Happy Hopper and House Mouse Babies

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends, family and followers and to my U.S. followers Happy Columbus Day for those that celebrate. To all other followers just have an awesome day!!!

I was asked by a friend to made a baby boy card to put with her gift for her new grandson and of course I went into overdrive and made three. The one she chose I didn't get a picture of,  I forget quite often to take a picture of the cards I make for others, I've seen me tear the envie apart to photograph it on more than one occasion. Here are the two extras I now have.

Using the awesome sketch from the Crooked Stamper Sketch Challenge #9  I made a simple card with the cute House Mouse Design Stamp, I purchase a die "it's a boy girl" and this was my chance to try it out.  I used two embossing folders, Argyle and Swiss Dots. Finished it off with a tiny button brad and some baker's twine. On to the second card.

This time I used a Happy Hopper, isn't the bunny adorable, I love this stamp. I used the argyle cuttlebug embossing folder for this one and some more baker's twine. The congratulation is a gold peel and stick sentiment, I wanted the bunny to shine. There are no sentiments on the inside as I packed up a lot of my stamps and took them home last trip, we will be closing the cottage soon as it is getting cooler and we don't want to have a freeze up.

I am entering this in

Thanks for visiting me today and have a wonderful fun day with friends and family.

Cuteness!!!! I tend to photograph my cards and forget to send them. At least your card was delivered.

PS: I may or may not have an abundance of those peel-and-stick gold word stickers. I just can't seem to bring myself to toss them.
