Christmas Mice

Once again I'm here with a Christmas card.  I'm trying so hard to do at least one a month for now and having the Rudolph Days Challenge seems to help me do just that.

I'm also back with another Penny Black stamp.  I just love all the stamps in that set and will be using each one of them I'm sure.  AND, to top it all off, I colored this with the Prisma's!  I'm not great using those pencils but keep on trying.  There's must be some kind of  trick to the shading that I haven't mastered yet - and may never.  It actually looks pretty good on this one though.   I added a small pine tree, some patterned paper, hillside borders die cuts, sequins, snowy looking embossing folder, and ribbon.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

I'm really under the wire on entering this in the challenge there.    I actually thought there was at least one more day in this month.  Time flies!  

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

Oh my gosh, what a CUTE CUTE card! Those critters look so cute all bundled up on their sled, ready to hit the slopes for some sledding fun :) Love that little tree with the sequins too! Adorable Christmas card!

Such a cute card Lynn. Love that image and reminds me of my childhood sledding down the high hill street across from where I lived. It's a wonder we didn't get killed.

So adorable, Lynn. I love absolutely everything you did on this card! Your coloring is fantastic. I don't know why you think you haven't 'mastered' them yet. :-D All the little die cuts work so well to enhance the darling mice and I love the embossing on the background. Do you know who made that particular 'snowy' folder? I think I need one.

You have blended and shaded beautifully on this, Lynn! It's hard to get the pencils to blend this well, IMO. An adorable Christmas card!
