Not Even a Mouse


Another little Christmas card. At my current rate of productivity, I may be ready for next Christmas, but it isn't looking too good for having enough made up for this Christmas. Of course, I thought the same thing about this time last year, and I managed to pull it off, so there may still be hope. I was reading through the blogs I follow and ran across a sketch that I thought I'd use. As you can see, the sketch is fairly simple, so easy-peasy, right? HA! Nothing I do is ever quick and easy. Took me almost 2 hours to find/decide on what paper to use. Is that rediculous or what? I kept trying to use Christmas paper, but I'm not overly happy with the Christmas pads I currently have. As it turned out, the paper I did finally decide on is about 18 years old. Yep, 18 years! I know it is that old because my daughter and I both stocked up on that make paper right after my oldest grandson (her son) was born. (By the way, that little baby just started college today, 8/23!)

Sorry, I'm rambling a bit today. The DP is by Keeping Memories Alive, Inc. The little image is by Meljens. I know the poem says not a creature was stirring; not even a mouse, but I guess no one ever read that poem to this little fellow. He seems to be having a grand time swinging on the ornaments whilst everyone else snoozes. I coloured my little Ornament Mouse with Copic markers on Cryogen white card. Here is a view of the sketch I used:

So there you have it. One card down and several dozen to go. Yes, I will be making more than one of the same design, so now that this first one has been made, the others will be easier.
