I am looking at this image and trying to focus on the "Smile" part.. lol. The photography on this one is way off but that's how it goes some days. The ribbon is the same color as the purple on those flowers, if you can believe it!! The ribbon looks almost eggplant in this pic. Enough griping.. ok.. that's a lie.. Keep reading ; )
This was made for a challenge at
Simon Says Challenge and House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. (I am sure I will find more). Both were sketch challenges so I did take a few liberties to make it work for both.
The mouse is popped up.. and do you want to know why? Oh my gosh!! I had already punched the corners with that wonderful EK Success corner punch, worked the ribbon through the corners, tied the bow, glued it to the yellow border background and the popped it up to the yellow swirl background. I was sitting there working on the flowers and happened to glance up and could NOT believe it. The House Mouse was totally crooked!! There was no way to salvage it because of all the that stuff up there ^^^. Even taking apart the layers couldn't fix it because when I punched the corners I did not realize the lip of the glass was not level. I just happened to have a 2nd mouse colored which was actually my first attempt but totally hated the flower. So, to make a really long story a little shorter, I just cut out the glass and mouse and rounded it around my bottle of prima flowers then double popped him up so the top of the glass is level. Then I tried to hide the section of the glass that showed from the first layer with the flowers. Now that I've told you.. can you tell??
Needless to say.. this little mouse gave me a run for my money. The name is Splish, Splash, a Citrus bath. And you know what?? I think it's time for a glass a wine, some candles and a nice long soak in a super hot bath!!
Thanks for looking. And really.. I'll be ok (wink)
