That’s the name of this sweet little stamp from House Mouse.  Those of you who know me will understand right away why I had to have it, because I’m a knitter too!  There’s a link over there on the right, under the Categories drop down, that has all my knitting related posts and projects in it.

Anyway, the lovely Sue Kment, DT member at House Mouse & Friends, chose the wonderful theme of “Favourite Things” this fortnight.  There is even the lyrics to the song from The Sound of Music “These Are A Few of My Favourite Things” for you to sing along too!  Anyway, my card..

It’s a very simple card.  The image was coloured with Prisma pencils, cut out and mounted on to red card.  The red card does form a border all the way round the image, it’s just the angle of the photo making it look like the pom pom and the mouses tail don’t have the red card around them.  The papers all came from the scrap box and are seriously, seriously old, like, the very first packet of paper I ever bought old!  The blue card was embossed with a Provocraft folder and then I ran a Versamark ink pad over the raised section and embossed it with TH Holographic EP.  The sentiment is Inkadinkado, stamped and edged in Versamagic Red Magic ink.  I punched a few snowflakes from scrap paper, added a few little pearls and called it done.
