Chocolate is Cheaper than Therapy...........


I found this stamp when I was rummaging through my stuff, I totally forgot that I had bought it just before we went to the States in April. Moving backwards and forwards between two countries is always good from that point of view - I totally forget what stamps I have in each place, and it's like seeing old friends when I get back.

Anyway, this is the first outing for this little mouse, I stamped it three times, once on white, once on patterned pink paper, and once on aqua gingham. I cut out the box from the pink, and the bow from the gingham, and pop-dotted them on. The mouse was coloured with watercolour pencils, and I covered the chocolates in diamond glaze to make them glossy. The stamp is called Sweet Slumber by Penny Black. The sentiment is from one of the new Inkadinkadoo $1 stamps.
