Hello fellow crafters, and welcome to my newest follower, Alison.

Can you believe it is only just over a week until the big day!
My card tonight uses one of the first rubber stamps I bought, more years ago than I can remember. 
Isn't this the sweetest little mouse you've ever seen? Even if you have a phobia about mice, I don't think you could be scared of him. Unfortunately the 3D Glossy Accent on the berries does not show up.
A close-up of the poinsettia, holly and conifer leaves, cut from white cardstock and silver gift wrap. 
Inside the card, decorated to match the front.

I'm off to wrap some pressies I bought for John yesterday, then I will try to get some sleep. It has been dreadfully hot here today (still is), and 'they' have predicted 38 C for us tomorrow.

Happy crafting and thank you for visiting

  1. What a beautiful image and a lovely card! thank-you so much for joining us at the cards galore "Bingo Board" Challenge :) Denyse x

  2. Aww Jennifer this mouse is totally adorable and so beautifully coloured, and your poinsetta and leaves are so pretty. It's amazing that you can have 38 C over there and we have -3 C here ... in fact on Thursday it went down to -4 C and my car door locks were frozen!! Luckily the weather now has turned a bit milder though vbry wet, and I fear part of the UK are in for more flooding!
