Mice like to knit also!


I must be on a House Mouse kick! I like cards that have something tactile on them....something you can feel. If you could put your fingers on this yarn, you would know just how soft and comfy it is. I simply knitted a border to use on the card like you would use a piece of ribbon or other trim. For the verse, I used an Inkadinkado stamp and left out the flower that is on it, substituting a button there instead. I colored the image with Copics and layered with K & Company paper.
I can think of many other verses I could do on the computer...Thanks for being such a close knit friend....You keep me in stitches!.....When life comes unraveled, I am glad you are there for me....I would love to hear your suggestions also!
I can see using this stamps during the holidays or winter...."Your love keeps me warm"....
A good friend of mine was looking for a knitting image but when I offered this one she said, Ah, anything but House Mouse, but I think these guys are kind of cute. I guess she wasn't looking for cute.
Hope you have a great day and all your stitches stay on your needle!

EEK! You've been invaded by vermin! Thank goodness your coloring is still awesome. The little furwads are growing on me a bit, but I still can't embrace them and doubt one will ever live in my studio, no matter how darling the cards are that you make with them. Love the new Serendipity images. They are one of my very favorite stamp companies. Glad you're back to creating and sharing, Holly.

House Mouse usually creep me out, BUT, yours are so cute!! It's bright and cheerful. ( Don't tell anybody I said that.) I usually see them colored gray. I might have to take you up on getting a couple of those images.

I LOVE this card. And I can't begin to think of any other cute sayings to go with it other than the ones you have mentioned. What is the name of the image and also is it a new image by House Mouse?
