So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

You Put the Merry in Christmas

This is for House-Mouse and friends Monday Challenge #101 (Website). The challenge was to create an ATC (Artist Trading Card that is 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches) and use Mouse House stamps. It is a VERY little space! I used the House Mouse Christmas Clear Stamps and stamped with Black Tuxedo Memento on white gkd cs which I had spritzed with red and green Smooch spray. The base was red gkd cs, the dp was Basic Grey Jovial pack. I stamped the mouse twice and cut out one to pop on top of the other on the card. Colored with Smooch, Copics, added some Polar White Flower Soft and the spritzed with gold/silver shimmer. Added a bow and some candy embellishments and I decided it could be perfect for a tag for a gift! Or maybe could use it as the front of a gift card pocket...Hmmm??NOW that might just work!!!! :-)


  1. Lovely Christmas ATC great colours it's so lovely and the candy for embellishments is a great idea. Thank you for joining us at house mouse and friends. Gemma (GDT Aug) x
