Barn Mouse

Over at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog they are having a back to school or anything goes challenge, I don't need a back to school card but I thought I would share this cute mouse celebrating a birthday in the barn :) I bought this barn door slider die at the Stamping convention and I am finally getting around to using it.  Every one I could find people were only using a sentiment on each side and I wanted to do an image on one side and the sentiment on the other, that is where this cute mouse came in, his little tail goes to the other side, but I didn't mind that.

When you slide the door over it reveals the sentiment.

I used a wood embossing folder for the door, rubbed my ink on the raised portions and added some nail marks with my sharpie pen. The little door handle comes with the die kit.

This is so so cute. I love House Mouse and I love the sliding door. I know I've seen this door before. Thinking it might have been on Heidi's blog. You do such cute work.
