Merry Little Christmas Mouse

Good morning,

Hope you're all having a great Wednesday. This has been a very busy week. There's been no time for cardmaking, but I managed to stay up late last night and made this little Christmas card. Don't know if the colors even match, as I'm so bleery-eyed from lack of sleep, lol! The pp and ribbon are from my stash and I cut the red scalloped border with Cricut Stretch Your Imagination cart. I used my white gel pen for the dots. The little mouse is a drawing from Elizabeth O. Dulemba and he's colored with MCPT, cut out and mounted on foam tape.

I have to go to the funeral of an old friend today. I hadn't seen her in almost a year and she passed away suddenly on Sunday. Our daughters were best friends in high school and we used to see each other several times a week. I'm so very sad for her family. Give your Mom a hug today and call your friends.

Thanks for stopping by everyone.

This is an adorable card! I can't get over how you cut out your images. I just don't have the patience or the fine motor skills to do it. The image is so cute. So sorry to hear of your loss. I'll be thinking of you today and praying for their family. Hugs to you, Janis

Thanks so much Janis! I have a pair of extremely sharp Cutterbee scissors that I cut with. They are so sharp that I've even cut myself! They work really well for cutting small areas.
Thank you for prayers. We never know do we?

Thank you so much DeNetra. Her kids are being very strong for their Dad. He's not doing very well right now.

Thanks for your sweet comment about the card!
