Mouse in my house!

How many cards could you make with these two stamp sets? These two set are remarkable because they offer so much versatility, mix and match something from each set and the possibilities are endless! You can see all the various items that can be placed into the arms of these delightful mice.

Our Lilac Inkers group met last week and they were challenged to design a card using the Thanksgiving Millie and Thanksgiving Mervin clear stamp sets. All in all a total of 25 cards were made!  I only photographed 13 of the 25 because some were duplicate layouts.  Here are the Lilac Inkers hard at work in the Butterfly Garden.

They were each given two kraft CS cards, which were pre-stamped (white or versa mark) with the leaves and acorns from the set.  Baskets of die cut shapes and paper scraps (patterned, embossed, colored) were available for them to "design" their own cards.

I'll share a few photos with you but you need to visit the Inky Antics blog to see the others.

Look at all the faux stitching.   Ready for more?  Take a look:

WOW what creative ladies are in this group! Pumpkins, and pies and turkeys.......OH MY!   Check out the rest of their cards at the Inky Antics blog. While your visiting the Inky blog check out their stamps. Their stamps are always FUN and WHIMSICAL. I simply love the "Worldly Women", I can really relate to these ladies!

Thanks, Jackie for sharing our marvelous creations.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Had a great time making the cards. Designing cards is always fun but Marie made it much easier having precut shapes and several boxes of co-ordinating accessories to chose from.
Thanks Marie - I always look forward to class.

These were great stamps to work with and coloring with pencils and gamosol always makes them stand out. Alice

Look forward to our monthly meeeting at Marie's house. Good ideas, fun & best of all --company.
Loved making these cards. It was fun to use all the pieces that Marie provided for us to come up with a card that we wouldn't have normally done (since everyone has their own style)But these way we had to go out of the "box".Luba

Marie--It was such fun making these cards. I think we surprised ourselves at how quickly we were able to make so many different and "cute" cards with these images. They are so adorable that you couldn't go wrong. Thank you, also, for always challenging us to expand our creativity! Cathy M.
