Here Comes the Mouse Again.....



The challenge over at Jingle Belles is to "Deck the Halls in Pink" - in other words add pink to your holiday cards. For every card entered into the challenge, Stephanie and Lauren will each donate $2 to breast cancer research since October is breast cancer awareness month. Check out the details here on the Jingle Belles blog and help them out by playing along! Not only am I decking the halls in pink - I'm decorating them in fluorescent pink with my favorite little buddy - Cocoa mouse from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

I colored the SNSS image with Copics, adding pink (FRV1) and blue (FB2) fluorescent colors to the cup, then matted it on a SB scalloped square die - which was colored on the edges with the fluorescent pink Copic. I stamped the SNSS sentiment and hand cut it to fit on the SB grommet tag die cut - which was also colored with the same pink Copic marker. I added two tiny button brads and used an old piece of dsp I've had in my stash for years.

Thanks for checking in and have a happy Friday!

I love it when you do a Cocoa Mouse because I know how much you love him. This is a great non-traditional card for someone to receive and to be able to help that wonderful cause makes it all the more special. Wonderful job.
