Christmas in July, again! ;-)



House Mouse & friends monday challenge is having 100th challenge blog-hop celebration! Since I luv our mice (!!), I HAD TO make a card! lol :-) I needed to make a card with "Buttons, Bows and Bling"! First I picked up this heart shaped gingham button which was on clearance section at Joann. For some reason, I really liked it! :-) So, from there, I started to think which house mouse stamp to use, & design of this card! I colored this hot chocolate image. I used sakura gelly roll pen (clear star) for the steam, to give a bit of shimmer. I colored the mice, cut them out, and layered on the image for 3D effect. I used Sizzix embossing folder, coloring the folder with fire brick distress ink, embossed it, and used the same pen to give a bit of shimmer on each petals of poinsettia, and used stickels (red) on the center of flowers. These are all a bit hard to see on the picture though. I'd been wanting to use this banner stamp from lawn fawn for a long time, so I'm happy to use it for the first time! :-) Another christmas card is done. :-) Since I'm one of those stampers who gets panic after thanksgiving, not having many christmas cards done yet, so this is a good thing! lol :-)

I'm also submitting this card to Creative Inspirations Challenge; Christmas in July. :-)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I really appreciate your time & comment! Hope you are all having a great evening! :-)

These little guys are so cute! That banner is great! Perfect embellie for this darling card. I can almost smell the hot chocolate, but where's the marshmallows?
