Chilli eatin' House Meece

Today is my OH's birthday! A friend gave me a House Mouse decoupage sheet from the Food and Drink set - just perfect! He loves hot food and would eat chilli con carne anytime! You can buy the House Mouse decoupage sets here - and postage is free!

I wrote my 'slushy' message before I remembered to take a photo - oops! Here's a close-up of the main part of the card. I just love the little mouse gulping water :)

I made an easel card using cream linen cardstock topped with Core'dinations reddish coloured card, embellished with cream Card Candy. The button was from my stash and I tied a little piece of raffia through the button rather than the usual girlie organza ribbon. From a covering sheet, which comes with all the House Mouse designs, I cut out a little mouse to go alongside the sentiment - thanks for the idea Pauline...........and thanks for the chilli eatin' decoupage sheet!

I tend to sit in bed with my morning cup of tea, tray on lap, snipping out decoupage (I know, how sad is that!) whilst OH watches the early morning news. I actually cut this little lot of decoupage out with him sitting right next to me and he didn't even notice! Hmm, I wonder what THAT says?! :)

BTW, he loved the card! I wonder what will be on the menu for dinner this evening :)



  1. I love the house mousies :) I'd love the decoupage too if it were die cut but I don't think I could snip all round it! My fingers get really achey!

  2. Hi Helena
    I know what you mean - I have to do a little bit at a time :( It's therapeutic in some ways but not kind to arthritic old bidddies like me :) Am sending you an email!
