Eat Your Cake & Nap Too

A few weeks ago I was at Hobby Lobby picking up supplies for an Inky project when I came across this cute little House Mouse stamp, Eat Your Cake & Nap Too. I knew that this little chubby guy would be perfect for my niece's birthday card. I'm sure it will get used plenty in the future and it was 40% off ... couldn't pass it up.

I normally don't use these kind of floral embellishments on cards, I'm always worried about how they would look once they arrived at its destination when mailing. Since this card would be hand delivered I thought I would give them a try and because I have plenty mulberry flowers to use up. Before placing any flowers I had to visit Vicki's blog, Stamped Smiles, Vicki always has wonderful floral arrangements on her cards. After looking at my card I think I should have used more flowers... lol

  4. I LOVE the way you decorated up your boxes. Sadly, I neglected my presents. But not next year--I'm promising myself to work on Christmas throughout the whole year.

  5. Gorgeous as always Jovita! I haven't used an HM stamp in forever but still love them. I miss the old yahoo group when I was lucky to receive a couple of your cards in a swap. Have a great new year!
