House Mouse Inchie Party

Here are my Inchies for the latest House Mouse swap over on SCS. We could opt to enter the ATC, Nickleback (twinchies), or Inchie swap. I totally opted to go with inchies because I love them!! My friend, Jessica, sent me some awesome Studio g stamps which included this awesome birthday hat. I decided that this little mouse would be heading to a birthday celebration!!
I stamped just the head of this house mouse and colored him in with pencil crayons and punched him out. Then, I stamped the hat onto scrap paper and again on the pink polka dot paper. I cut out the hat and paper pieced the pink part of the hat. I added some blue stickles to the swirly section of the hat! Once that was dry, I added the hat to the mouse image. I finished the inchie with some blue ink painted around the mouse image and a sentiment. Papertrey Ink's set called Mixed Messages is the best set because they have a bunch of itty bitty sentiments in the set....perfect size for an inchie!!
Thanks for dropping in,

This little mouse looks adorable in her party hat and how fun that it pokes 'out of the box'. I may have to try that with my inchie. Great minds think alike -- I've already chosen a 'Mixed Messages' sentiment!!

Terrific inchie, Donelda!

Did I mention that the blue outline really makes this mouse stand out? Great effect!

Great blog, too -- I left a 'One Lovely Blog Award' for you on my blog:

It won't hurt my feelings if you can't play (I could only award 3 of the seven), but I wanted to let you know how much I admire your blog!

Donelda, you are 6 inchies closer to the 100 inchie swap. Awesome inchies!! I know 100 seems daunting, but if you make one inchie for each day,you'll get there. The end date is 3 months away.... think about it :)
