Hurry Up Spring!

Almost here. Daylight Saving Time Sunday morning, oh boy that lost hour of sleep! What am I saying? I'm retired so what do I care! I can sleep in!!! Sorry, all you working folk but I had to gloat. In honor of the upcoming sunny days and warm nights, I've combined a Magnolia stamp with a cute little  House Mouse. Unfortunately I don't see that this background image is available right now but the window die is available for pre-order from the Magnolia-licious store; it's a PoppyStamp Die and one of several that I've purchased lately. They're just too darn cute and sooooo much fun to play with.  The digital background paper is from Bearly Mine, the scalloped border is Die-Namics and the embossing is Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. I can't believe I haven't worn the dots off this folder I use it so much :)
There, did I leave any detail out? Oh yes, colored with Copics, ribbon and card stock from stash. So much for more information than you needed to know (lol). My message is just this:
HAPPY SPRING to all you NORTHERN HEMISPHERE bloggers

  21. Hey Sue - delightful card and I do love that window. The mouse is probably checking to see if the cat is coming home. Everything you have put together with this looks great - a real room!
