House Mouse Again....

Thought I would take the time and make another House Mouse card. Once I start working with these sweet images there's no stopping, they're that adorable. My camera takes the most horrible pictures ever since my son dropped it. Its about time to get a new one already and hopefully I'll be able to afford one soon. 
So, this here is my first time using twine. I love how it adds that extra special look. The embossing folder that I used is called the Elegance M-Bossabilities Folder and it comes from Spellbinders, I only have 4 embossing folders and this one is my absolute favorite. I inked it up to give it a distressed look but unfortunately it didn't turn out to well. The Cuttlebug Spot is having a "Create a Banner" challenge and I thought it would look really cute if I added a little stocking banner to my card. I cut them out of Metallic paper that I bought from the Dollarama a few years back and added a bit of cotton to make them look like real stockings. I think they look really cute. The ribbon comes from the Crop Stop Store.

Let It Snow...

Hi all, its been a while. I sat down yesterday and tried to come up with a design for a card. I have to say that I'm a little disappointing at how it turned out. When it comes to cards I'm more for the elegant cards rather then the clean and simple. I think the ribbon with the flower looks nice though. House Mouse Challenge Blog is having a Let it Snow challenge so that it why I chose to use a House mouse image for this card. I like their challenges and the little mouse stamps are so adorable. The ribbon comes from the Crop Stop Store and the sentiment comes from Marion82 over at When The Scrap Hits The Fun! The flower comes from Jennifer over at JLJ Designs Crafting Blog . I won a huge blog candy from her a few years back and I've been saving the flowers up till now, I'm sure you all know how it is with having one of those items/embellishments that you just can't allow yourself to use. I added some rhinestones on the house mouse image as berries on the bush and also on the sentiment as the berries on the ivy........does that even make sense? That is a definite tongue twister. Well enough with my jibber jabber, here is my card.
