Dear Santa ...

As I mentioned in the last post, I did not feel much like stamping over the last few weeks, but that doesn't mean I didn't feel up to shopping! This adorable "House Mouse" stamp called "Dear Santa, I ate your cookies" was one of my purchases. I just love this little cookie "thief".

I created today's card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I haven't had a chance to play along for several weeks and it felt great giving this one a try. I also wanted to play along with the "All Creatures Great and Small" challenge over at Moxie Fab World. I love the creative ideas Cath comes up with for the challenges, such a fun variety! You really need to check them out!

I used some Melissa Frances patterned paper for the background panels and colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions' Home Sweet Home set.

Have a terrific weekend!





It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Melissa Frances

Stamps: House Mouse, Taylored Expressions - Home Sweet Home

Ink: Memento Tuxdeo Black, Stampin Up Riding Hood Red
Accessories: Twine, buttons, Dimensionals
