House Mouse Christmas and Get Well Cards

Hi, guys!  Hope all is well on your end. I wanted to tell you some fun news with you today.  I was one of the 12 winners on Tim Holtz's blog for my December Tag that I shared here the other day!  I was so excited to learn this on New Year's Day!  What a fun way to start my New Year!   Being able to make all 12 tags was so much fun and I am looking forward to starting the new ones for 2013!

Today I will be sharing two cards I made using stamps by House Mouse.  The first one up is the Christmas card I made for my husband.

Stamps: House Mouse, Anna Griffin
Paper: Papertrey Ink, Gina K (White), Echo Park
Ink: Distress Ink, Memento Black
Misc.: Snowflake Button, Tag Punch, Brad, Copic Markers

The next card up I made for my husband to send to a co-worker who fell ill over the holiday.  I think this image is adorable and hope it will bring a smile to the recipient's face.  I used colored pencils and gamsol to color the image.

Stamps: House Mouse
Paper: Gina K (White), Stampin' Up
Ink: Archival Black, Distress Ink
Misc.: Prisma Colored Pencils, Gamsol, Ribbon, Corner Rounder

These were fun to make.  I love to use these stamps and do so when time allows for coloring.  For the first one I used Copic Markers which gave them a bolder look.  The second one got a softer look by using the colored pencils.

Have a great day!  Until next time!

I love these! I would definitely feel better if somebody gave me that get well card.

I think get well cards are really needed right now. I know so many sick people, and for some reason, it seems to linger. I've been sick for over 2 weeks now!
