A Blog Hop for a Cutie

It is time for a Paper Makeup Stamps Blog Hop and this month's theme is Oldies But Goodies!  Since I am the first stop on the Hop past the PMS Blog, you are in the right spot!  But do make sure to check out the PMS Blog for all of the details on the prizes to be won!


I pulled out an oldie that hadn't seen any ink yet...one of the Retro Cutie Critters: Lucy Mouse.  She is all dressed up (purse and all) and ready to go!  I actually didn't use a sketch for this card (I know, I gasped too!), but then again my layout is pretty basic.  But sometimes simplicity is the key.  Lucy was stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black on watercolor paper and then I watercolored her with ink pads and an aquabrush.  The pattern paper is from a very long retired Bali Breeze from Stampin' Up! The sentiment is from the Cutie Critter Sayings that perfectly matches some of the Retro Cutie Critters...I think it is about time to add an addition to the sayings for the new critters!  The color choice comes from the current Color Throwdown Challenge #153.


Now you are off to Anita's Blog to see what kind of Oldie she has in store for you.  Once you finish the hop, make sure to jump over to Paper Makeup Stamps and fill a cart with some of these Oldies (some of them are even on Sale too!).  Thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!

This is so pretty Andrea! I love Lucy (so appropriate for Lucy's 100th birthday...I'm watching her show right now!). But I really love this Lucy mouse and your card!
