img_4511For my project today, I started with Wild Rose Studio’s Harvest Mice.  I had this funny thought, that went something like, it is a birthday, and a hop, why not have a hoppy birthday.  However, there weren’t any particular themed beer stamps that I wanted to use, and thought, beer comes from wheat…mice on wheat are cute…bam…done!!!  So I colored up the image with my copics and fussy cut it out.

Make sure you continue along the hop.  There are so many great prized being given away.  And of course, Happy Birthday Doodle’s Paper Playground and SparkleBlends Mixes!!!

  1. I like the way you think. Those mice on the wheat stocks are so darling and look fantastic with the shaker design.
