House Mouse Challenge 285

Happy Friday Everyone!


So today I an joining in with my other favorite mouse
House Mouse of course

So this is for 
the theme was

So I picked this stamp think of warm weather.
Do not get me wrong, I love the cold!
I would love cold and snow, but alas
all we have in the area of Georgia 
I live in isCold and Rainy!
So it makes some of our farm chores really hard
to get finished! We are starting to build 
our new pig pen area.
I am getting my seed order together, and 
planning where everything is going.
This year we are planting an acre of colored bell 
peppers to sell at the farmer's market.
Once the pig pens are done we have major 
repairs to our chicken coops as we get ready
for more chickens!! Farm chores are never done!

OK on to the reason you are here...

I wanted to use bright and cheery colors.
I needed a break from the gloomy weather outside. So I started with a Happy Hoppers stamp. They are the friends of House Mouse. I colored her with Copic markers. I then used Bright Buttercup as my base card 4.25 x 5.5 inches, A2 size. The I took a piece of Hibiscus Burst cut it using my Stitched Rectangle dies, then ran it through my Big Shot using an embossing folder from Darice. 
I then cut a piece of pattern paper using an oval die. So here is where my fun started. I applied double stick tape to white card stock, then using a flourish die I ran it through my Big Shot so I could easily apply the glitter. I am not a fan of weeding, but because the paper was a bit thicker than normal, I had to do some. I do like how it turned out!
