Christmas Mice

"Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse."  Hmm, guess the author never spent any time with these mice!  These adorable and busy House Mouse critters are so cute, I couldn't decide which one to use, so I did all three.
The challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges this week is felt or fabric, so I used bright red felt to back my images and some burlap ribbon for the background.  I love, love, love how this card turned out, cute and CAS all rolled into one!


Come join us at ABC Christmas and show us your felt or fabric creations - and don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's fab work!

Love that bright red on the kraft. Beautiful details on your CAS card. Burlap looks great. Adorable stamped images colored up beautifully. Thanks for sharing with us and joining the fun at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Nicely done.

There's so much to like about your card! The red really pops against the natural colors of the kraft and the burlap. I especially like how you stitched the image panels to the red felt; it frames the mice so nicely but it doesn't overpower the images either.
Thanks so much for joining in the Christmas Animals challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown! I hope you'll be back to play with us again. :)
