Caroling Mouse — FMS

It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our friend who flies the friendly skies, Jennifer Timko, is our hostess.  Take a look at the great sketch she has for us:

fms-final-267-001I wanted to use my favorite Christmas set from the Holiday Catalog again before it retires soon.  It’s the Merry Mice set and it’s currently 20% off, so if you don’t have it, you may want to grab it while you can.

caroling-mouseThe mice in this set are so cute!  And they’re fun to color.  I used an aquapainter and a blender pen on this one.  The Falling Snow embossing folder was used as well.


We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch as we love to see what you create!   Meanwhile, be sure to journey over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  I’ll be back tonight for the current Artisan Design Team’s last blog hop.  Sniff!  Sniff!  Thanks for stopping by!

The Only Kind of Cute Mouse — FMS255

We take turns being the hostess over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week I have the privilege of creating and sharing the sketch for the week.  This is what I came up with:


Whenever we go to the pet supply store, my daughters always love to look at the mice, hamsters, and guinea pigs.  I have heard so many pleas to buy one for a pet, but I have never given in.  I love our dog.  I could love a cat (my son is allergic).  But a rodent?  No way!!  They give me the heebie-jeebies!  My daughters think they are cute, but in my book the only kind of cute mouse is the animated mouse (like in “Cinderella”) or the cute mice in the Merry Mice stamp set.



This cute little critter was stamped on some Shimmery White card stock and colored with a blender pen and some ink pads — Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, and Smoky Slate.  A little clear Wink of Stella was added on the nose, ornament, and star.


We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch!  Meanwhile, be sure to zip on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for  your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
