A Holiday Filled with Sweetness

Hello, everyone!  Today I'm sharing a holiday card for Rudolph Day!  You were probably expecting to see a kitty card, weren't you?   For a change, this card has some adorable mice!

This image is Peppermint Mice from Jan's Digi Stamps.  Sadly Jan's Digi Stamps is closing shop in April 2024, so now's the time to head over and get some cute images before it's too late.  For my card, I used the precoloured image; I couldn't colour this any cuter than it already is!  I used a background digital from The Paper Shelter's Gingerbread House set and I added a die-cut snowy landscape (it's the left-over from die-cutting Lawn Fawn's Stitched Landscape).  The mice have been fussy-cut and popped up on foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from Your Next Stamp and adhered a bow that I fussy-cut from the background at the bottom right.

I was inspired by the following 10 challenges:

Here is a fun cat cartoon for you... enjoy!

Thank you for being here!  Wishing you a joyful day!

The background, the mice & the snowy landscape all came together perfectly.
Well done Kitty for doing a great looking card.
Yes, very surprised that there is not a cat on this card but I'm pretty sure that we will see some real soon...TFS
