Unintentional Mouse Theme!

The last two papercraft projects of the weekend before the sewing machine comes out!

First is a snowy mice digistamp from Dearie Dolls.  It's a really cute image - I love the hanging hearts and the oversized button :)  Coloured with Promarkers on Centura Pearl cardstock and mounted onto Kanban and ancient Sizzix Sizzles card/paperstock.  The red star gems I bought recently - I clearly didn't look at them because the quality is awful; they're incredibly plastic-y, but I think you can get away with it on cards for distant relatives you haven't seen in decades...

Secondly, a Thanksgiving inspired recipe - Pumpkin Pie.  We don't celebrate Thanksgiving in England, but we do like pie ;)  Honestly, with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year I don't know how you do so many holiday preps so close together! I can't find the link for the image used - apologies if its yours.  I don't have a pie coloured promarker...or a pumpkin coloured one either for that matter, so I've used blends to approximate them - love how you can layer them up!

  1. Adorable projects! It's tough eating all of the yummy food during the consecutive holidays in the U.S, but we make do!! LOL! Thanks for playing along with the Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge this week.

  2. That's really sweet of you to join in our Thanksgiving challenge even though you don't celebrate it yourself. Your recipe card turned out really cute! Your mouse card is also adorable, and your rationale for using what you described as poor quality gems literally made me LOL because it sounds like something I would do! ;)
    I hope you'll join us again for future Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenges!

  3. I agree with Patricia, your rationale for using the red gems made me laugh too. It's an adorable card. All the yummy foods served during the holidays is why most Americans have weight loss as a New Year's resolution. I really like your recipe card. Great job on the challenge. What an adorable card!! I love your turkey. Thanks so much for playing along with us in this week's Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge.
