Twin Mice

I discovered a new (to me) stamp store about a year ago and had been following their blog for all that time.  Even though I loved all their stamps and images I never bought any.  Finally caved in because I just couldn't resist a stamp set they had for Christmas.  Oh my.......Great service, clear stamps that stamp perfect every time, and a very sweet and generous owner.

Jane's Doodles has so many wonderful stamps.  The set I used is called Winter Wishes and not only has the mouse, but also some other images that are equally as cute and fun.  I colored the 'twins' with Copics, added a couple of pieces of patterned paper, and then topped it off with a snowflake die from Impressions Obsession.  Very CAS and an easy mailer for the holidays.

I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop (snippets).

Thanks for stopping by........

They are adorable and I love that you gave them red and green scarves to make the background papers perfectly. The snowflake is the perfect final touch. I will be heading over to that store now. Thanks for the link. Have a wonderful day.

Thanks for the link, Lynn! That is an adorable set from a new-to-me dealer! I love this adorable holiday design with your mouse twins and fun papers! Almost every thing I do now is just paper and ink! I've become a CAS snob, I believe!

Oh this is just darling! LOVE those little meece and a perfectly designed background for the little fellas too! I need to go and check that store out - there's something a bit like the Hobby Art stamp set I offered last week about these wee meece so I'd best sit on my purse before going to take a peek!

Hugs

Well, these critters are just darling (and I will have to check out this site). Of course their adorableness is helped out a whole lot with your pretty paper combinations and the layout placement. GOOD JOB! (I have a Thanksgiving set - think is Lawn Fawn). But I like this cutie set. TFS & Hugs.

Di said...

Oops, I didn't sit on the purse firmly enough. Some fabby stamp sets there Lynn - thanks for 'enabling' :) In fact I only went for the set you used here, plus the same for the toy box. Love that you can mix and match the Santa hat!

Agree with you, some lovely designs and no doubt I'll go back again for a further look once I'm feeling up to spending more time in the craft room.

I do hope you don't mind me following your lead so much - you really do choose so many things that I just can't manage without! Maybe I should have you as my 'personal shopper' :)

Hugs

They are the cutest mice ever, and I love their polka dot scarves! Those tiny trees in the dsp are the perfect compliment to make for one absolutely PRECIOUS card! L.O.V.E.

Doggownit, Lynn, I thought you were going to be good and be inspiring for me to stop buying and what do you do but turn around and enable me!! I've seen Jane's and not succumbed before, but when I hear that a stamp stamps cleanly, I'm drawn in like a moth to a flame! Plus, cuteness gets me every time and these meese are just that ... fraternal twins then, eh, or just trying to be individual?! I can relate to that! Hugs, Darnell
