Nice and Squeek...Hmmm....I Mean Sweet

Hello Peeps,

Hope everyone is well!  A warm welcome to my blog's new followers!!  Very glad to have you! 

I have been going through card making/blog withdrawal as I have been busy getting costumes ready for Halloween.  We are all dressing up as puppies and the costumes my husband and I found needed a lot of love.  They finally look like puppies, so I immediately headed into my craft room to get my 'fix.'  I tried to make a CAS vintage card - not sure if I pulled it off with the mice!  What do you think?


Image:  House Mouse - I cheated again and used a sticker, though someone will undoubtedly compliment me on my colouring job ;).
Sentiment: Hot Off the Press Christmas Stamp and Punch
Paper: MME Lost & Found Christmas
Ink: Distress Ink vintage photo
Other: Gold Stickles following swirly pattern in corner and on star, star and oval cut with cricut

This card was inspired by the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - CAS
Totally PaperCrafts - Glitter it
ABC Christmas - V is for Vintage
Jingle Bells - Not a creature was stirring (these mice are obviously not familiar with that one)
Papertake Weekly - for the wonderful sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes

Thanks for taking a peek and for taking the time to leave a comment - I really appreciate them and love having the chance to take in your creations too.  Have a great week and a safe and happy halloween!





Hi Dawn
