Here's the second card that I made from the CDS "Circle Somethings" stamp set. This set is so whimsical and again, it has so many possibilities...I just had to ink up the half circles to make this little mouse. I wanted to use the "Celebrate" sentiment from the "Circle Somethings" set and so the whole card concept evolved from "Celebrate. I found this delicious designer paper pad from Martha Stewart at Walmart, and loved the pink, greens and lavendars (can you tell I'm so ready for Spring?), so the layout concept came after I decided to stamp 3 vertical mice, making the third one the "Birthday Mouse". I just cut out a piece of lavendar coordinating polka dotted designer paper from the Martha Stewart pad and outlined the edge with a black marker, drawing a little pompom on top and then glued it to the bottom mouse's head. A fun set that will set your mojo free, "Circle Somethings" is available at Clear Dollar Stamps on February 1st. I have an individual stamp that I've paired with a soon-to-be-released stamp set below, so check that out, too. Okay, here's the deets:
