Look what I got!

Tue, 11 Jan 2011

Look what came in the post this morning!

Shelley, whose name you'll have seen in the comments section, sent me this delightful festive card and after a six thousand mile journey through rain, wind and snow it arrived safe and sound on our door mat.

The card is a single piece. The cute mouse folds up and back to make the 3D finished piece. The cute knitted mitt just finishes it off perfectly.

Thanks Shelley, you made my day!

    OH! I see where you mean,

    OH! I see where you mean, Rob! I didn't get this update on my reader for some reason. huh. Well, the little guy arrived a bit late but as you say, he had a hard journey this year! Mark Fullerton, who laser cut these for me, sent a photo of the card he himself got with one arm held up over his eyes and his little nose tucked under the mitten cuff. He called it Shy Mouse!)

    So glad you got him and like him, Rob!

    In any case, yes! I'd be delighted to send along a pdf of the Illustrator file for any of your readers to download and enjoy cutting and folding up. Any old woven cloth could be used to make a little stocking or mitten for him to sit in; an old piece of a sweater or sock, etc.

    I used paint and chalk to color his facial features for a bit of life.

    He's called "Comfort Mouse".
