Naughty But Mice

Happy Monday before Thanksgiving! Who's ready for Turkey Day dinner? I am!!  I'm the host of the Bitten By The Bug2 challenge this week and I chose the mouse from the Meow cartridge, or a mouse cut from any cartridge. I've been seeing lots of mice themed Christmas decorations lately, so I decided to make one for myself. I started with a wintery blue scrapbook paper with foil embossed ornaments. I cut the mice at 6" and swirl embossed the pale blue snowflake papers (each mouse is cut from a different patterned paper) and the pink cardstock ears. I created a "lady and gentleman" mouse with accessories. Mr. Mouse got a top hat, bowtie, eyebrow, and mitten. Mrs. Mouse got a matching scarf and hair bow, eyelashes, blush, and mitten. I cut banners out of watermelon cardstock. I attached a mouse to each end of the background paper with foam dots, and spelled out "Naughty but Mice" with Thickers, letter stickers, and glittered chipboard letters. I punched several snowflakes from the watermelon cardstock and the pale blue snowflake patterned papers and attached them with foam dots with a sparkly sticker in the center. I like the non-traditional Christmas colors in this project and all the dimension and texture. Check out the other designers' creations at BBTB2 and see all the lovely designs! 


Miles of Smiles,
