A wee rodent problem here...

I am not sure how I would react if a mouse popped up from my birthday cake but it sure looks cute on the card!

This stamp is called Birthday Cake Mouse and it's by Whimsy Stamps. I used my plain old watercolours and loads of glitter to perk it up.  The banners are from Whimsy Celebration Pennants set, stamped on patterned paper and heat embossed.
 The papers I used are from Basic Grey Life Of The Party pad. Flowers are made with Marianne's Floral die set. I also used Whimsy Double Scallop Border die.
And now a bit of enabling - have you noticed that Quixotic is now carrying new Authentique 6x6 paper pads? Boy they are lovely - I think I absolutely NEED that blue one - it's so hard to find papers in those hues for some reason!
Now isn't that just lush!

My another awwwww-moment are  Rick St Dennis bears and clowns - so quirky and fun and fabquality of artwork!!

Thanks a million for popping by and happy crafting!
Annika
