A Bit Of Humour

It's Bank Holiday Monday again, they come round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend. It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge,

This time it was the lovely Sue's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Humour" Use something on your creation that makes you smile or chuckle. As soon as I saw the theme I knew which stamp I had to use. It had to be "Feeder friends" HMTR1021, just look at the birdies watching that cheeky little mouse having a little snooze after a bellyful of seeds.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in. We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who will be giving one lucky winner a $25 Gift Certificate.
So hop on over to the challenge blog to see all the challenge details. Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration over at HM&F Monday Challenge

This is for the following challenges:-

1. Card Makin' Mama's - challenge 44 - Spring Photo Inspiration

2. Crafty Catz - challenge # 131 - May flowers

My 6 Year old son Bobby has been in at my Promarkers again, he loves my Promarkers. He has made this card for his Dads Birthday, believe or not he actually googled saber tooth and then found this image to print and colour. Then raided my card blanks and sentiment stamps, but I do think he's done a good job.

Stamps - House Mouse Feeder Friends HMTR1021, Stampman dragonfly,
Papers - From stash but don't know name, flowers made from pages of an old book,
Colouring Mediums - Promarkers for the image, Distress Inks for flowers and dragonfly,
Tools - Nesties, Crealie dies, leaf punch,
Embellishments - glossy accents, gems, pearls,

Thank you for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting
Tracy &

Hi Tracy, I love this big beautiful stamp, and your coloring of it is gorgeous. He does look funny, and the birds think so too! But, with a full belly, he's not minding a bit what anyone thinks!!
Your son's card for his Dad is wonderful! See the apple didn't fall far from the tree, must get his cardmaking skills from his Mum! Dad's going to love this one.

Hi Tracy,
LOVE your beautiful card :) We have bird feeders exactly like this one..though I've never found a mouse asleep in any of them, but the squirrels do hang from them picking out the seed!
Bobby has made a fantastic job of his Dads card...better watch out Tracy, your promarkers might run out quicker than usual!

Hugs Elaine xx

Tracy said...

That stamp is so cute, love the cheeky little mouse :)
I like your hand made flowers.
Bobby did a great job on his card for his dad.
