I seem to be on a house mouse roll at the moment...unintentional but I just can't resist the little things. They so remind me of my beloved pet rats when they were iddlie biddlie babies, so very cute. Early Autumn here we get a lot of what we call Crane Fly/Flying Daddylong legs. I've had a horror of them since my brothers chased me down the road with hands full of them and then threw the monsters into the lift with me as the doors were closing - you can only imagine the state I was in after travelling 8 floors up!!! They however were doubled up laughing !! Don't you sometimes just wish you could swat your brothers like you can annoying little insects lol. (I've almost forgiven them lol)
This is the second of my Autumn themed swap cards for this month. As you can see I cut my mousies out, I embossed them on the underside to make them nice and rounded. My papers are digital freebies called Autumn floor. I coloured my silver stickers with light green alcohol based pens, and filled them with glitter pens (sorry not showing up). Alphabet stickers were gold, coloured brown. I used glitter pens and clear glaze pen for the dragon fly in the image. I've used the last of my leaves made with stickers over lacy doilies. I used my brand new toy, my big shot (I'm a happy bunny) to emboss and die cut.
