Preparing for Christmas

Good morning, start of a new week and time for a new challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. This is my last week as a Guest Designer and I've had a great time designing along with the lovely and talented ladies of this friendly team, so thank you very much for having me :)
The  (optional) theme for this challenge is 'Preparing for Christmas', so a good opportunity for adding to my stash of Christmas cards. I used a cling stamp, Elf gifts, which I coloured with copics and glitter pens. Papers and matching ribbon were a gift from my sister. Die cut foliage and sentiment from Tim Holtz. I'm pleased with how this turned out, those little elf- mice are so cute!

Please take the time to check out this lovely challenge over at HMFMC, there's some wonderful inspiration from the team and the prizes are fabulous!

Thanks for visiting my blog today, have a great week.

Chris, you have provided such a marvelous collection of HM cards while guest designing for them. I have thoroughly enjoyed each project. This card is especially adorable with the fun, festive, fantastically frolicking little Christmas Mice! (do you like my alliteration?) Sweet papers, whose layers bring lots of movement to your card, but it is the prettily colored image paired with the sentiment that makes me smile the most. Great story! huggers, de

Oh my gosh, Christmas mice, my absolute favourite! Your image is just darling and how perfect for the challenge theme! Love the paper patterns, I've been trying to find a candy-cane striped paper with no luck! Traditional red and green really are amazing for the holidays, I love this Chris! hugs :)
