You Make Me Smile

Hi guys

As it's Good Friday I'm at home and found a little crafty time this afternoon.  I've been wanting to enter the Smile challenge at Addicted to CAS and it's closing in a few hours so I got a wriggle on and used a stamp I've had for years and only ever used once before.

Here it is...

I stamped the little mouse and coloured her in with FlexMarkers.  I then curved and stamped the sentiment from the same set to follow the curve of the mouse's tail.  I used a pierced square die to cut out the stamped images and mounted it using foam tape onto a panel I've embossed with a diagonal stripe embossing folder.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: MFT - Millie the Mouse
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Coloured with FlexMarkers
  • Die: MFT Die-namics - Pierced Square Stax
  • Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up by Sizzix (name unknown)

Challenge entries:

Addicted to CAS - Challenge #108 - Smile
Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #237 - Make Your Mark
Crafty Catz - Challenge #366 - Anything Goes with optional twist of Animals

Thanks so much for visiting.  I'll be back tomorrow with details of the next challenge at Less is More.  Hope to see you then.


  1. On my way! This card is so dang adorable! I could think of a dozen people I would love to send it to. Unfortunately, this little mouse must be discontinued as MFT no longer has it on their web site. So I guess I'll just have to save your post so I can look at it every once and awhile, and smile. Thanks so much for sharing.

  2. Oh....this is just too darn cute!
