Double D Challenge - Begins with an M

Hello Friends and welcome.  Are you ready for this challenge?  I am going to tell you right off the start that this was really a challenge for me.

Here is the inspiration board for you. Darlene is out Host!

 Nothing came to mind.  Truly, in thinking about the stamps that I had, I got nothing.  

So I googled words with M and I got an idea!  Mice, yes I would do mice.  

I started out using a stamp set from My Favorite things and thought I would make a group of mice playing in a band.  Here is what I mean. 


I was busy masking off mice and making my creation when I suddenly noticed that these mice had cottontails and long ears.  Could this be a new breed of mice???? I didn't think that I could pull that off, so I started over.  Luckily I found a stamp in my stash that I had never used and it worked well. 

This is better. 


supplies are: 
Stampendous Mice Wishes stamp and a die from Die Namics Cross Stitched Squares
You should stop over to see what the rest of the team has done for inspiration.  

Here is the prise for a random winner.  
Amy Design - Dies - Musical Stave

We love to see all of your creations and I love your comments too.

  8. What a cute mouse image you have used Barbara. Great coloring and great design. TFS
    P.S. I think the bunnies look kind of like mice also. You can have drew them some long tails. :)

  9. I chuckled out loud on your post today! They do look like mice as they are faces are long and skinny in my opinion. I am kinda happy this worked out this way cause I adore the card that you ended up making. Well done!

  11. OMG, you made me laugh out loud, Barb! I didn't even notice the ears and cottontails until you mentioned it. Sheesh! Well, you have a cute image all ready to color, but in the meantime your House Mouse card is totally adorable!

  12. So beautiful and sweet in every way Barbara. Lovely image, colour and design detail. To be honest, I also thought the bunnies were mice when I looked at the image the first time - lol.

  13. I have that Strike Up the Band set, have had it for years. Too bad they aren't mice, but I'm really wondering if anyone would have noticed. They look like mice.....well except for the long ears and fluffy tail.....lol. I love your House Mouse card, though, and you have colored him perfectly. Isn't he just the cutest thing? I'm such a fan of House Mouse Stamps! Fabulous card!!!
