Holiday Cheer

This card was made for Jen's Sketch For You To Try. I decided to use one of the House Mouse images that my sweet friend Donna sent me! Isn't the mouse just the cutest? I've never owned any House Mouse images, but I have friends who absolutely LOVE them. Thanks again, Donna, for sending me these adorable images! I used patterned paper from the DCWV Christmas Glitter Stack. It has sparkle in all the right places! :) I colored the mouse in with ink pads and a blender pen, and then went over his hat with red and clear Copic Spica markers. Can I just say I LOVE those markers! I got them at Ellen's store. They add the perfect sparkle without the glue or lumpiness you sometimes get with glitter.

I can't believe the weekend is almost over already! They go so fast! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- House Mouse, Holiday Treats (Papertrey Ink); Paper- DCWV Christmas Glitter Stack and Fall Stack; Ink- Basic Black, Ruby Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Bordering Blue (SU); Accessories- blender pen, horizontal slot punch, red grosgrain ribbon, white polka dot organdy ribbon.
