Happy New Year to all!

I did my first CASE Splitcoast Challenge yesterday and I knew exactly which stamp was crying out to be inked for today! It came 2 days ago, how is that for perfect timing? This is my favorite card of all the cards I have made thus far.
That New Years champagne cork is flying. And what is that attached to the cork, but our very own favorite ...the House Mouse! I loved making this card! It was a CASE Challenge for Sunday of Danielle's (dlounds) AKA Fat Cat Stamper's cards - and what great cards they were! I had a great selection to choose from her many great cards. I subscribe to her blog as well!
The card I CASEd is located here:;ppuser=54696

This is the House Mouse Stamp called Popping Mouse. He was stamped in black stazon on watercolor paper. The bottle was colored with green marker (bic) and silver paint pen (tried coloring in between the stamped black dots and lines so I could use my silver on the foil on the bottle!). The mouse was done in watercolor pencils then brushed. The 2008 is handwritten in silver and outlined with a Sakura glaze pen in black. The DP with the silver bling is from DCWV-All Dressed Up matstack. The champagne "bubbles" dimensionals are by Marcella K and the splashes are icicle stickles.

Happy New Year Everyone!! May 2008 bring you loads of blessings and days of bliss, peace & happiness!

Great job on the cards and your blog. If you're like me, you love the feedback and comments that folks leave while stopping by to browse. I too am new to blogging since Sept. and vow to improve my skills in 2008. In fact, I'm off to my studio right now. I'll check back soon.
