Sleeping Mouse

I just LOVE mice!  Not the real ones of course, but any other kind of mouse just makes me happy.  They're kind of like a teddy bear - makes you want to give them a hug!


This little guy (or gal - I wonder how you tell the difference in a male and female mouse.....Um...something to think about for sure) is Bigsby in a Wreath from Karen's Doodles.  The sentiment is from Stampabilities and I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on this.  After coloring and cutting out the image I popped it up on dimensions and then added some Glossy Accents to the Christmas balls.  It sure seems early to be really getting with the program on Christmas cards but guess it'll be here before you know it.

Sorry I don't have another Funny Friday for you this week - maybe next week.  Hopefully I can find some time to create this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by..........
Lynn

Love this Christmas card! Adorable image and a nice clean, classic card to showcase it. Not too early for Christmas cards, I don't think, as it will be here before too long at all.

Lynn, this is beautiful. Wow you are really good atfussy cutting as well as coloring. It's has such a nice touch of elegance. The white really pops against the red card stock. Fabulous card. Hope things are going well for you.

This card is just so cute. Love that image and the fact you popped it up on dimensionals. The touch of glossyness to the Christmas bulbs is perfect.
