Mint Magic

I took a tumble yesterday (no, I hadn't had a single alcoholic drink! )
so I can imagine taking a nice, warm bath in Mint Tea..
just like these little guys.
I love the expressions on their faces.

It's the first time I've used this stamp,
and I was a bit worried about colouring it,
but it turned out ok.
I wanted to make the little tag 3D, so I decoupaged it and added a bit of string,
with a staple on the tag and just pushed through the card at the top end.

I'd like to enter this for a couple of challenges
1. The great sketch over at Papertake - I do like these sketches where I can use my bigger stamps, and some of these House Mouse ones are BIG.
2. House Mouse & Friends - where the theme is **Sweet**

  • Stamp - House Mouse, We're 'Mint Tea' Be Together.
    Coloured with Copics
  • Design Paper - DCWV, Nana's Nursery Baby Girl
  • Ribbon from my stash
