Self Portrait


This my friends, is what I look like after Christmas dinner:

Xmouse OK, I'm NOwhere nearly as cute, but the general feeling is the same!! 

I am officially in love with High Hopes Stamps!!  I am totally head over heels!  I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it.. Is this not the cutest thing EVAH???

oy, let me get back to business.. This cute little mouse was colored using Copics, and the "fur" on his suit is liquid applique.. (incidentally, anyone know where I can get some.. I'm starting to run out, and I'm seriously hyperventilating at the thought of losing my ability to "oomph" my projects.)

Anyhoo, moving on.. I used my massive scallop and them cut the red with the colluzle, of course I don't have a scallop punch the size I needed so I attempted to make my own using the SU! corner rounder punch to make the scallops like I saw on SCS.  Well easier said then done, but somehow, it came out not too shabby I think!  (I did place everything on the card off center, just so you know, it was on PURpose :)

The patterned paper is from DCWV Christmas Glitter Stack, the Green card base and layer is Bazzill Bling and the Red CS is from SU!.  The little ornament is from a Jolees sticker, and aren't you impressed by my stitching??  I am being totally sarcastic as you can see - I can't stay straight for the life of me, and I'm sure NOT going to be putting together Versace outfits any time soon!! 

So I just wanted to share my little "Christmouse" with you!  Isn't he a cutie?? To celebrate my new High Hopes card I think I'll go have a cookie now...

Thanks for looking!!
