Twinkling Tuesday #17

This week's challenge is~"In With The Old - make your project using a stamp that you have never used before. You know the ones you HAD TO HAVE but have sadly never seen ink? Pull 'em out and let's see!
Sadly I have many in this category lately. I always tease my friend, Kristie, about her not using her stamps well I think I might be gaining on her in that catagory! Have to change that soon!! So I hope to see her do this challenge too...hehehe!!
I'm laughing at myself. As I'm typing this up, trying to decide which stamp to use, I'm also surfing some stamp sites looking for MORE to buy! It's a sickness!! LOL!! But a fun one!
Even though there were many to choose from, I decided on this cute House Mouse one that I wanted for Easter. Well here it is just a few days before Easter and I haven't even thought of Easter cards!!
Be sure to check out Madelynn's blog to see how you can join in the fun with us. Also check out all the twinklettes to see their wonderful creations!! (their links are on the left side, over there <---- data-blogger-escaped-div="">
I used glaze pens on the jelly beans so they'd have a shine to them. The flame of the candle I drew in and used stickles on it. I used a white background with this so all the bright, happy colors would show up nicely.

As I was trying to decide what to do inside the card I figured I'd use another House Mouse stamp that I bought for Easter and haven't used. I just love these little guys!

supplies:
card size: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
stamps: Dreaming of Jelly Beans. This Egg's For You-inside, TAC I Love Easter-sentiment
paper:
others: prismacolors, OMS, glaze pens, spiced marmalade stickles, swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder, granny smith bella baubles, stardust pen, CM cutting system, SU word window punch, CM fine tip pens,
