Birthday card and Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!
One of my former German Au Pairs' son is celebrating his fourth birthday! She took care of my daughter when she was four and now she has 3 children of her own - the last two are twins. We have been staying in contact ever since she was with us, so naturally her son is getting a card!
Except for the sentiment, which is from Papertrey I used all German stamps. The mouse and the elephant are from a famous TV show and the middle one is from probably the most well known German children's book author named Janosch. His books have been translated into English and some are available in the US. I always was and still am a big fan of his drawings.
For the windows I used the Papertrey Take Tree die, the balloon is a Marvy punch. I colored the stamps after I fuzzy cut them with pencils, the eyes are done with white enamel.
And if you want to know more about THE MOUSE you can watch this short video clip:
I wish all of you mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day - enjoy! I will be in Vermont, so no posts from me over the weekend.....
Thank you all for your lovely comments - as always they are very much appreciated and treasured!
