Another House Mouse – Chamomile Nap

You will find I love House Mouse stamps.  When I say love-I mean I have a difficult time passing them up.  They are just so cute!

The one I have for you today is Chamomile Nap.  I thought it perfect for a friend’s birthday card.  A birthday should be a day of rest and napping.  Well, it should–but we know it rarely is.

This stamp is colored with Copic markers and I am very satisfied with the results.   I don’t remember the markers I used since this card was done months ago, but in the future I’ll try and make a note of the markers I use.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to scan and cut the stamp.  There would have been no way I could have hand cut this to look this nice.  The scan and cut feature on the Cameo is awesome!

The card itself is one I found on Sue Wilson’s blog and really loved the design and thought it perfect to go with the stamp.  However, for the life of me, I cannot find it on her blog to link it here.  I would love to be able to give credit where credit is due and link to the instructions, so if you know the page where the instructions—-please, please, please place the link in the comments so I can post it.

The dies used are Sue Wilson dies, Classic Adorned Rectangles and the Weaving dies.  The weaving die were really fun to play with.  Just cut out the dies and weave the smallest pieces together from each set.  It is a little tedious, but I liked the results.

Here is a break down of what I used.

I would love to hear your comments on what you think on this card!

Have a great day!  And, don’t forget to try and put a little crazy in it, too!  It keeps people on their toes!

I am such a proud mama.  My baby girl has received her Bachelor of Science Criminal

Watching her walk across the stage was one of the proudest moments of my life.  She worked so hard.  My husband and I could hardly contain ourselves with the pride.

I do have to say, at first, I was annoyed the university scheduled the ceremony on Mother’s Day weekend.  But, what better gift could a mother receive than her child receiving a hard earned degree.


On Mother’s Day, my daughter went with her dad to see her grandmother and my son treated me and my husband to lunch for Mother’s Day.  I am so proud of my son, he is a veteran, and now works at a job which he excels.

This was not a weekend of crazy, it was a weekend of pride in my children.

I do hope all the mothers (including fur baby mothers) had a wonder weekend.  And, this is to include the women who do not have biological children, but are vital in children’s lives.  You, too, should be celebrated at Mothers.

Sending love to everyone.
