My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Birthday Buddies - SSS16

Here is a great sketch from the Sweet Stop Sketches Challenge with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.
This stamp set is called Birthday Buddies. Don't you just love this cute little mouse!
Here is my take on this sketch.
The DP is Close to my Heart "Animal Cookies Creative Basics".
Sunflower Grosgrain ribbon and the flat white pearls is from CTMH.

The Mouse for Birthday Buddies was stamped, colored with Copic Markers and cut out three times and layered for a 3D affect.

The stitching was done by hand with matching embroidery floss.

The border punch if from Martha Stewart. I used that one because it reminded me of Swiss cheese and thought it was perfect with the mouse!

This is so FUN, Nancy! I really like how you colored the mouse and made the balloons travel beyond the frame. Wonderful colors and papers, too!

Oh Nancy, this is just adorable!!! I'm totally in love with this stamp set, and I love the way you colored up the mouse and balloons and paired her with that awesome paper.
