Washday for the Mice

The House Mouse & Friends challenge #220 is "something old, nothing new." This has to be the oldest House Mouse stamp in my collection. I rarely use it because it's a large image and doesn't have many options for adding a sentiment - but it is cute! The cardstock was in my stash and I believe it was purely pomegranate from SU! if memory serves me correctly. I added a thin strip of not quite navy to the right side just for a little interest and to stretch the image to an A2 sized card.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

I have a large one also. I hardly use it cause it is huge. Love these guys playing on the wash line!

It's a HM image I'd never seen before. I hear you about the 'large stamps' which can sometimes be difficult to use properly. You aced it with this cutie. It doesn't really need a sentiment on the outside. Wonderful colors & made me smile to see these critters. Liked the way you've added the side strip of c/s to enhance the front of the card. TFS & Have a great wkend.

Some of those huge stamps are just too fun to part with, but really... what do you do with them? You made a nice card with it is what you did with it! This images bothers me because of the frayed spot in the clothesline. EEK!
