Christmas Card Challenge

Happy Saturday!

I had been wanting to get a Christmas Card done for Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge all week, but just never got to it as I got playing with some Valentines. At about 3 pm, I decided that's it, I'm going to get a card done and headed for the scrap room..... Here is the result. I didn't manage to include a transparency, but I did get another Christmas card done for the 2011 stash - that makes three, woohoo! I had stamped this adorable House Mouse image a couple of weeks ago, but was having trouble deciding what papers to use him with - you know, the image is so cute, didn't want to distract from the image too much....then I realized I was just trying too hard - rather than using patterned papers, I turned to solids from my scrap bin (every bit of CS on the card was from my bin!) which means I also managed to play along with the challenge at Wee Memories this week - use up some scraps!

I also used my new Basic Grey embossing template - one from the two-pack I rec'd for Christmas!
Best go get some laundry done - I always get behind in something if the creative juices are flowing! The best part is that hubby has plans tonight (UFC is on) so he won't be expecting me to hang with him once Chester and Pickle Pants are in bed - scrap space, here we come!
Hope you get some time in your craft space this weekend!
What I used:
stamp: House Mouse - first time I inked it!
embossing template: Basic Grey
cardstock: CTMH - ponderosa pine, cranberry
copics: R05, R08, YR23, Y26, E57, E55, E53, G28, C00

  6. Woweee! LOVE this. It looks so good for NOT using any patterned papers. It is so bold and striking and yet the image still really pops.
    I hope you get some serious crafty time tonight. I don't know what UFV is but I mis-read it at first and thought he was a bit of a Trekkie as I read UFO!
