House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge -My Favorite Things


My Favorite Things

I chose the theme for this challenge!  Let me tell you...I have more than a few favorite things during the of them is baking cookies and another is decorating trees (yes, I have 4 or 5 tree's to put up each year!) Ohhh...I must make a gazillion cookies to give away.

See...I am not kidding ( I have lots of cookie recipes HERE if you are looking for holiday recipes)

This is such an easy can use any idea from the song lyrics below or use an image that shows off any favorite of yours!

My card today is made with a Silhouette stair step cut file...another favorite...and of course some pretty bright and festive paper from Doodlebug. Really... another favorite too LOL-
don't get me started on favorites!

My Favorite Things!
You can read the song's lyrics below to use them for your inspiration
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad


What a HAPPY SONG to inspire you to break out your House-Mouse Stamps!!! Hope you can join us.

OMG...I've come to the conclusion that you never sleep!!!! The cookies and table are awesome. And, of course, your step card is adorable. I use to be in a cookie swap. Being in the middle of packing, I will have to forgo all the Christmas decor and cookie baking. But, I feel like I'm sharing in
