SC172 Be Mine Mouse

Well we survived the snow blasting and the ice from yesterday. Didn't get as much as they said we would. Whew! So glad of that. But was so slippery today my dh got 2 miles out of town almost went in the ditch 7 times and said forget work. Called in and said he wasn't coming the roads was to bad. So he came home and later we snow blowed the drive way and in front of our house as the road plow still hasn't gone by. We are back drifted in the wind is really bad today. But we ended up with about 5 inches of snow and about 1/2 inch of ice. So today was a good day to stick around home and stamp.
This is the project I found for today. It is a sketch from SCS - SC172. I used a house mouse stamp again. This one is so cute, if you look closely he is cross-eyed. He has such personality.

Supplies needed & Directions:

Scrap pieces more or less of designer paper (patterned paper) You will need two designs. I got mine at that Dollar District in Alexandria. Love them both. Cut your pieces at 2 1/8 x 2 1/2 (2) of these and you will also need (2) cut at 2 1/8 x 3. Look at my sample for placement. So you end up needing one cut at 2 1/8 x 2 1/2 and one cut at 2 1/8 x 3 of one design of the patterned paper. And one cut the same of the other choice of designer paper.
WW card stock is cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half. Mount the cut designer pieces to the card as shown in the sample.
Choc. Chip Ribbon (SU) cut at 5 1/2 inches and place in the middle of the card, covering that seam.
Stamp image with Stazon Black on WW card stock. Use gamsol and colored pencils on mine, you can use what you are most comfy with. Color in image and trim to size. Then with a piece of Choc. Chip card stock cut 1/4 inch larger and mount to the stamped image. I used pop dots to mount my stamped layered image to the card.
Pretty simple and quick. Hope you enjoyed today's project. And those of you that was in this snow and ice storm we got, I hope you faired out and didn't get it to bad. I heard some towns further north of us got 18 inches. Certainly happy it wasn't me.
Stay tune tomorrow for a SU image card.
Angel hugs.
