Warm Winter Wishes

Hi folks,
I have a card to share with you.
I tried to step away from the Magnolias,
but I am not so sure that was a good idea!!
My husband just kept saying,
"The mouses don't make any sense."

I am late on many of the challenges I made this for,
except for Stampin' For The Weekend
whose challenge is to use blue and brown,
and House Mouse Monday Challenge
whose challenge is nontraditional Christmas and
Stamp Something is having a
Winter Wonderland Challenge.
The sketch is from the previous fortnights
Creative Inspirations challenge.
Only 5 days late, that's not so bad...

The image is called CloseKnit Friendship by House Mouse,
coloured in distress inks and popped up
on foam dots for dimension.
The dotted paper is K&Co. and the flakes are MME.
The snowflake punch is MS,
coated in MS glitter and waterfall Stickles,
pins, lace and gems, the pretty goodies are from my stash
and the doiley, hahaha, it is by Wiltons....

I hope everyone out there is
doing okay with their Christmas agendas!!
I spent an hour in the post office today
and just have a few more things to make
before I can say I am done.
Would anyone like to make some fudge for me
and ship it out ASAP??
Any takers??? No!??? Nuts!!!
Take Care,

Tell your husband that the mice just like to get into mischief like getting tangled in a ball of yarn! This is a really cute card Stephanne! I love the blues and browns and the pretty snowflakes!

So cute! Love the colours...the mice could be warming up in winter...or all tangled up over the stresses of buying and wrapping pressies at Christmas time...I like it!

This image is adorable, and I love the brown and blue! Is that a paper doily behind the mats? Brilliant!

Sue said...

They make perfect sense....They are keeping warm in the cold blast we are having!!! Great colors and their little faces actually come alive in that yarn...great coloring. Love that lacey edge and the glittery flakes. Very nice.
