We have a festive challenge for you in December. This will be a long one so that the team can take a little holiday break.  Watch for a midway reminder though-we don't want you to forget us! The next challenge will start January 7th, so you have plenty of time to unwind after the holidays by making a House Mouse creation for the challenge.

For today's card a used a pop out card and added my sweet candy cane meecies-Candy Joy. I used a sentiment from Tim Holtz Scribbly Christmas set. I used my trusty Martha holly punch and also added a couple linen thread bows. The paper is from Echo Park.

I cut outduplicate candy canes and added them on top of the original image for some fun dimension too. They certainly do look like they loooovvve their candy!

Expecting a new little Reindeer!


I am expecting a new little "great nephew" reindeer into the family in the next couple of weeks.  I was blessed with being there when his Dad was born so I am excited to meet little Easton when he gets here soon.  Although I have not had much time to craft...I could not send a present without some little crafty touch from Aunt Susie :). I used this reindeer tag designed by Jennifer Rush. I added a white insert inside for the sentiment. I also used red mirror paper for his nose-perfect for a little Rudolph.


I bought new baby boy a reindeer outfit to welcome  him home. He will be lucky if he gets to wear it once, but I am sure it will make for some fun pictures!

His reindeer ensemble! Love the little hat with the antlers too. 

Don't these just make you smile?

Just a quick post today before I head out to the door to visit family! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend.

Penny Black Reindeer Pup Treat Bag










Anything But a Card...
Mid Way Reminder


Yes, I do love my doggie...and he loves his treaties!  

I made this fun little box by joining a tall box cut file and  a tree 'window' to it so you could see the little treaties.  I used this box pattern--3d Lori Whitlock Tall Treat Bag and an outline of the tree from Tree Christmas Box.  I added a snow bank with my Lawn Fawn dies and made the sentiment on my computer with Good Dog Cool font. (love that font).

My doggies are from the Penny Black stamps Reindeer Pup and Spotty(maybe found on ebay?)


I am sharing with the following challenges:





He is waiting for his treats...

Of course, you also have the "ANYTHING GOES" option too, so join the fun!  As long as you use a House-Mouse Designs(R) House-Mouse Friends /Happy Hoppers, or, Gruffies image stamped/decoupage or CD rom.




I chose to go with the Anything Goes Option as I am sooo far behind with my Christmas cards...!!!

For my card today I used the cute little meecie stamp HMCV10 Cling Finishing Touch.
I paired this holiday image with The Story of Christmas  Echo Park 6x6 paper and a cut file named A2 front easel card, both designed by Lori Whitlock. I used a sentiment from the Silhouette Store named Cookies for Santa Phrase designed by Kollette Hall. I did a print and cut after adding the phrase on to the front panel. I used clear Wink of Stella on the bell for an added touch of glitter.  Pretty easy!


This folds flat for mailing.


Side view 

Front panel folded open.  I added white panels inside so I could write a message.

A couple other paper choices.

Hanging on for dear life! 

It appears this little meecie is doing Chin Ups...more than likely trying to burn off some of those extra Christmas cookie calories!

I colored this stamp with copics and  added it to a  card base that was cut to fit with my Silhouette.  I used some Echo Park paper(The Story Of Christmas) and Lawn Fawn stitched ovals to mat my image. The sentiment is a long ago purchased $1 Studio G stamp. the flag was cut with my Silhouette and the little holly is a Martha punch. Pretty simple..but festive!  I hope you can join us for the final week of this challenge-we would love to see your creations!

Penny Black Anything but a card...Ragged Angel








Anything but a card...



I love this project!  I knew when I saw this lantern cut file from Sandra's Scrap Shops Lantern Pattern #25 it would be a perfect partner to my new Penny Black Ragged Angel cling stamp.
This is a large stamp-4 inches tall but doesn't she looks so petite next to this lamp post lantern?  The embosssed sentiment Merry Christmas is a cling stamp-Retro Christmas Script from Stampendous.
I added a 2 inch ring to the top of the lantern cut from brushed silver paper and also added a couple holly branches cut with my Silhouette as well. The snow was glittered before attaching and I also used a shimmery liquid pearls under the window panes. The window paper is polka dot vellum.



Isn't she just the sweetest thing???


Inside the lantern I added a battery operated flame candle.  This one was black and glittery(a Halloween mark down purchase!) so it worked perfectly!

Happy Halloween! Candy Huggers and Mini Monsters


Trick or Treat!!!



I made these Halloween treat holders Saturday and then was gone all day Sunday...so just getting around to posting these! I do hope you enjoy them.  Trick or Treat!!!





This is a Lori Whitlock Frankenstein treat holder. I enlarged it quite a bit so it would hold  full size candy instead of miniature size. I made 3 of these for my grandsons and a dear friends son.



These were the easiest to make, although they were all super easy!  I made 6 of these.

\





Mini Monsters-This was such a cute file from Lettering Delights...and super easy so I made 12 of these. The eyes go on the back side of the file and then when all folded, it ends up in the correct spot. Just sayin...some of my monsters ended up with two sets of eyes...which would not be unusual for an Alien anyway LOL!


I was not going to make treat holders this year, but shoot, there were soooo many fun files out there that I decided to go for it-but picked VERY easy files to whip up! 34 treaties made in just a couple of hours!  I missed doing my 31 days of Halloween treats this year...maybe next year!
