Tooooooo busy!

I have been so consumed with this wedding, that I'm feeling out of touch with the rest of the world. Does you life just spin in circles sometimes? Kinda like Lori Craig's fabulous card here! When I popped into her blog this morning my first thought (after my eyes adjusted LOL!) was "hey, that's my life right now!"

I love this little mouse by Whipper Snapper Designs. He can be all sad and missin someone, or he could be feeling a bit under the weather. He's like a sad face on a small child, breaks your heart but makes you smile at the cuteness of it at the same time! Today, he's saying to all my neglected friends... I MISS YOU!

After I colored the image with Copic markers, I used an Inkssentials opaque white pen to place little white "buttons" in the tufts of the chair.

The background is Antique Linen Distress Ink smooged around the image with this - Tim Holtz's ink blending tool. A mandatory item on my work table at all times!

Well... I better get to work. Hope you have sunshine in your day today!



Stamps: Whipper Snapper Designs, Papertrey Ink Ink: Copic markers, Distress Inks (Aged Mahogany, Antique Linen), Palette Noir Paper: Daisy D, Papertrey Ink, CTMH Misc: Ribbon (SU!), Nestabilities, Martha Stewart scallop border punch, sewing

I absolutely love the Whipper Snapper images but have yet to buy one of the stamps. This is just the *home-y* look and feel of the doily scallop and the dp!
