A Really Mice Blog Post with Stampendous

I'm back again this week with another House-Mouse project. As I was finishing this one up I noticed something that I think is rather funny. I chose two stamps this week that have sleeping mice in them.
It must be subliminal to what I believe the effect the holidays have on most of us. You know I'm 99 percent right.

Anyway, here is my card for today.

I used House-Mouse Hearth Nap and colored with Copic Markers, then added layers of fun cardstock by My Mind's Eye with a ribbon bow from Creative Impressions and some embellishments to complete the card.

I have an apology to make. I looked high and low for my list of markers that I used and haven't found it yet. If I come across it I will definitely add them to the post.
