Just sitt'n here miss'n you!

I had an amazing weekend stampin and laughin and shoppin with my friends Pine and Lisa. Then to top it off, when I got home a box from Whipper Snapper was sitting on my counter (no, the mailman doesn't bring my mail into my kitchen, my DH does. lol).

I have soooo many things that need to get done, but I just had to play tonight. This little mouse caught my eye as I was flippin through the on-line catalog last week and I new he was going to be mine. He's perfect for those cards where I want to tuck a hug inside for someone who's needing one.

I stamped the image on the pink polka dot paper and cut out the chair. I then stamped the image again on white cardstock, colored the mouse, cut him out and attached him to the chair with Tombow glue. The rest of the image is colored with Copic markers and the *wall paint* is done using the Copic Airbrush System and my newest toy. Yes, I am the very proud owner of a Sparmax air compressor! When I was at CHA in February Marianne from Copic was using this one, so I talked to my friends, Joy & Daisy (eP) and they were able to order one for me! It is sooooo nice to just flip the switch and spray to my hearts content. No more worries about having the cans go empty! And it's SO CUTE!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Do you mask when you airbrush? I'm still using the cans, and I always mask. I'm wondering if there's an easier way that I haven't figured out yet.
