A Cute Latte Mouse

Hello, good morning, and happy day! I'm back for a day at home, and I'm trying to play "catch up". I have this adorable little card to share today that I made for Tanja's Coffee/Tea Card Swap on splitcoaststampers. I bought this cute little mouse stamp from Whippersnapper especially for Tanja's swap. He was just too cute to pass up!!! :-D
After I got this card all finished, I sat there thinking about my latte sentiment. I pondered it for quite a while, and decided that the card was missing something. Of course!! The whipped cream for the top of the latte!! I added it as an afterthought, and I'm happy I did. I think his whipped cream hat is pretty darned cute, and I hope you and my fellow swappers will like it too. What a wonderful experience this swap has been, and Tanja has been a devoted and gracious hostess. THANK YOU TANJA!!!
GRANNY UPDATE: I want to thank all of you for your kind thoughts and special prayers for my Granny. She is doing a little better, but it will be a while before she is ready to come home from the hospital. The radiologist and her family doctor disagree about her broken arm. Her family doctor agrees that he sees the same thing on the x-ray as the radiologist, but he's sure it's an old injury, and the "inside" view of the bone shows that everything is in alignment and looks good. The splint/cast was removed yesterday, and she is able to move and use the arm much more, and she walked a few steps for the first time in days.
Supplies for this card: Paper: Pink Pirouette, Watercolor Paper, Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Bella Rose DSP
Ink: Black Stazon, Various SU inks for watercoloring. Stamps: Whippersnapper, SU Like It A Latte
Accessories: Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, Word Window Punch, Eyelet Border Punch, Felt Flowers, Gingham Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you have a blessed day filled everything you love! May the good Lord bless and keep you today and always!
Love Ya!
