Falling for House Mouse and Friends

I had the day off today- it was a great day- did some things around the house, did a little shopping, and even had time to play in my craft area for a bit. This morning while I was having my coffee, I checked out the House Mouse and Friends blog challenge. This time around, the challenge is all about fall. I love fall- it's my favourite time of year.

As the weather gets cooler, I start to crave warm drinks- flavoured teas, hot chocolate with yummy add-ins. This mousey stamp makes me smile- he just looks so happy in that warm bath!

I stamped the image with momento black ink and coloured with copics. I found the patterned paper in my stash and overlaid it on kraft card stock. I used my Martha Stewart punch to punch out the falling leaves and adhered them with a strip of tape. The glitter paper is a new find that I treated myself to today (shhhhh.... don't tell!).

Now, off to finish a couple of things before heading back to work tomorrow.
