JOY to you and me

I made four of these little cuties.  It's pretty CAS, so I was sure to add stitching, pop-ups for dimension, glossy accents on the berries, and a sprinkle of glitter in the snow and leaves. The image is another from the House Mouse Triple CD.  I'm so glad Deloris talked me into it.  Actually, her cards using the set really impressed me.

I've picked out a different Christmas design for family members.  I will only make 10. "Heavens to Betsy" I wish I could send out cards to all my friends, especially all my card crafter friends.  How does one choose without hurting someone else's feelings?  No really, if you have a solution, please drop me an email.

  1. Oh so sweet, Cely! Are these pre-colored images? Fabulous card! I make about 13 for family only! No way I could make for everyone!


  2. Your cards are beautiful. That is a lot of coloring but so worth it and makes for a stunning card. Love those house mouse images. I make a different card for everyone.

  3. Another card to make me smile! Love those little mieces! Sorry I haven't been around much lately. Been super busy.

  4. Cely, this is gorgeous! I just love your coloring. Beautiful Christmas inspiration. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  5. I have so many family members, I'm already sending over 75 cards each year. I really never send to my internet friends. :( Just a lack of time.

    I don't think this card is simple at all! Looks like you put a lot of time into it. The image is cute and gorgeous at the same time! I like how you added the red circle.


  6. Cely, This is so precious! Love House Mouse stamps but have never used their CDs. Will definitely have to investigate that. Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. Awwww how cute are these crimbo meeces..lol great design love the stitching..
    Thanks for sharing with us @ House Mouse & Friends Mon.chall. hope to see you again soon.

  8. Oh My! This is so darn sweet! There's one thing about these darlin' little meeces? They always help each other..FABulous design Cely..
    Great stitching too. x

  9. I love this card Cely and I really don't think its CAS at all! Its got so much going on. The holly in the corner and the sentiment are amazing with their shadow. Besides your stitching it would be hard to add anything else, its perfect as it is!

  10. Wow, wonderful card Celey, I think it is absolutely adorable. You make the best cards!

  11. You are rocking the meeces and this CD Cely! Love all the extra's you add to make the image pop and your card shine! Great card! Thanks for sharing with us at HMFMC! ♥ Sue Kment

  12. This is so adorable. The HM always makes me smile. Thanks, for sharing.

  13. Really? You consider this to be CAS? There's lots of detail! And to make so many of these at once....are they pre colored? I'd never be able to make that many at once. As far as sending out to friends, I also have Stampin Up cards (that are quicker to make) that I send out, along with other cards I try to make throughout the year. One year, I had to stop at the S's because I ran out of cards. So I have no advice, only to not beat yourself over it.
