Dream Puff AND some news!

This is the other card I made Thursday night! I used SCS sketch 172 and the same papers as the Curious George card - Close to Cocoa base; Close to Cocoa DP. The stamp is "Dream Puff" by House Mouse - one of my faves & one that took a lot of hunting to find!! I stamped her (Monica) on watercolour paper and used my Gamsol (OMS) and prismas to colour her. I cut the circles with my Marvy punches (Giga & Mega) and sponged them with Chocolate chip. The dew drops seem to be my new favourite embellie.....they are so cute!!!

We are heading out to a Reptile show today in search of some new "critters" for our zoo! Our zoo was depleted and we've been without critters for over a year. At one point we had: 2 anoles, 1 house gecko, 3 leopard geckos, 4 Giant African Land Snails, 1 veiled Chameleon, plus the 2 cats, a dog and numerous fish. Since then, all have gone to herp heaven! I miss Chip the most - he was our veiled chameleon. This is Chip - he looks gross cuz he was molting at the time I took this! He loved his crickets!!! Check out his feet....he was to coolest thing to watch!! When he died he was about 6 inches long, he still had a lot of growing to do, but Chameleon's get stressed very easily and we think the cold weather we had and the location of his cage were what did him in. I feel terrible about it still to this day! Poor Chippy!!! We named him after Chip Foose - the car detailer guy on TV (The show he did was called Overhaulin') Last week, Tim bought me 2 Giant African Land Snails!! I'm so excited!! But, this weekend is the Reptile show, so we are going to go and see if we can find a couple Leopard Geckos to add to our zoo!!! I will get pictures of our new snails and whatever we buy today!!!

Love your House Mouse card! The browns all go together so well and the layout is wonderful.

I had to show the other picture to my son. He loves critters of all kinds. He has a snake as a pet. We catch lots of lizzards and horned toads but they all get let go again.

Before we had kids my dh had iguana's. A couple little ones and one BIG one (about 2 1/2 feet long).
