Happy thoughts

I've been busy in my craft room the past few days, getting ready for another tv show taping. I usually stamp and color a couple of the same images and I had this one extra mouse image on my table and decided to make something with it. It's from a new cling stamp set called "Happy Thoughts".
I recently bought this new Martha Stewart punch called "rose window" and you can punch anywhere on your paper using this punch. It comes apart in 2 pieces and is magnetic and you place your paper in between the 2 pieces and punch it out.
I used Sizzix's XL popcorn box die and punched the middle of the box using the MS punch. Then embossed the box with the curlique hearts embossing folder. I wasn't planning on making a shaker with this but it ended up being one. The heart punch is also a magnetic punch called "studded heart".
And because I'm such a klutz (always tripping and walking into things), I dropped the box on my slippers at the top of the stairs and the glitter glue on the heart rubbed on my slippers. That is why part of the heart has no glitter on it.
Well, hope you're staying dry and warm today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!

Whoa, that's a good use for the new punch. I like how you accented the window with crystals. The mouse stamp is really cute. I'm looking forward to the new projects you will demonstrate on TV.
