Boy howdy! Are you into your Christmas cards yet? I always tell myself I'm gonna get started early. I always fail myself! :( I'm gonna stop telling myself that! lol
Here's ONE of my Christmas cards:
This is for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #159 Use Silver / Gold. I've used Warm Reception House Mouse (HM) stamp. I colored the image with Copic markers. The silver is in the ribbon. I colored the lantern silver and also colored the sky a grayish silver looking snowy day sky. lol You know what I mean! I lived up north for many years and this is how I remember the sky looking on cold, snowy days.
After all that, it is with a heavy heart I'm letting you know this is my final project as Guest Designer for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
To be honest, before creating my first project with a HM stamp, I've really just used them for decorative purposes! lol I kid you not! I purchased these because I loved the images and had every intention of using them. As it is with all hobby enthusiasts, I got carried away purchasing ALL sorts of other stamps. Once they overtook my office space, I unmounted all other stamps but not my HM mouse! These made for such a pretty display. I've had some of my stamps for many years! It wasn't until this year that I decided to use the Bewitching Pumpkins because I thought it would make a great Halloween card for a friend and I was right! :)
Now that I've used FIVE of my HM stamps, I've got to keep the momentum up! Especially since of late, I've mainly used digital images because I'm a DT member on some design teams for digital stamps. Using the HM stamps was even more fun because it involved rubber stamping! I hadn't done that in so long and had forgotten how much fun it is!
So with a sad heart, I bid adieu and hope to see you on a future HMFMC challenge. I plan to keep playing along with them!
Thanks for stopping by!
