Little Mouse Thanks You

I spent another few days away from my craft supplies, just before Easter, but I always take something to play with! Mainly I was trying to finish my swaps for the South Pacific Stampin' Up! Convention  held in Melbourne in May, but I also slipped Life in the Forest and some card and ink pads into my basket. I had lots of ideas running around my head, and it is usually a bit frustrating because I am missing something to finish them off and often have to sketch out the idea, so I recall it when it is time to put those stamped images to use. I have a lot of quirky ideas for this little mouse, here he is, perhaps, sending a thank you for saving his life.
I've simply stamped in black Stazon and water coloured with an Aqua Painter and ink pressed from the stamp pad onto the lid. You need the tiniest bit. The clouds are done by sponging some ink with a Sponge Dauber using a scalloped circle as a moveable mask.
I stamped out the 'Gee, Thanks' from Just Sayin' because you can barely see the 'Thank You' from Itty Bitty Banners on the Basic Grey card.
The On Film Framelits were perfect for this little snapshot of Life In A Forest.
Washi Tape & a paperclip (Essentials Hardware Clips), are the finishing touches.

It's a few days since I published this blog and I have no idea what was wrong with me when I did. I forgot to acknowledge the Paper Players sketch and Washi Tape challenge, which helped me put this card together. Apologies, Nance and everyone else at The Paper Players. :( so sorry.

Hope you like my funny little thank you card and thank you for passing by my blog



  1. Rachel, this is darling! Love these little critters and the fun use of washi tape to anchor all your elements. Thanks for joining in the washi fun at The Paper Players!

  2. Aww, this is so cute, Rachel! I have this stamp set but can never quite figure out what to do with it so I thank you for the inspiration. I love how the whole thing looks like it is held together by a few pieces of washi tape. Thanks so much for joining us this week at The Paper Players!

  3. Fun way to use that washi, and I love your little scene, too! Thanks for playing with the Players this week!
