Shy Mouse

     Most of you know by now how much I adore the digis from QKR Stampede and I'm especially fond of the mice and the bears.  For our newest challenge, starting today, we have a theme of "Critters" so I get to show off another sweet mouse, this one called "Shy Mouse" digi 24163.  I did a card which will go in the box of cards I'll deliver to children's hospitals for Send a Smile 4 Kids.  (Did I remember to tell all of you that I'm one of the most recent collection and distribution points for SAS4K?  I collect for and deliver to three different hospitals in the Central Valley of California.  Check out the SAS4K site if you want to make cards for hospitalized kids.)

     I colored this Shy Mouse with ProMarkers, then cut and corner punched a rectangle which would fit into the die cut frame (Spellbinders.)  The little butterfly is also a die cut and is embossed.  I added a sprinkle of glitter across the wings.  I tied a bow from pink ribbon, adding it to her hair as a complement to the one on her tail.  The final touch --  the two teeny-tiny buttons on the bows and the gems on the butterfly.

     OK, dig out those digis with critters on them (birds, rodents, bugs, animals) and come play along.  You can use any digi or stamp but remember if you use a QKR Stampede image (digi or rubber), your entry goes into a separate drawing for a QKR winner.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
