Carolina Girl (Cely)
It's a House Mouse Hop the next few days.  I would love the chance to win some goodies and it's a great excuse to make a card with one of my House Mouse stamps.  My love for card making began when I purchased my first rubber stamp at Hobby Lobby 8 years ago.....a House Mouse stamp....and the rest is history!

The challenge theme is "Brrrr....It's cold outside" or anything goes as long as you use a House Mouse or one in that family of stamps.

The stamp itself is rather large, so I put the main stamp on the inside of the card, and teased you with a circle burst die window to get your interest.  The bells are from the Silhouette Store.

A2, copics, Memory Box bow and small circle burst dies

another angle of front, pop-ups on bells for dimension

copics and Lil Inker rectangle stitched die

    What a cutie and so clever too! I love how you used the big image on the inside and have the mouse peeking out the die cut on the front. Those little house mouses always make me smile.

    Gorgeous card, Cely ... inside and out! I love that you gave a little sneak peek on the front of the card and the bells and the glimmer of the gold paper really set it off beautifully. Thanks for joining us at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.

    Wonderful window card. Also love your story of how it all started! My obsession started with a card making book - with papers and stencils. It was all downhill from there. I must ask, did your machine cut the gold bows too? What a delicate cut! and LOVE your shadows under your mice. Good luck!

  16. WOW,this is such a lovely card Carolina,it's two cards in one,I love it. Thank you so much for entering it into our Gruffies and Guests challenge and good luck xx
