Relaxin'

Hi bloggy buddies!

I am sitting here with hubby while he watches the new season of The Ultimate Fighter. They are doing the qualifying rounds right now to see who gets in the house. He likes to show me the good fights or the fast knock outs, so I figured I would sit in here with the laptop and blog hop and semi pay attention the the TV..lol shhhhh.

I was about to make some blog rounds when I realized I had not posted my latest House Mouse card. I just love these little critters. The one I used is actually a Happy Hopper but they are all House Mouse stamps to me..lol I made this one for a Spa swap on Paper Craft Planet. I thought I was going to go a totally different direction and use a different stamp even, but this is the one that inspired me.. so I went with it. I was excited to get to use the cheesecloth for the first time as well as my drippy goo punch I got from my nephew for Christmas this year. I just love how versatile this stamp is. It can be water ( like on here), snow, blood... I am sure some others that I can not think of... oh maybe some drippy batter or something on a card with a baking theme? Anyway, now I am rambling about the punch..lol I guess it is time to show the card.



I had fun coloring this stamp, especially the tub he is in. I had fun trying to get the rust effect on the metal bands, and trying to get a weathered look to the wood. 

Thank you so much for stopping by my little piece of blogland and I hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Hi Tracy, I noticed you stopped over at my blog recently and left a lovely comment about my bunnies. Thanks for that. I thought I would return the favour and take a peek back her again. I have to wonder if this is one of my bunnies chillaxin' over at your house???

I got inky this Easter weekend and created this card. I bought this stamp awhile back from Walmart online of all places. I knew I loved the ...
