Christmas House Mouse


I had this House Mouse image stamped and already colored, so all I needed to do was die-cut it with a MFT stitched circle die and add some liquid applique to the fur on his Santa hat. I die-cut a green panel with a Gina Marie Designs stitched square die and added some tiny square geo sparkler stickers. The horizontal border was done with a SU! scalloped border punch, adding 2 pieces of retired SU! woven golden ribbon, along with 2 square gold geo sparkler stickers on either side of the image panel. The sentiment is by SU! teeny tiny wishes and was done with retired SU! label punches, adding 2 tiny round geo sparklers to the sides. The dsp is by Bo Bunny.

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:

the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #406 where I used the following sketch:


CHNC challenge #336= a/g as long as it's Christmas - optional: winter fun

CHNC challenge extra for June - a/g as long as it's Christmas


It might as well be Christmas today as our high is going to be a mere 60 degrees! Summer temps in the 90's will be here by next week, so we're sliding up/down on the temperatures for a few days. This old body is having a hard time adjusting to these drastic changes too! LOL Have a great day and keep smiling :)

How cute!! Love your festive Christmas card today, Carol! Love those stitched dies and the wonderful addition of the fluffy hat! I haven't used Liquid Applique on a card in years! Great holiday colors and love the ribbon & pops of sparkle! Yes, our weather has been all over the place this last week. My back is aching so I have been just laying low. TFS and have a great day! Hugs~
