House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

House Mouse & Friends Challenge #14 - All About Christmas
Our challenge this week is to make anything Christmas related. Thanks go out to Jennifer for coming up with this weeks challenge....and for sponsoring! You know what that means.....A PRIZE!! WOOHOOO.

Make anything you want with a Christmas theme - just make sure to use at least one House Mouse or Friends image. For all the details on the challenge and prize - click HERE.



This House Mouse stamp is called Stocking Full of Love. Isn't it adorable! I colored with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. Crystal Snow Glitter on the ground for sparkle. I used a white gel pen to add snow falling in the sky. The background was embossed with a snowflake embossing folder on textured cardstock. Sentiment stamp from A Muse Art Stamps.

Oh, Lori, what a cute card! Your little mousie friends look so warm and cozy in their little stocking. I love the yarn you used to accentuate the snow. Looks cold out there, but they look nice and toasty.
