Richard Scarry mouse

I so wish y'all could smell my house. Ross' work had their Thanksgiving celebration today and guess what he signed up for. Yep, got up at 6 this morning to get 2 turkeys going. He found this new Roasting Rub by McCormick that made my house smell fabulous. He picked out the French Herb one that includes: onion, rosemary, marjoram, thyme, sage, tarragon, lavender and garlic. Oh my YUM! We still have a ton left so I can't wait to try it on other meats. Oh while I was searching on the McCormick site, I found this helpful link that explains how long your seasonings last! After bleaching the kitchen (turkey juice freaks me out), I sat down to make a card. I got my Dec./Jan. issue of Paper Crafts last night. Tons of cute samples and on page 30 they had a sketch that caught my eye, imagine that. My friend Cindy sent me this adorable image. Doesn't it remind you of a Richard Scarry character? Man I use to love those books, there was so much to look at. The main image is raised with a dimensional. His hat has some liquid applique on it and the white speck on the bulb car is covered in Stickles. I love it Cindy, thank you so much!!! Happy Stamping everyone.

Stamps: Max Wheels (Stampendous), Wishing You (sentiment, TAC)
Paper: Ruby Red, Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, Basic Grey (Blitzen)
Other: modgepodge hardware, ribbon from Jo-Ann, dimensional, liquid applique, Stardust Stickles, Marvy extra jumbo scallop circle punch, square punch, magic matter, mat pack/piercer, white gel pen.
Technique: faux stitching

This is adorable! Great coloring! Love that DP! The faux stitching looks great as well...it almost gives it the look of a ribbon!
