Sparkle Mouse

I was able to sit down last night while the in laws and Paul were watching the race. I'm not much of a race fan, so I snuck up to the bonus room to stamp. I had picked up this cute mouse image at a local Stamp store when I was looking for Memento black ink pad. They didn't have it, so my friend Amanda in TX, was nice enough to go to her Hobby Lobby and pick one up and mail it to me! Such a sweet thing to do, thanks, Amanda! The ink pad arrived yesterday, and I was dying to see how it would work with the copics. Wonderfully! Now I know why everyone who loves Copics uses that pad!

Anyhow, it's Sparkle's Christmas card challenge. I didn't have time to check to see if she had another challenge up, since I have company. So, my card is the normal A2 size card. This sucker is covered in glitter. I was playing with the Art Institute glue again. That's some cool stuff. I think that metal little tip gets into the small spaces. I used SU's diamond dust, Martha Stewart glitter, and the red is from a 6 kit jar. It wasn't fine enough. Martha has a cool pack of glitter at Walmart and Michaels. I'm thinking I'll be picking that up in a month or two! Cuz who doesn't love some bling?!
Oh, good news! It didn't rain on us yesterday! So, Trey played yesterday. His team is looking like a real team. One little boy had his first out, like he got the kid out, he was so proud! It was so cute to watch! Neat seeing them come together! Today is rainy, so we're trying to come up with something to do, because there are no kids movies out right now!
Supplies: nesties, WOJ sentiment, PTI Pure Poppy cardstock, DCWV Christmas stack, glitter, Copic glitter pen-green, buttons.
Editted to add: You all know I love the images that Elisabeth Bell designs for WOJ, and Sugar Nellies. She's got some blog candy you might want to check out too! Click on here to go see it, and enter to win! She makes the most darling images!
