided tape across the bottom of the card and added purple glitter. The patterned paper at the top of the card was embossed using an embossing folder. The card was finished off by adding yellow ribbon, a bow and enamel dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
