Stamp Something ,,,,,, Holiday Colours

Sneeze sneeze ,,, sneeze ,,,, achoo !! no i don't have a cold ,, I have hay Fever !! have just taken a pill so hope it works soon !! drip drip ,,, I bear a striking resemblance to Rudolph at the mo' !!

We have a new theme for you on the Stamp Something Challenge,,,,


I took this to mean Red/Green but you can interpret it as you like !! I think Blue and Silver,,, Red Gold are also Christmassy combinations too,, you pick whatever colours you like :-)

We are sponsored by Kut 4 U so a fabulous prize of $20 or £15 depending upon which side of the pond you live :-)

I bought this cute I Cane Count on You House Mousestamp a while ago and have finally got around to inking :-) isn't it CUTE !! :-) I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with a cream pigment ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Sparkle powder. I added star Dust .stickles and Crystal glitter for loads of sparkle The papers are from the Echo Park Merry Christmas Kit . I used a little organza ribbon from my drawer and the lovelt tree charm was a gift from HM& Friends teamie, America :-) I also added a few red pearls from Bunny Zoe Crafts

Did I tell you I found mouse droppings under my kitchen sink ?? Brave little things eh coming into a house with 7 cats,, well 6 cats and a new addition kitten !! Anyway ,, I set a humane trap and yesterday morning there were 2 in there ,,, poor little things were scared to death !! At least they had some lovely Italian panetone and chocolate to eat while they were waiting to be set free :-)

Dutch Dare ,,,,, Christmas
Rainbow Lady ,,, Christmas Animals
Stamps R Us ,,, Holiday Card

Keep It Sweet and Simple said...

Cute! Cute! Cute! I love those little mice... the ones on your card - NOT the ones under your sink!
Reminds me of one we once had in the garage... he would escape the trap but leave something behind - a washer, a screw, a match, some tumble dryer fluff!!! Never did catch him.
