Whimsy Sneak Peek - Cozy Cap Mouse

Happy Monday!

Did you have a good weekend? We finally started our holiday shopping and I organized all of my Christmas cards, just need to fill them out and mail them now. Feeling a little better about my holiday to do list. And we also put up our tree and decorated the house a bit. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, all we need now is the snow!


Today is Sneak Peek Day at Whimsy Stamps. We have a new rubber stamp releasing on Wednesday this week with 9 new stamps and sets! The artists have created some super cute winter and love themed images and sentiment sets. Stay tuned the next few days for all the peeks and then our release blog hop at Noon EST on the 8th!

This little sweetheart is Cozy Cap Mouse illustrated by Melissa of Meljen's Designs. I love his darling face and that long cute cap! I've colored him with Copics and than framed the image with oval Nesties. I've used some BG Jovial papers and then stitched the edges on the sewing machine. I've embellished with flowers and leaves, new to me antique brads from SU!, and some striped ribbon also from SU!.  The sentiment is from the Winter Letters Seals available now at Whimsy.

This card fits the challenges at:
Christmas Card - CHRISTMAS, optional monochromatic
Crafty Pad - anything goes
One Stitch At A Time - old stash, new stash
2 Sisters  - sparkly Christmas
Catch The Bug - anything goes
Secret Crafter - Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Some of the other Whimsy DT girls will have sneak peeks today and tomorrow too. Stop by and say hello to them and then join us on Wednesday for the release event! Have a great Monday!
