It has been a long time since I posted any House Mouse cards on my blog. That doesn't mean that I haven't been making them. In fact I taught a couple of classes featuring House Mouse Christmas stamps at Scrapbooks By The Sea. This is one of my favorites. I am going to enter it in the current House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. The challenge is to use gold or silver. I think I spot a bit of gold on this one, don't you?
This stamp is called Deck the Halls and I got it at Scrapbooks By The Sea. I colored the card with Copic markers, but I used some Prisma and Faber Castell colored pencils to highlight the branches. The paper is from Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas collection. Don't you just love this plaid. I swear I think my Mom sewed a dress for me using this same print when I was a little girl. LOL.
The die is a Spellbinder Nestabilities. The gold edges are stickers from Elizabeth Crafts. I also used them as hangers on the inside. The ornament punch is from Stampin Up. The sentiment stamp is from my stash and I am sorry, but do not know the maker. I stamped with Versamark and used Gold Detail embossing powder and heat embossed. The inside border punch is from Martha Stewart.
There are only 5 more days until the Big Guy in the Red Suit slides down your chimney. Are you ready? No? Me either, but I am almost there. It is down to the baking. This is the time of year when my Big Guy gets his knuckles slapped with the spatula. There is something about turning the mixer on that brings him out to the kitchen. He loves to taste and I love to slap his knuckles. LOL. I have to freeze everything immediately or it won't last until Christmas. Jimmy takes his job as the official taster quite seriously.
Wishing you and yours a very safe and blessed holiday season.
