  1. Such an adorable card! Love the kitty! Hugs, Robin

  2. So adorable. Great instructions. Thanks!

  3. Another humorous, sweet House Mouse scene that immediately creates a smile!

  4. I have the old timey Sizzix Red die cut machine. I'm wondering if I got the appropriate shims, if I use the die cut you mention in this list of items. I betcha though, I need to get a modern die cutter machine. What do you use for this project? Love the kitty cat and the use of the ribbon! Thanks!

    1. If it's the red, narrow machine I doubt these dies
      would work. I have the Big Shot and the Vagabond (electric) and love them. I'd recommend those. Sorry for butting in.
      take care.

  5. Glad everybody is playing together so nicely.
    the coloring of the kitty is great.
    Wonderful card.
    thanks for sharing

  21. What a sweet card, Janelle! I think I need to have that HM image. Love the spring colors.

  22. What a cute stamp you selected to use; I love the House Mouse designs and I haven't seen this one before. I think it is my favorite; how often do you see a kitten playing with mice. You used a fabulous & unique job of layering your background pieces; it really catches one's eye after looking at the focal point and those are my favorite colors, turquoise & peach. You did a wonderful job of coloring the critters, especially the tough job doing the fur on the animals. It just all comes together so nicely; I love it!!
