Believe in the magic of Christmas

I'll repeat myself once more... I fell in love with card making when I discovered a House Mouse stamp at Hobby Lobby years ago.

Winter's Nap is what I'm using for my card.  Yup...using the large circle burst this time around.  The challenge #183 at House Mouse is: Add a little sparkle  I add diamond sickles to the flame.

A2, copics for coloring, MB bow die, gold foil card stock, glitter

  4. This card is too too cute, I love it and those house mouse images are a favorite here too. Great look to the card with colors and love the gold on the side.

Happy thanksgiving to you and your family.. Hugs.

  6. Hi Cely, another wonderful card creation! Love this image and you have done an awesome job coloring it up. The image peeking out from inside the card is wonderful. Traditional Christmas colors look great. Thanks for joining us for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

    PS, I popped your candy win in the mail this morning, should have it on Tuesday.

  8. This is absolutely superb Cely, makes me want to get my circle burst dies out again!
    I bought the small buttons especially to make my tree card. I spotted them in The Range ( a store chain over here) when I was shopping for something else. Then I found some even smaller ones in my stash from years ago so maybe another button tree is in the offing :o)

  9. That top photo lit from above really adds a glow to the inside of the card. Makes it look like the candle is doing its job.

    I really like how the circle is offset to the right, giving you room for your clever note card! Beautiful.

    I'll be crafting today, hopefully with my new paper. I picked up six different packs!


  10. I still love that Circle die set and one of these days, I really am going to get it. I love House Mouse, too, and I do believe one of my very first stamps was a House Mouse with Maxwell doing something adorably cute. :-D This image is precious. And I also believe in the magic of Christmas.
