House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #132

50 Days Till Christmas

For this challenge, you can show off anything you might do to get ready for Christmas! For me, I am always a late lizzie in wrapping presents, I always mean to wrap them early, but it always seems I am wrapping a few days before Christmas.

I used several House Mouse stamps on this card, including just using a part of Mice Elves. (a good way to stretch your stamps too)

The surprise is when you pull the pretty brad...

This is  fun slider card I made with my Silhouette-cut file designed by Lori Whitlock. Love it!!!  It opens like this---when you push either side in, they both retract at the same time.

I used some pretty Echo Park papers and a Christmas light cut  file and a pretty label as well.

Our sponsors for this challenge are: 

and a $10 certificate from

I hope will join in our challenge this time! Thanks for popping by!

Well at first I thought no wonder this little mouse looks so happy - he is on the front of a beautiful card and then what to my wondering eyes should appear but a slider card all full of cheer!!! Love those ornaments above the mouse - Really one happy card Sue!!!

Loving those bright fun papers you used in traditional Christmas, red, white and green. Little mice are busy, so darn cute. I leave the baking til last because I want the cookies to be fresh...then get stressed about finishing....great card.
