Holiday Card 43 - Cocoa Mouse

Hello, everyone! I have another holiday card to share! It's Day 6 of the 2018 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers' Blog Hop! The theme is Fall or Winter - plus Coffee, Tea or Cocoa, of course! There is so much inspiration over at the hop - I hope you have a chance to check it out before it ends tomorrow (Friday)!


This adorable clipart image is from Diddybag.  I fussy-cut, popped up on foam tape, and added Star Dust Stickles on his hat for some sparkle.  Behind him is a winter scene I created using Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil with Aleene's Glitter Snow.  I added lots of snowflake sequins, some American Crafts baker's twine, and a single snowman confetti.  The snowy landscape was die-cut with Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders, and I stamped a sentiment from Your Next Stamp. Lastly I die-cut the little scene with a scalloped rectangle and mounted it on a white card base.


My elf Eli wanted to be in the spotlight again!  He's very excited about the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and wanted to show off one of his favourite coffee mugs.  He has two favourite snowman mugs so you know he'll be back to share the other one!  Eli is joining Diana and her elf Hope at DL.ART's 6th Annual Elf Antics Linky!

I would also like to support the following challenges: 2 Crafty Critter Crazies AG w Animals 3/5; ABC Christmas Y for Your Favourite Thing (critters on my cards) UE; Choux Choux Paper Art VOSP2 Home for Christmas (the mouse lives outdoors so he's already home but he lucked out with the cocoa) 1/4; CRAFT Christmas The Last Stretch (one of my final cards for the year - I've been mailing them out and just need a few more) 1/5; Crafting by Designs Holiday AG 1/3; Crafty Gals Corner AG Christmas 1/2; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Use a Sticker UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Use a Stencil UE; Cute Card Thursday AG UE; Cute N Crafty AG 3/5; Dare 2B Artzy Winter 1/3; Die-Cut Divas Winter 3/4; DL.ART December Linky AG UE 1/d; DL.ART Thankful Thursday December Christmas 1/2 wk1; Double Trouble Thing 1 Embossing (embossing paste), Thing 2 Join Thee Amigos Blog Hop Challenge and Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, Thing 3 Let it Snow 1/4; Happy Little Stampers Christmas AG Optional Snow UE; Incy Wincy Create Your Own Background 1/5; Joy Clair December January Mood Board (I was inspired by the winter drink theme) UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 1/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Monday B is for brown and blue 4/5; Three Amigos Blog Hop Christmas/Winter/ Holidays UE; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment 2/5 wk1
