Silver and Gold



I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I sure did! Now if I could only stop eating all the cookies and candy before I explode! LOL!

I was able to pull myself away from all the holiday cheer so I could share this card a card with you. Actually...I had it done before Christmas...but for some strange reason (*cough*lazy*cough*)  I just couldn't find time to snap a picture of it. Well I FINALLY pushed myself do it and get it posted for the House-Mouse challenge we have going on right now.

House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #160 - Use Silver and/or Gold. Get all the challenge & prize details on the blog HERE


As you can see....I've got PLENTY of silver and gold in my project. I think Mudpie is getting ready to ring in the New Year!  This stamp is beyond adorable. It's called Joyous Noel. The sentiment is from a Paper Smooches stamp set called Joyful Greetings. I used colored pencils and OMS to color images. Copic marker and blender pen to shade the background.

Check out the closeup to see even more details. The flag banner is popped up for dimension. I did a bunch of embossing, glitter, shimmer paints and pens, etc. I had glitter EVERYWHERE...and it was AWESOME!


Because of Christmas & New Years...this challenge goes until Jan 11th, 2014. So you still have plenty of time to join in. I would love to see what you create with your House-Mouse stamps.
