Sock Hopping!


Well, here we are in mid December!  Where has the time gone?  I decided to do a second entry for the House Mouse Monday Challenge blog.  The theme is still "Fuzzy and Warm", as the challenge is an extended one due to a deserved break by the design team.  As I looked at this card, I thought "What can be warmer than 3 mice hopping across a piano wrapped in holiday stockings?'.

I used a black Pure Luxury card base, some green dotted swiss paper from my scrap bin, and a paper panel I designed for my background using a musical background from Nina Brackett.  Of course there is my house Mouse stamp which I cut out and half popped off the card to give dimension.  Their stockings are glittered with MS mica flake glitter.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I added holiday ribbon, twine, and a button! Coloring is with Copics, and sponging with Distress Ink.

That's it for me this morning. Lots to do and none of it is fun.  Have a great day!

Mary Anne,
How cute is this one, you have some of the most amazing stamps. When I look at the house mouse stamps I sure don't see this much fun in them. I keep wondering what cutie your going to do next. I love the mice and the look of the stamp but my imagination just doesn't come to life like yours. Thats why I purchased boring Christmas images. LOL
