I Mice You at the Holidays


It’s almost Turkey Day. Definitely my second favorite holiday of the year! Anything that involves gobs of carbs, sweets and turkey is my kind of holiday. šŸ˜šŸ—šŸ˜€

I don’t send Thanksgiving greetings to adults but, I do send them to my little nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews. Sending cards is just a fun, inexpensive and really personal way to keep in touch with my cutest relatives. And the kids really get excited to receive mail. I have even inspired my niece Brianna, who actually makes handmade cards and mail them to me as well now.

I had a lot of fun coloring these cute little mice from MFT Stamps Harvest Mouse stamp set.

I love the idea of these busy little mice getting ready for a Thanksgiving feast! Just imagine how cute their tiny little turkey would be. And teeny tiny pumpkin pies!

For this little mouse I used a cool technique on his sweater to create a wool look. Just dab some Copic Colorless Blender solution on a terry cloth rag and blot your Copic coloring to achieve this look.

The next two are really similar as many of my cards sometimes are. When I am making multiples of a card to send to different nieces/nephews it is sometimes easier to just make two of the same card. I make between 9 – 12 cards depending on the holiday.

I am looking forward to the holiday season and to cooler weather. It was 86 in our area of Florida today. That is just too hot for fall!

Happy Stamping,
