Lost and Found Mice

For those of you wondering how my coloring in odd light turned out, this post give you the answer! 
This week the House Mouse and Friends folks have a challenge called "lost and found."  They want you to use your HM and Friends stamps to depict something you've found, something you've lost, or something that could be lost.  Um..... what?

I mean, I could lose anything and everything at any given time and probably have.  Then I realized that the House Mouses most likely aren't nearly as scattered brained as me and don't lose things as easily.
Here are my House Mice and they can't find the darn lighter to light the candles, probably they lent it to me.  Anyway, they have come up with an ingenious solution. I'm impressed that the one mouse can not only breathe fire, but can breathe glittery fire.  That, my friends, is talent!
 
The Fine Print: My stamp is an older one from back in the Stampa Rosa days and called "Jalepino Peppers," colored with Copics in wonky light, designer paper by Fancy Pants, corner punch by EK Success, flower and brad from my stash and orange and yellow glitter by Stickles.

Great interpretation of the challenge! Sometimes I feel like I could breathe fire after eating something spicy like those peppers. The coloring looks great from here.

You should really think about returning their lighter to them. LOL. I love this card. The image is darling and I love your corner treatment with the flower. Your cut corners are equally as nice giving the card a different look. Thanks so much for playing along with us here at House Mouse & Friends this week. Enjoy your weekend.

That truly is one talented little mouse! Blowing glittered fire is quite a stunt! Great coloring and I love the corner accent!

That mouse and yours truly must have had the same thing for lunch. Must have been bonnet peppers. House mouse is one of my fav's. Beautiful coloring Judy. Did he manage to light the candle?

Krisha said...

I think I have eaten peppers from that same jar at times!

Better out the top than out the bottom!!! LOL

Hmm... well, I spent half of today sealing food in boxes away from a House Mouse, so personally I think they deserve all the chilli breath they get!
