Three Wise Mice

This is my second DT post today, if you are looking for my Ooh La La Creations card you can find it HERE, or just scroll down to the post below.

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: Add a little Sparkle hosted by Lols - you can also enter a card with an anything goes theme as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image that will be fine.

I have used a fabulous image from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Three Wise Mice Christmas Stamp set.


 I coloured my image with ProMarkers and used papers from the NitWit Collections Festive Trimmings paper pack.  The Pine Boughs are a Sue Wilson die and the Holly is a Punch Bunch punch, I added some white paint and glitter to the edges.


I'm not sure where the snowflake dies came from, I added double sided tape to some card stock before I cut them out and then added glitter.  The gems and little snow balls are from my stash.

Holly Wreath

It's time for a new challenge at Ooh La La Creations and the theme for the next fortnight is Christmas chosen by Susan.

I have used a fabulous image and papers from the Ooh La La Creations The Shawn Jenkins Collection CD to make my card.


My Pyramid Decoupage image and papers are from the collection called Holly Wreath.  The sentiment is from Pink Petticoat printed onto the backing paper and cut out with my Die-namics Fishtail Flag dies. The seam binding bow is the same colour as the card stock in real life - I don't quite know why my camera decided to change the colour!



I added a button and some twine from my stash along with some small red gems.

Christmas Bird

I have made this card to add to my Christmas cards for neighbours, I really do need to get on and do some serious Christmas card making - I'm all behind as usual!


I have used the other image from the set that I used for my card posted on Thursday, I cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die and mounted it on a scalloped circle.  This time I used papers from The Echo Park 'tis the Season collection along with another Pink Petticoat sentiment.


I think I might change the Sue Wilson poinsettia for a slightly smaller one, it overwhelms the image a little doesn't it.
