You'd think by this title and the lack of blog posts that this is what I've been doing for the past few weeks :)  Nope, I've been traveling - a new destination (blog post to come about that!) and an old one.....England!  I'm over my jet lag and anxious to get back to my stamping and this week's MFTWSC70 was a great place to start.

This cute little mouse was a perfect image as that's pretty much what I've been doing since I got home!  I stamped Do Not Disturb This Mouse in Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored her with copics.

The sketch is tweaked a bit - I flipped it and used the mirror image of it.  I had so much fun paper piecing the chair and footstool with my new LilybeeDesign HandMade paper.  I even added some tiny twinkles to the footstool for that authentic upholstered look :)  The sentiment fit perfectly on the First Place Award Ribbon die-namic and I added a button tied with a thread bow instead of the flower that was on the sketch. 

This card is going to my dear, sweet Auntie Shirley who I'm sure was wanting to do exactly like this little mouse after we!  I'm sure she was all tuckered out when we left!
