Hello Blogging Friends,

I am happy to announce that I am now a Design Team Member of the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Design Team!!  I absolutely LOVE all critters ~ great and small ~ so I think this is a perfect match for me!

This is the 9th Challenge for 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

Our sponsor for December is:

Sasayaki Glitter

For this challenge I choose the Tea Mouse digital image to make my cards:


For the December Challenge I made two cards.  I wanted to show you that this adorable mouse could be used for Christmas or for a Birthday or even a Just Because card!!

Here is my first card:

I printed out the Tea Mouse onto white paper and then I colored in the image with Copic markers.  I then cut it out with the Gina Marie Designs Big and Little Pierced Chain Hexagon dies and inked the edges with red ink and put it on the side.  I took some white card stock to make the base of this A2 card.  I took the green and red striped paper, inked the edges with red ink and added that to the card base.  I added the hexagon with the Team Mouse digi image to the center of the card.  I took some DL.ART Christmas Red crinkle ribbon from the Traditional Christmas Bundle and made a bow and attached that to the top left hand side of the card.

Here is my second card:

For this A2 card I printed out Tea Mouse digi stamp, colored it in with Copic markers and then fussy cut it out.  I started with a white card stock for the base of the card. I took a piece of patterned paper, inked the edges with lavender ink and then attached it to the base of the card.  I cut out some white paper with the Prima doily die, cut it in half and attached that to the card.  I attached the fussy cut Tea Mouse on top of the doily, then I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment with black ink onto the card.  I added some sequins and gem dots to the card.  I took some purple and white bakers twine and wrapped it around the card several times and then tied a knot in the twine.

I just love this sweet Tea Mouse!!!  And I hope you do too!!  Be sure to stop by the Sasayaki Glitter store to check out all her adorable and fun digis!!
