Good Afternoon!
Hubby been watching Football today, so I've had time to play. Course I've made a New Years Resolution! Going to try and use some of the large amount of dies I seem to have? I keep them in a CD wallet which is open on the top of my card drawer, I've  got fed up of them spilling out onto the floor, so I bought a couple of plastic boxes to store them....Surprising how many I don't use, not because I don't like them! Just because I'd forgotten they were there..

This little sweetie lives at Bugaboo Stamps and is called Mouse - Big Balloon
Such a handy little image when you can put anything inside the balloon... 'Happy Birthday' today.
Coloured with Copics the 'grass' is pencil. Papers from stash. Memory Box/Magnolia/Crealies dies used..
The flowers are a Kreaxions die coloured with Distress Ink 'Spun Sugar'.

What a sweet one! Hm, haven't thought of adding a sentiment within the ballon lines... that works. Totally understand about dies. Some seems to be used all the time, others more rarely. Having easy access to them on the desk is a great idea.

Hi Chrissy
I'm finally feeling a little better and I'm playing catch up with all the blogs and challenges I missed while I took time off. Hope you had a nice holiday and got some fun new craft stuff to play with. Your card is so cute. Love that little mousie.

He is a little cutie Chrissy and love the idea of space on the balloon for a sentiment..fabulous card design and love the dies and colours..I've just put my dies into small plastic sleeves and they are stored in tiny ring binders..and labelled..but don't trust the labels too much.
