One for you and one for me!

It is time for my Christmas Card Challenge #8.  Our talented hostess wants us to make a card using red berries.  Okay Valery this card is for you!!  Valery has a thing for red berries and I have a thing for little mice.  They go together right - especially when you throw in a little bird.   Ta Da ....

I do love Chickadees!

I have another little Wee Forest Folk from my collection to show you -- I have had her for well over twenty five years.
I know it is hard to tell from the picture but this little sculpture is an inch and a half high around 4 centimeters high.  And it is one and three quarters inch or about four and half centimeters wide.

I do hope everyone is well.  Sending out good wishes to Maureen  
who has been taking care of her Mother and now taking care of her daughter who had to have ankle surgery.

I hope you have enjoyed my post.   I think I like this card!!!
Thanks for visiting!!
Sandy

As you know, I share your love of little folk, and house mouse was and is one of my all time faves, so I just LOVE this wonderful card! Hugs, Valerie

Christine Harrop said...

I see what youmean now that I can see your card. We must be able to tune in to each other's vision because this is the second time we have made almost the same card. So funny! But I do love that gorgeous house mouse image (+ chickadee) and your papers. Hugs Christine xx

Lovely card and you've certainly hit the brief. Can't believe how small your mouse ornament is, good job you said!!
Hope all is well xx

I love the House Mouse stamps, I really do. I'm not big on the real things though... don't like them much but the stamps are super cute.
This is a great card Sandy. I like the embossing and how you've used an oval for the image - perfect shape for it.
Yep, it's a great image and a fab card.
Keep well my friend!

Redanne said...

Ahh, that image on your Christmas card is just darling Sandy! And your little mouse ornament is so, so wonderful, hard to believe there is so much detail in such a teeny tiny piece - no wonder you love them!

As far as mu craft room goes, things that I cannot put away (a lot at the moment) go into a pile, when that pile falls over, or I decide to tidy up, then I get rid of some older stuff and put the new stuff away - probably to be forgotten about..... sigh. Hope all is well with you! Hugs, Anne xxx

I love your card and your commentary! You are so much fun! It is so hard to believe those little figures are so teeny! Some day I have to find a store that carries them to see them IRL!

MaryH said...

Simply a gorgeous image, with delightful critters, and your coloring is perfection. Love the oval treatment, and this looks great with the rich red embossing. Love the black mats and the green dp. Cute little collectible too. These would be my kind of mice! Not the real kind! TFS & Hugs (I've got to photo my CCC & get a post done..late again). TFS

I love your card Sandy, and it's coloured beautifully, the berries look good enough to eat. I've a few HM stamps and haven't used them for ages, they are so sweet. Love the little Forest Folk, it's hard to imagine so much detail in such a tiny object.
Hope you've had a great weekend.
