HM Birthday Card


I made this card to my HM online friend, Sue Kment. We "met" in House Mouse yahoo group about 8 years ago. I have only a couple of HM birthday stamps, and i know she's seen & made lots of HM cards in the past, so i had to be REALLY creative/different to surprise her, and i came up with this idea. :-) This is just one small "party mouse" stamp, and i stamped repeatedly, and it looks more festive! :-) I used Souffle white pen to make "marks" on all balloons. I attached silver cords to balloons under the sentiment. For others, i handdrew the strings for balloons with the silver gel pen. I used liquid applique for the icing on the cake. I drew the ribbon on the present with the gold gel pen. For the candle, and mice's hats, i used glitters, in different colors. What i didn't notice when i took this photo was that the tiny pink paper scrap is attached on the mouse's hand on the right hand of the card... i think it got there with the static or something. It shouldn't be there. Hope it's not there when Sue receives the card....
