Ice Cream Mouse

In a bid to rid us of the Autumnal weather, I have a summery card to share today...featuring a Stampavie stamp by Tina Wenke called 'Mouse Holding Ice Cream', which I coloured using watercolour pencils. I made a patchwork background from snippets of papers from the 'Happy Day' pad by My Mind's Eye...distressing the edges a little, then adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen.

Challenges for this card:

What a jolly summery card to cheer up a grey day. That's a lot of icecream for a small mouse!

Brilliant card Helen - so cheerful to see on a grey, wet and cold morning like today's. Ha, I hope that little mouse is tottering off with all that ice cream to a BIG party for his friends :) Love the faux stitching - and what's a Cutter Bee? New one on me.

Hi Helen,
yes we all need some summer where ever we can get it as the weather has been so drab of late.
Love this wonderful snippets card.
The only prob is I would love a ice cream now.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
