A Mice Day to Celebrate

Super cute little birthday mice by Birdie Brown for My Favorite Things. I couldn't decide which images to color for this birthday card, and when I decided, I couldn't pick which ones to use on the card, so ... I used all of the ones I colored.  :)

MFT Sketch 529

Almost missed this week's sketch challenge, but here I am by the skin of my teeth! I'm pretty impressed with me to have cranked out this card over the last hour when I should really be in bed asleep. LOL AND I really like it and didn't want to throw it in the trash (which has been known to happen when I rush). Anyhoo, I hope you like it too.

The coffee stamps are by Altenew from the Coffee Love stamp set. Sentiment by My Favorite Things from the Coffee Break sentiments. 

I'm not sure you can tell by the pics, but I used glossy accents on the coffee pot as well as the coffee in the mug. 
Foam tape because that's what I do. ;)
Copic colors are E47, E74, and YG93.

My Favorite Things, Color Challenge #159

Today's card is a slimline design. These tall cards have made a comeback recently and now there are dies out there to make it even easier to create this style card. They fit into a business sized envelope (#9 or #10) and give you lots of real estate to play with. 

I used the foliage from MFT, Winter Songbirds to add more of the color palette.
I couldn't wait to use this new stamp set from the Concord & 9th January release. So simple, but so effective. 

Coordinating copics to fit the color challenge.
This month's color palette.
