A mouse in the house

I think there is a mouse in my house. Well at least that's what I told my mom last night, because someone has been eating my biscuits. She laughed and said there are two. She and my sister had tea and wanted biscuits and raided my cupboard, lol!

Isn't this little mouse just the cutest, with his big fat belly. The chocolate is as big as he is, no wonder he can't move. Funny I felt like that the other night, I ate too much, I assume ;-) I couldn't move either, I didn't know how to sit, stand, lay down.... nothing helped. But lets move on to the card, cause you'll all think I'm a greedy chop.

I coloured the image, which is from Penny Black, with my prismacolor pencils, blended it with paper stumps, ooooooooooh talk about paper stumps. Paula sent me some stumps, they are the same as the ones she uses, from Taiwan! What amazing stumps they are! If only I could buy them here, they really do make a difference when blending.

The image was cut out with nesties, what else.... placed on 3D foam and I added, ooooh I nearly forgot, some clear glaze with my glaze pen Paula sent me! I guess you can all assume by now, I got a parcel from Paula again. It was GREAT!!! Full of goodies and lots of images!

I guess I better finish this post, it is nearly 8 o'clock and I've still got to shower, get dressed, give the gardener a list of things to do to keep him busy today.... it's not an easy task in winter to keep the gardener busy, mine ends up having to paint instead.

Don't forget it's Bellarific Friday today if you're interested to see all the beautiful creations with the latest sketch, then go to the Bella Blog.

Have a GREAAAAAAAAATE Friday!!!!

Hi there! My name is Rene' and I was so excited to come across your blog. I hadn't seen many fellow South African bloggers. You make gorgeous cards, I am green with envy of the devine stamps you have, how long have you been collecting them for? My stamps are mainly South African and Hero Arts. I am getting some Copics for my birthday next week, and I also hope to buy about 8 Magnolia stamps. Your blog is awesome! Hop over to mine and have a look. Bye

Oh Meani, this is beautiful! I love Penny Black's little critters stamps. Must dust mine out and color a few! You did an excellent coloring job with the Prismacolor pencils. I keep hearing about those Taiwan stumps, must try to find some! By the way you can send your gardener to my house, my plants need watering!!!! LOL
