I purchased two baking mice LOTV stamps at the Ally Pally craft fair back when ever it was and this is one of them. Isn't it just adorable? And the perfect stamp for our Food Glorious Food challenge this week. So inspired by the giant hearted and oh so talented Vicky who made the most delightful apron card and recipe box set here (you simply must drop by her blog if you get a chance because her work is Delightful), I made my own apron card.
My DP is from a new Kitchen stack by DCWV and I simply cut my apron shape, faux stitched around the edge and coloured up my meeces with Copics and Promarkers. I added two tiny Prairie Fairy cupcakes as a central button at the top of the apron. These come individually but I merged two together. A couple of ribbon ties, some cutlery brads and a little Dress It Up button are the final touches.
The tablecloth is a gingham stamp by Obsession Impression which has been stamped, photographed at an angle and then printed with the LOTV stamped image cut out and layered over it. This gave it a more tabletop aspect than using the original stamped image because of the change in perspective gained from photographing it. It's a shame the photo isn't very good quality. I can't imagine why but hopefully my closeup of the main image is a little better.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Crafts & Me who simply want us to "stamp something"
Cupcake Crafts who want to see "things with tails"; and of course
Lili of the Valley who have an "anything goes" theme for their 100th challenge this week.
And now for a bit of news...I don't normally share much about my life on my blog but hubby bought us tickets to see Jonathan Ansell on Thursday evening. To say I was a great fan of his when G4 were runners up in The X Factor in 2004 would be an understatement.
For me, he was the cutest thing on TV since Robert Redford in The Sting! Anyway, we both really enjoyed his concert. G4 broke up unfortunately but he was performing with three other very talented singers, it was a great gig, and we had Meet and Greet VIP tickets so we spent an hour with him before the show. I got an autograph, a brief cuddle and even a kiss and he is still gorgeous!
