Simon Says....Photo Inspiration

Photobucket


This week at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog our challenge for you is to use this photo to inspire your creation! I don't know about you, but that cocktail looks mighty YUMMMMMMYYY!!!!!! I took my inspiration from the colour, the umbrella and the "drink" theme and found the PERFECT stamp to use!!!!


I used a House Mouse stamp that I have had for a long time, which I bought at Simon Says Stamp! I think I bought ALL of my House Mouse stamps there...they have SUCH a great selection!! I coloured this with Copics and added Crystal Lacquer to the glasses - it looks more real in person!!!! I coloured the grass behind the mice with chalks. The DP was from my stash, very cute seashell paper - but unfortunately, this was the last piece...sniff sniff!!!! LOL Does anyone else find a little piece of their heart hurts when you use the LAST piece of a really great pack or piece of paper?? LOL



I hope you will join us this week! If you do, you can win THIS:



AND, if you come back on Friday, you can enter to win MORE goodies with my Fabulous Friday Freebie!!! Can't wait to see your creations!!!!

Love your card Chris. You can't help but smile at those precious mice! Don't think I'd be smiling if I came upon mice in my drink in real life though!
