Raspberry March

The Raspberry March, doesn't that sound as if it should be a piece of music, something light and summery and full of whimsy.  However, it isn't a piece of music, it's another House Mouse card.  This one is another image from my friend.  This is another image I am coveting.  I know, I already have over two hundred of the little mice but they keep squeaking at me soooo temptingly.  I want to bring them all home.  I do get the mouse of the month from my Johnny Luv, but still.....  Ah well, I guess I can't have them all (yet).  I remember days when I could get only one House Mouse stamp a year if I was lucky.  The Lord sure has blessed me with abundance and love.

     I have had a life long love affair with gingham, eyelet and polka dots and this card has all three of those.  I really like this Martha Stewart Border punch but I must admit it has me stumped.  For some reason, I cannot get this around the page punch to work correctly.  It never comes out right, I spent three hours and way too much paper trying to figure it out the other night.  I have decided that I will just use it as an edge punch from now on and save myself the frustration.  This little card doesn't have one popped element on it, which is very unusual for me.  It just didn't feel right.  It does however still have some glitter,  I put just a dab of stickles on different spots of the raspberries and it looks like dew - very kewl.

    Re. the PATP set - it's not widely known but the initial paper measurements do vary according to which set you have. Check it out on Google, I can't recall the details but I'm sure your answer will be there. This looks like a wide edge one to me and, as I say, am sure they differ to the narrower one. Hope this helps a bit!


  3. very cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Precious card. I love every element of it. I have quite a few of these little mice, but I've got to go some to catch up with your collection. LOL Thanks for playing along with House Mouse this week and presenting us with such a nice card.

  5. I am the same way, love Gingham, polkadots and eyelet. It is a girly thing. Love the colors on this.

  6. Beautiful card...Like you I'm a big gingham and eyelet fan...reminds me of my sewing days...(don't ask me how long ago that was...LOL) I like how you did the top of your card. I have also had a problem with the PATP punch. sometimes I can get them to work right...sometimes not...I think I will take the advice above and revisit some UTube videos on how to use the punch.

  7. Gorgeous card good luck with the HMFMC124**
