That's Krafty Thursday! #9

Merry Christmas Eve!! This is my final Christmas card of the season, card #50!! I did it!! Can you believe it??? I actually made 50 cards, and each one was different. Whew!! I started in July trying to do one card per week and then continued to add more per week as Fall approached. Last year I did 50 as well but there were many duplicates. This year, my challenge was not to duplicate any. Woo-hoo!! Now, not only is today Christmas Eve, but it's also That's Krafty Thursday! I just love how this card turned out too! But then I fall for anything made with Kraft!

This happens to be my sister's Christmas card. My sister is a HUGE mouse fanatic!! If it's got a mouse on it, she LOVES it. So when I saw this stamp over at Art Impressions, I knew I had to get for my sis' Christmas card. The background circle stamp is from Teresa Collins. I found this one on Ebay. I stamped the mouse and background onto some SU Very Vanilla and colored with my Copics. The background was stamped using some Red Colorbox Chalk Ink. I cut the little mouse out with my circle Nesties and cut out the Ho-Ho-Ho stamp with my scalloped circle Nesties then adhered the mouse to the center. This DP is from non other than Collage Press and I matted it with some SU Real Red CS and stitched around the edges. I used my Martha Stewart border punch on the SU Real Red mat and then tied on this cute ribbon. I added all the pieces to the SU Kraft cardbase and there you have CHRISTMAS CARD #50!!!! Tah-dah!!! I hope you've enjoyed all my Christmas cards this year and I hope I've inspired you to make a few too! I wish each and every one of you a wonderful Christmas Eve.
