A Little Hello

     I'm assuming that little mice would say little "hellos", don't you agree?


I started with the inspiration photo from Lawn Fawnatics
for my colors.  Bright colors are my favorites for anything summer.

     The image is from Toadstool Printables and I colored it with ProMarkers before cutting it with a stitched die from Lawn Fawn.  The sentiment was also cut with a Lawn Fawn die but I had to adjust a square die so that it cut a rectangle.  I love being able to use dies in ways they weren't originally designed.

     I inked the edges of the image, then found a scrap of red polka dot dp (Stampin' Up) and adhered it directly to the card front, then layered on the image piece.  A polka dot bow was all I needed to finish this CAS card.

     Challenges:
Crafting from the Heart
Creative Inspirations
Get Creative
I {heart} ProMarkers
Pammie's Inky Pinkies
Sweet Stampers
Word Art Weds.

     I'm still on target for doing a card each day for the week-long, Christmas-in-July daily challenges at Catch the Bug so stop back later today for my post about that card.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

Wow! FABULOUS coloring and shading, Connie, with WONDERFUL color choices. I can definitely see the Lawn Fawnatics colors coming through. I cannot begin to comprehend how you colored those thin little tails without any bleeding or boo-boo's outside the lines! Great shading, my friend. hugs, de
