Sleepy stocking

Hey, hey! How was your weekend? Good, I hope. I was a good girl - I made several Christmas cards. Yay for me!! lol I can't show you many of them just yet (because I made them for the Christmas advent event that we'll be having at Crafty ribbons in December - see below for more information), but I can show you this one ...

My friend let me borrow her House Mouse stamp and I couldn't wait to play with it. I never thought I'd say this, because I'm scared of these little creatures (mice), but ... Aren't these mousies adorable? I love them! I had quite some problems with putting this card together, because I couldn't find the right papers. But this was a good excuse for me to do some shopping today. He he. I coloured the image with distress inks. The green and red DPs are from Provo Craft and I created the brownish papers myself (I used white cardstock, TH distress inks, Memento rich cocoa ink pad and Kaisercraft and Stampabilities stamps). I distressed the edges with my scissors and then inked them with TH brushed corduroy distress ink. The star ribbon you see on top of my card is from Folia. I used Nellie Snellen star dies for the stars. The sentiment (Merry Christmas) was cut from one DP that I had in my stash. Once I cut it out I inked the edges, raised it on foam pads and glued it on the card. The sentiment was already covered with glitters, so this was a bonus. :)

I hope you like it! Hugs! xx

  1. Awwh, this is so adorably cute hunny, who could be scared of those little darlings! Gorgeous card. Hugs xx

  2. This is just cute as can be. It's one of my favorite images and you colored it perfectly. Your sentiment is lovely and what a great cutting job you did on it. I know how you feel about being afraid of real mice, but who can resist these? Be careful, House Mouse images can be addicting, which is a very good thing. Nice to see you join us here a House Mouse & Friends this week. We do hope to see more of you in the future.
