A House Mouse


a day keeps the blues away! LOL! I am anxiously awaiting for a box to come with all my new House Mouse Stamps! OMG I can't wait to get this one! I have quite a collection of HM stamps and just keep adding to it.
they've come out with some new ones, I think that they are called gruffles, but not too sure about the name. I do know that they are bears and oh so adorable.
I love the thrill of coloring in something so detailed and then seeing it all put together. This one is called Special Delivery. Colored in with many prisma color pencils and finished off with gamasol. that stuff really is magic! You really can't see it in the picture unless you enlarge it, but all the rain drops have glitter on them. IRL this is a fabulous looking card.
If you haven't played with a hm stamp yet and would like to, please let me know. I would be more than happy to send you a stamped image to play with! You'll fall in love. I did!
Thanks for checking in!

Oh Lorraine - this is just precious! I would love to take you up on the offer of a stamped image! I don't think I'll do it justice like you did, but I'd sure like to try! Thanks!! My addy is on the SBS yahoo site.

Oh my gosh Lorraine! That is just the cutest thing! Those little fellers are just too adorable!

I'd love to take you up on your offer... I don't own many stamps yet and none of these !

Lorraien ~ I too am in LOVE with HM stamps. I have quite a few and need to pull them out and show them off. I did click and enlarge this one and the glittered raindrops were the first thing I saw. Your coloring is amazing. Did the flowers in the background come with this stamp? If so, I gotta have it. Thanks for your comment. When I first read it, I thought it said YOU ARE on the DT for Flourishes. I got so excited I thought they haven't contacted me yet...At any rate, This was a huge compliment coming from someone as talented as you are, so thanks again :)

So pretty Lorraine! I can totally see the sparkle on the rain drops. I bought my first house mouse images when I was in the States a couple of weeks ago and haven't really had a chance to play yet. Luckily I get to look at yours for inspiration!
