Christmas with the Mouse!


While digging through my unfinished stash, I found a small dark green pre-cut SB labels 18 and decided to put it to use. I dug through my stamps and found this cute little HM stamp and thought he'd look cute on a stitched circle die. Since the labels 18 was already edged with a gold paint pen, I added gold paint pen highlights to the little ornament and spatters on the ground beneath him. I found the random piece of striped dsp and a piece of celery-colored cardstock, and tied the image panel onto it with neutral twine. The sentiment was done in Hunter Green ink with a G Studio stamp.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Craftyhazelnut's CHNC #305 - anything goes as long as it's Christmas



This card is going into my box for the Caring Hearts card drive, and I hope if you have any extra Christmas cards to share, you can send them to this worthy cause. They're distributed to nursing homes throughout the US, Canada, and Australia. Click the link above, or click the image on the top of my sidebar to get all the details.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Well anyone that receives a card from you is very lucky (I know from experience) but this one will certainly make someone's day. I thought I had this image but I haven't seen it in quite a while. I will have to do some deep digging. I love that gold paint pen on the dark green and I really like the circle on that die cut piece. I will be casing that for sure. You designer paper looks like it was made especially for this card and that dark green label. This card is just a treasure.

What a sweet card. I like that stripey paper behind your layered shapes. The twine and the way it is anchoring the label 18 shape is cool.

This is the sweetest Christmas card Carol! I love that little mouse image, he is just too cute. And he works perfectly on the label die cut you found in your stash. Love the paper you used on the background as well. Hugs, Brenda

The deep green snippet label really sets of this cute Santa Meece peeking out of the ornament. Love the way you've done the tie too. Looks really nice on the bright Christmas stripes. TFS &Hugs

This tiny little stamp is one of my favorite HM Christmas stamps. The look on his face is priceless! Love how you mounted him and the way you used the string on the ends. Striped paper background looks great too. Thanks for sharing with us and joining the fun at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.
