FMS256 with Super-Cute Merry Mice

Jen Timko, our incredibly gifted designer, is hosting this week at Freshly Made Sketches and she’s created a wonderful sketch to work with.  I especially like how it can accommodate larger sentiments.  However, I chose to use Merry Mice for my card.  I swayed from Jen’s sketch slightly… I didn’t take a last look and I made my banner go to the top of the card.  Oops.  I hope it’s close enough!


I love this fun stamp set!  I love to color and this set is perfect for some in-front-of-the-TV coloring.  I used watercolor pencils for this image; I think they’re the easiest way to color and shadow a small image.

Happy stamping!

    Such a cute little guy! I can almost hear it singing a lovely Christmas carol : “Ding, dong, ding, dong, one seems to hear words of good cheer, that is their song, all caroling with joyful tones, …”. A lovely take on the sketch Cindy

    I just adore this little fellow! Your coloring is perfect and he is fabulous on the banner. And being a rebel works for me, especially when the result is this great!

    Reading your post made me realise that I took my banner to the top of the card as well! We can be rebels together 🙂 Your card is adorable – that mouse is just too cute.
