Cocoa Mouse Cards




Here's my favorite character to stamp and color - he's Cocoa mouse and he's from Sweet'n Sassy Stamps and he's sending some get well wishes. I colored the image with Copics, adding fluorescent blue to the band-aid, along with some tiny stars and hand-drawn squiggly lines above his "boo-boo." The paper is ancient, and I believe it's from the Wild Asparagus collection if memory serves me correctly. I die-cut the image with a Gina Marie stitched squares die.

The challenge at Cards in Envy this week is to use "stripes" so I'm entering this card there.

Lately I've been trying to make at least 2 of each card to fill up my stash, so I made a different one using this SNSS Cocoa mouse image:


This was done in shades of pink & brown, using snippets of matching designer paper, and a couple snippets of ribbon. I attached the ribbon with a pink brad and called this one done.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful week ahead.

Carol

What a sweet image. I really like both versions of this card. I like the papers you used, it always feels good to use up some older papers!

Both are amazing and will life someone's spirits the minute they set eyes on them. I would like to just start a card stash never mind add to one. LOL I will eventually. Have a good day.
