     I've been coloring House Mouse stamps for the last couple of days and am now in the process of turning them into cards.  This one with the bunny and mouse is one of my favorites.

     I colored this one with ProMarkers and gel inks, then fussy cut it and inked the edges with a ProMarker.  The background frame was cut from a scrap bit of dp with a Spellbinders 'Romantic Rose' die.  I dug through my stash of ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and wrapped the card front with that lovely, flowered ribbon.  I printed and hand cut the sentiment, then added one of my hand-sewn bows, this time leaving it white instead of dying it to match one of the colors on the card.

     Again, I've used one of my favorite techniques - making a rather CAS card look much more complex by using an intricate die cut.

     My goodness, we're halfway through the work week already!  How did that happen so quickly?  Where did all my crafting time go this week?  Sigh...
