Three Clover's Thursday Challenge #47





Welcome to 3 Clover's Thursday Challenge...can you guess what the challenge is from my card?

This week's challenge is to make a Winter themed card. Now most of you have had enough of the snow, so I thought maybe you could visualize being snowed in at a  nice cozy, warm ski lodge with some dear friends, drinking a nice cup of hot cocoa. What do ya think?

This darling House Mouse image is HUGE...all colored and cropped it is 4 x 5, so it makes a big card! That is a little of a challenge for me, but I so love this stamp...I had to give it a whirl! I have to say, when you stamp a detailed stamp like this...Memento Black is the only way to go...it stamped so nicely and easily! There was a lot of coloring here...but it was a  pretty fast type coloring for me!

I do have to tell you though...I was wondering if these little meeces had more in their cups than just cocoa...they look pretty relaxed to me....LOL!

The message inside...Happy Winter!

I hope you will hop over to 3 Clovers and see what the rest of the Clover girls have stamped up for you today...and maybe grab a cup of cocoa and whip up a card to join us!

Super Cute! I smiled when I saw this one as those mice are just adorable. The 2nd one from the left most certainly had more then cocoa in it's cup! Great coloring and a really sweet card.

This is a positively wonderful card. I have this one circled in my catalog to order, and now, having seen it done, it will definitely be ordered. You did a beautiful job with this huge stamp. Maybe they are drinking Irish coffee????

ROTFL! I sooo agree, they do look awfully laid back! I've always loved this stamp, but have been a little intimidated by it. You really did an awesome job on this one, it realy makes you feel all warm and cozy looking at it! Great card! hugz, Mary
