Dew Drops

     OK, I know winter has really just arrived but for all of you who are already shivering under a thick blanket of snow, I want to bring you a breath of hope that spring will show itself.  :-D

     This sweet image is from House Mouse, stamped on a scrap of white CS and colored with polychromos pencils.  I based the design on this sketch from The Outlawz.

     The scalloped die is from Sizzix and the stitched circle die (also a scrap) is by Die-namics.  I layered those cuts on top of each other and mounted them onto a rectangle of green CS.  All of that went onto a pre-made, pale lilac, card base.  I used a corner punch by Fiskars to cut the purple corners (scraps) and then tied double-bowtie bows from gingham ribbon.

     Finally, I punched the last bit of scrap left over from making the corner bits and made the two tiny butterflies which are attached to the image.


     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Oh Connie, this is totally adorable! No wonder you said a 'yes please' for the House Mouse Mistletoe stamp on offer today!

I love that this is offering hope of better weather to come - beautiful stamp and a beautiful design as well.
