Candy Cane Snack

I warned you Im totally addicted to digi stamps right now. This uber cute image is from The Greeting Farm. I love Marina's animals! I colored this candy cane snack image using copics and cut it out with nesties then sponged the image using antique linen ink to make the white on their clothes stand out more and to match the dp. I used Jolly by Golly dp by Cosmo Cricket it was just perfect for these candy cane snacking mice!LOL! Okay normally Im NOT a mice person but these are adorable! I kept the embellies off this card and just added some piercing in the corners since this will be a mailed card.

Why arent there enough hours in a day to do the things we WANT to do and not just the things we HAVE to do!LOL!! I have several images on my desk just waiting to be colored and Im just dyin to color them but Im in the middle of a book I just cant put down plus theres that job/wife/mom thing too!LOL!! Im so looking forward to Thanksgiving break! Come on Tuesday!!LOL! Plus I did a really stupid thing and agreed to meet one of my besties for the midnight showing of New Moon tommorrow night. What was I thinking!?!LOL! I know we'll have a ball but seriously...you need sleep to survive a Friday at the Prek!LOL!! Have a great night!

Shannon, this is just darling! That paper is so perfect and you did a fab job of coloring those cute mice! I really like the linen you used for shading. I just bought a bunch of distress inks and that is one of them. I'm going to have to give that a try.
Thanks so much for the inspiration:))
