Leftovers

I am an admitted paperholic, so when I used a small portion of some patterned paper last week, I put the leftover pieces in a pile on top of my desk. When I got a chance to create this weekend, I used up all the leftover paper on these six cards. Above is a stamped image of Edwin from Magnolia. I colored him with copics and glitzed his shoes and wings with Liquid Glass. I put him on a log and tried to make the embellishments simple and boyish.
On these cards I used stamped images I received in a swap or RAK, and would love to know where they came from--aren't they cute?! I think I have almost enough birthday cards for my Gram's Christmas package--I make birthday cards for every member of the family for her and put them in chronological order with their names written BIG on the envies. (What else can you give a 99 year old for Christmas?)

I love this mouse. The sentiment inside the card goes with it and says "Flat out wishing you a Happy Birthday". I got this mystery image from another crafter and don't know who makes the stamp, but it's a favorite of mine now!
Bella is over for the weekend, which means I'll have plenty of photos to scrap in the next couple of weeks! Have a great week!
