Santa's Cookies - House Mouse Style

     A really fast post this because I've been crafting and at the computer since 5:00 this morning and it's nearly midnight now.  I dug through my House Mouse collection and found this adorable stamp.  I'm sure this is what happens to lots of Santa's cookies.  :-D


I used the colors in the challenge at Color My Heart.



     I stamped with stone gray distress ink and colored with ProMarkers, then die cut with dies from Spellbinders.  I actually used the frames from the outside of the die cuts instead of cutting the image piece itself.  It gives some great texture and dimension.  The bow is made with satin ribbon from my stash.

     I'll have to finish this post a bit later.  Right now, it's late enough that I'm about to fall asleep right here and now.  The bed is calling me and I'm going to answer by strolling down the hallway and taking advantage of the fact the the felines have been sleeping there for long enough to warm the covers with their little bodies.  Good night and Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

  2. Well I hope you and the felines got a good night's sleep. You sure earned it after yesterday and all your creative goodness. That little mouse sure was lucky to snag up some of those cookies. Now I think I'll have to make some cookies today. Somedays your posts are not good for me, Connie, but I love everyone of them anyway. LOL
