A Mousy Kind of Christmas


Lots of dots on this card - right!!  Well, I do love polka dots but may have gone a tab bit overboard on them.  Still a fun card to ship out for Christmas!  The little mouse and sentiment are from Paper Smooches. Gotta love those mice you know.  I added some SU patterned paper and Cherry Cobbler card stock, a snip of twine, and some enamel dots.  Also did a tiny bit of stitching on the card stock. 

I'm following the sketch below in order to enter this in the Paper Smooches Sparks challenge this week.  I'll also enter it in Moving Along with the Times Challenge (furry friends)


I know I haven't had a Funny Friday in ages....and am working on that.....so stay tuned.

Note:  I just got a comment yesterday on here saying that some type of advertisement was showing up on my blog.  I really have no idea what it could be but I'm not seeing it.  If you're stopping by and see something like this I apologize.  Any ideas on how to get rid of that would be appreciated too!

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

I love your cute, cute mouse....so adorable. I am a polka dot lover, too, and I sure don't think you can have too many. Such a pretty card. I love it.

I've never seen an ad when I've visited your blog.

I left two comments thinking the first one didn't take.....just delete one.

You can never have too many polka dots, especially in the colors on this paper. Great faux stitching also. A real fun card, Lynn, and I really like that layout. I don't see any advertising today and I'm sure I didn't see any yesterday either. And even if I did I would have no idea in this world how to get rid of it. LOL Enjoy your weekend.

I love any kind of mouse on a card (just not the real variety) and this one is super cute with all those polka dots!
I saw the advertising a couple days ago, but it isn't showing today!

Lynn, a perfectly adorable holiday card! Such a delightful little guy!

Yes, I see an Ad in the bottom right - but it's of an adorable puppy if it's any consolation! :) You also have one on your comment box (from pizza, to cars, etc) Check your layout design - you might have an attachment (even w/out permission) for google ads.

Oh this is just adorable (quite a different look from that beauty yesterday, but you're so versatile in your designing!)Your little critters always bring a big smile when I see them scroll up. I LOVE your polka dot paper, and so right with the little cutie meecie. Great stitching too, BTW. And I am not seeing any ads or anything different on your blog. Some squirrely things about on the internet. So safe blogging for all of us. TFS & Hugs.

NanaConnie said...

What a fat, happy little mouse, Lynn! I love the polka dots -- no such thing as too many or too much. :-D Love the gold twine and that darling sentiment.

Shelly Schmidt said...

Love that well fed mouse image- and all of the polka dots too! Perfect Holiday colors- and love the dots! I do not see any pop-up ads.....

Nancy in Iowa said...

Adorable card! Oh how I do love polka dots!!
Love the gold thread/floss.
Yes I saw a pop up video ad when I clicked in to check to see what you have been up to. No idea how to delete it. It plays then goes away. Weird!

Jessi Fogan said...

I didn't see an ad - but I do have a pop-up blocker? You've gotta hate that. Ugh. I hope you can figure it out!
This card is purely adorable - I just bought this set finally (had to have the Fleas Navidad, lol)

Monica said...

He is so cute... and I like the sentiment so as well as the paper. The gold cord and faux stitching look very nice as do the white dots over the scallops.

Love,
Monica

Di said...

Adorable!! Such a cute mouse and I love all the dotty dots :)

Hugs, Di xx

Darnell J Knauss said...

This card is a hoot, Lynn! You should make a little snippet of cheese hanging from that gold bow and bring it over for show and tell at the Playground!! And, BTW, you can NEVER have too many polka dots!! Hugs, Darnell

Joan Ervin said...
