Zzzzz!


Hi, thanks for stopping by! I'm so excited by the new character in the MFT line-up - Mouse in the House is ADORABLE!

I have to tell you - today's card was made for a retiree, but it could so easily be for myself, I am SLEEPY these days! In bed by 8pm sleepy. Everyone tells me to enjoy it now, in less than nine weeks it'll be a little harder to nap with a newborn in the house!


I've coloured this cutie with Copics and paper pieced the chair and ottoman. My layout is pretty simple - the image was cut with Circle STAX and layered on a barely-there Open Scallop Doily Die-namics.   I added my ribbon on a slant for interest and to avoid covering up the image too much. The new By the Letters Uppercase Die-namics served as my sentiment for the front of the card.


I love that this set comes with a retirement sentiment - retiring is definitely cause for celebration! I've used the Open Scallop Border on the inside of the card.

This is so adorable! Reminds me of DH taking a nap in our chair. Not to worry, naps are plentiful in the beginning, so just enjoy and sleep when the baby sleeps.

This mouse is SO cute, I wouldn't mind if he lived in my apartment! I love the patterned paper you selected for his cozy chair, & how you carried it over to the inside of the card as well. I also like the big ZZZ's... I get the sense that he's taking a nice, long "cat-nap." ;)
