Tilda & House Mouse

After taking a break from stamping and sewing a backpack (see post below) I have two cards to show you today. The one I finished first is the House Mouse card so I will show it first. 

 I did this card for the purple challenge over at the purple challenge at the house mouse and friends challenge blog here.  Wouldn't you just love to soak in a hot tub on a cold night. The mouse and cup are colored with copics. I colored the pearls with copics also. Stickles are on all the butterflies. The flower is done by twirling and wrapping the fabric around in a circle and gluing it onto a circle of cardstock. (Wish I could remember where the tutorial for doing this is.)
The next card is made with a Tilda  from the Christmas 2010. I first really noticed amaryllis when we visited the Kukenhauf (?) gardens in Holland when I was pregnant with my first. The trip was not all the comfortable in my condition but the gardens were beautiful. We went back again after my dd was born. Of course she was the prettiest flower there. If I was organized I would show you the picture of her there but alas I am not. Anyway here is the card.

 
Tilda is colored with copics. The shoes and vest are done with the W series, the dress uses R81,83, 85. The rectangle scalloped nestabilities were used. The dp is from basic grey. The little dew drops are from Robin's Nest. 
Hope you enjoyed today's cards.
