Welcome to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
#89, chosen by our talented teammate, Lisa, the theme is:
Use your favorite house mouse, gruffie or happy hopper stamp.
Sounds easy peasy hunh? Well choosing might be hard since they are all so cute!
I chose this adorable Gruffie. I colored with Copics and cut him out. The teapot is a shaped card design by theCutting Cafe, I cut it out, ran it through an embossing folder and popped my Gruffie stamped image onto the front. I also popped up the lid and the base of the tea pot. The border doily I bought on line. The border on the lid of the teapot is Martha Stewart. The inside sentiment says, Pretend we're having tea for two and that I'm sitting there with you.
And, what good is a pot of tea with out a fine teacup to drink it from. This template design is from Waltzing Mouse Designs . I put a couple special tea bags in the cup and wrapped in clear wrap. The card and the tea cup are a great little gift. It was a little tricky to put together (this is my second attempt) , but the results are so nice.
And here is a picture of the pair, ready to go.
