Hello everyone, and happy Saturday to all! Isn't this time of year wonderful? Cooler night temperatures, as well as early morning, and then the day warms up to low to mid 70's, the sun warming your face - ah... a perfect day.

This past Monday, Sept 21 my daughter turned 29 - OMG yes 29, she is my baby.  I can't believe where the years have gone.  She loves sweet images, so I just received my Purple Onion order a few weeks back and I knew I wanted to colour up this image for her card.

Is this not the sweetest image ever? I just love this cute mouse.  The image is called Wishing - a Stacey Yakula image from Purple Onion.

I stamped the image onto cougar 100 lb white cardstock using black memento ink, then coloured using primsacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.

I cut the image out using spellbinders square die, then layered this onto a piece of blue bazzill c/s, then stitched around the edges.

Designer paper is from Kathy Davis - journeys. I wanted to stamp a little sentiment of some sort, but nothing big to take away from the image. I found the perfect sentiment in my PTI- mixed messages set, that fit perfectly on this little die cut tag.

Finished off with some seam binding ribbon, glitter and a couple of dots on her cheek using my white pen.

stamp - Purple Onion - Wishes by Stacey Yakula, PTI - mixes messages
ink - black memento, black versafine, prismacolour pencils & gamsol
paper - cougar white 100 lb, blue bazzill - starmist, Kathy Davis - journeys
dies - spellbinders square , back to basic tags
misc - glitter, seam binding ribbon, gold floss, marvy white pen

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope I have encouraged you to do some stamping. Have a wonderful day.

Oh, I always feel like stamping after I stop here, Pauline! I've been looking at Purple Onion lately, but I have so MUCH of everything and many I haven't used yet. Digis, too. This image is adorable and your coloring is so soft and pretty. I just LOVE it! It's always so fun to see what image you might use next. I think you should stamp every day so I'll have something to look forward to. Just sayin'. I know your daughter just loved her card. 29 sounds very young to me!
