HM Recipe Challenge




Here is my HM Recipe. One Candy Cane Dreams HM stamp, colored as desired. One stocking of felt, stuffed with a sleepy little mouse who already ate part of his candy cane. Mount mouse on dimensionals. Add two button brads to the stocking and two scallops cut with SU's scallop punch to the bottom edge of the card. Stamp one Merry Christmas sentiment from Flourishes "Rejoice" and mount over strip of Dashing DP from SU, and add one piece of ribbon, attached with a brass brad. Sprinkle with snowflakes in Brilliance "Cosmic Copper" using complimentary snowflake stamp from Alota Rubber Stamps. Mount all ingredients on green CS (Wild Wasabi in this case.) Photograph for HM Challenge and then enjoy! (Hmmm, I'm craving peppermint.....and a nap.) :) Thanks for looking at my entry. Be sure to head over the the HM Challenge blog and check out the other entries. They're wonderful and full of talent.

Okay...allow me to catch my breath from the huge "Awwwwwww" I uttered when I saw this precious card. I do not know where to start. I love ALL of it!!! The felt stocking is such a wonderful touch, and the little mousie looks snug as a bug in a rug:o) I also love the colors you selected and your wounderful layout!!! Beautifully sweet in every way:o)

Hugs!
