Christmas Mouse Card

It's a busy time of year!  So here's a CAS card.

Pardon the pun, since I made a mouse card, but this all came about because if you give a mouse a cookie..... (a story about how one thing leads to another)

I've come across a new blog challenge site, The 12 Months of Christmas Link Up, that will officially start in January.  Lisa had been doing this as part of her blog but decided to start a separate blog just for the challenges.  Goal is to make a minimum of two Christmas cards a month.  This is a Christmas card only challenge.  Optional each month will be a theme with a sponsor prize. If you link up 2 cards during the month, you get a free digital paper as a thank you gift.  The paper doesn't have to be used in future link ups.  The link to the new site is HERE 

In the meantime, Monica and Lisa are offering blog candy which I've posted in my candy jar on the sidebar and a free digital paper for following their easy 4 steps to acquire it.

And then I found one of their sponsors, Imagine That, who offers free images each month.  Kristi also has two challenges each month, one with the required Imagine That digital stamp of the month, and one with any of her images.  I quickly bought 3 items in the store because I fell in love with them which allows me to enter her second challenge.

So back to my CAS card.  I kept it clean and simple by using Kristi's already colored image from her Mouse Skate digital set.  I paired it with the sentiment before printing it out.  I used two coordinating colors of Stampin' Up paper and a matching ribbon ( Gumball Green and Cherry Cobbler).  Then I added 3 red gem stickers and embellished the fur on the image with my Gelly Roll clear star pen. Easy peasy.

Challenges I'm Entering:
