The Good Mouse

Hello my friends.  Let me just say "It's good to be back" and I hope I don't wonder off again.

I wanted something to get my mojo going and I decided to look at my favorite challenge blog and see what they had to inspire me.  Sure enough  the Double "D" Tea Time Challenge was just the ticket.

Add in a bit of Christmas and I was all in grabbing, paper, makers, dies, the silhouette and this sweet image. Soon I was in that familiar happy zone. My craft room, not so much. A little mouse can really create havoc! 

I think I might call her Nelly the Mouse. 

And a new thing for me.... Completing my cards on the outside and inside at the same time. 

Dies - Sue Wilson (outside), Spellbinder (inside)
Image - Mo's Digital Pencil 
Stamp - Miracles by Stampabilities
Medium - Copic Markers
Accessories - Silhouette Cameo (striped bow and card shape)

Double "D" Tea and/or Coffee Time

  10. Oh, Gail! This is the cutest little mouse in the Christmas cup, and I giggled when I realized she was sleeping under her warm blanket! How darling and exquisitely colored! You are the master of coloring and of the Silhouette! I love the die you've used and the beautiful colors! So glad you are making cards again and finding joy in them! You sure bring smiles to our faces! Hugs and love, sweet friend! xoxo
