One Happy Little Mouse

Have you ever seen such a happy looking fellow in your life? This little guy just won the cupcake lottery!

I saw this new image from the Whiff of Joy Party Animal line and HAD to have him. And I am so glad that I did. He is great fun to color with pencils or watercolor with inks. I don't think it is possible to color this image and not have fun.

I used Prismacolor Pencils and thinner for the image. I was totally lost when it came to a sentiment so I used the Happy Birthday to You from the new PTI set Around & About Sentiments. It doesn't show up very well but the cute little mouse is the star of this show anyway.

I have this great pad of DCWV paper called The Green Stack. It has adorable little birds and skunks and other woodland creatures in it. And it is 70% recycled paper so that is a good thing. The little critters is what really got me though. So anyway the pattern paper is from that pad. The green is SU and the Kraft and white is PTI.

I did something on this card that I have never done before. I put actual stitches, with a sewing machine on it. If my machine wasn't such a beast I think I would even do it more often. Kind of liked it.

Thanks for checking in. I am on some kind of blogging role... 3 posts in 3 days. Some kind of record for me. Lets see if I can keep it going and make it 4 for 4!
