Circus Mouse

Hello All, I can't believe that it's Friday already! What happens to the time?, as each day seems to pass quicker than the day before it!

Oh well, today, I've made this playful card 

I embossed some strips of green and blue cards, rounded the ends, and laid them side by side like the frill on a Big Top tent, over the top of some white glitter card. I stamped and coloured the mouse with my AP and markers, fussy cut him out, and placed him on 3D pads on the glitter card. The two hats he is juggling with were also placed on 3D pads so they look like they are in the air. The finishing touch was a strip of glitter card and the sentiment label.

The sketch comes from

the colours from

Stampin' Royalty want to see GLITTER

and lastly, Make My Monday, have the theme of CIRCUS

Supplies :
Card - Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Orange, Glitter, and base FMS
Stamps - House Mouse and Verve
Inks - Black Archival, Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, and Dusty Durango
Tools - Big Shot, Fancy Fan EF, Nestabilities, and Xcut Corner Rounder
Extras - 3D Pads                                       

Still no sign of the donkey foal, and fingers crossed ( if I could ) it wont happen till late tomorrow, when my sister is home from their holiday!

Thankfully, the heatwave we were having seems to have ended, only to be replaced with thunder storms, rain, and cold winds!. I seem to be the only one who is happy about it, as the drop in air pressure helps my RA.

Anyway, have a great weekend whatever you have planned, and I'll be back soon
