If you give a mouse a cupcake...

He’s gonna want to top it with a hunk of cheese. (smile)


I think this image is genius (Way to Go, Tim!)  and another Hambo Digital Images. I love cupcakes images! (Remember my rant about Hero’s cupcakes?) Although I’m not a mouse person, per se, this one is cute. I printed him really big the other day in order to replace the missing cheese but then I found the one I was looking for so this was extra.  I did a little more experimenting with the Copics. I didn’t have blues in consecutive order to shade so I used what I had.  The shades were very far apart so just used very little in the areas I wanted really shaded. Then I went back to the lighter shade to blend and pull the darker color out. I did a little creative cutting to keep things interesting.  I didn't add a layer this time, I just cut around the cupcake and hat.

While searching for the perfect saying to go with this image, I remembered that I had this Hambo Stamp that says, "You're the cherry on top!"  A quick printing transformed it to thee perfect saying for this card.


I'm declaring myself an honorary member of the Hambo Stamps design team and I wanna be in the blog hop.  Let's see if I can get them to add me. Put in a good word for me, OK?


Edited to Add(ETA): ...wouldn't you know it, I found out that they indeed tried to contact me to participate and I didn't get the message.  I am honored!!!  ...and feeling stupid.
and I meant to say that this card is 5 x 7(what I called 'greeting card' size) so I printed the image really really big..

Yay Jacki - I LOVE it!! Great (and clever!) saying too! Consider yourself added to the blog hop -- at least from my blog.

Thanks for participating! :)

But I emailed you last week about being in the hop!!! Somehow, I thought you might want to be a part of this. So sorry if you did not receive my message.
Your card is fabulous, as always!!

mystery solved. I found the email in my spam folder. I get that email account on my phone and rarely sign into the computer. Evidently I don't see spam on my phone... We worked it all out! Thanks for putting up with my antics anyway, and I'm honored that you would ask me.
