It's mice being friends with you!

These cute little mice are from a new set from Scrapmagasinet called 106 Muse. This little set is just bursting with cuteness. I have only used one image from this set but have stamped the little girl mouse and then masked her to stamp her little friend beside her. I created the sentiment in MS word. The gorgeous papers are DCWV Citrus. I've been trying to get these papers now for about a month as I love their zesty colours. I have found a store in the UK which sells the DCWV papers in half stack with one of each 12" x 12" design. Half the stack - Half the price so you can buy more papers from the rest of the new DCWV range ;-). I have ordered twice now from Craftie Charlie and found their service excellent.

My sweet little mice are coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stamps for blending. I added a little stickles to their bows as there is also glitter on the papers. I've added some Sisal Ribbon to my card to add more fun texture. I have a great selection of Jute and Sisal Ribbon in my Etsy store in lots of gorgeous colours.

Before I go I thought I would leave you with a few more Danni and Bella photo's. Here you can see they are having fun playing babies! Ok you guys are probably thinking our poor kitten is being tortured but I think Bella does enjoy all the attention!

I'm sorry i've been neglecting you all over the last two days but it's taken so much time to sort out my store. I will be round to visit you to see what you have been creating later today :-)

Lovely card Nikki - those mice are so cute.

Danni & Bella look to be having fun - as Bella is part Bengal, she is probably loving all the attention. My two Bengals love attention of any kind - and know how to get it too!!!

I really like your combination of traditional ribbon and the fibers. Very cool. Wow, what great news about you stocking the stamps from Scrapmagasinet in your store.

Oh my gosh, those mice are stinkin' cute. I just love their shapes! I love the mix of colors of your card too. . .such a great combo!! As always, your coloring is beautiful.

Okay.. your daughter and your kitty are so cute. Your cat reminds me of my cat Dori. She slept with me last night. She loves to lick my arm like I'm her baby or something. Either that she likes the salty taste of my skin! LOL!! I was thinking of how much I love my cat. . .I seriously do and the picture of your daughter reminds me of how I adoringly look at my cat sometimes.
