Sparkles Christmas: Anything But a Card

Hi, everyone! It's the first of the month... which means it's time for a new Sparkles Christmas challenge.

This month's challenge theme was selected by Debs. Debs is asking for anything but a card. Wrapping Paper. Gift Tags. Gift Bags. Ornaments. House Decoration. Anything Christmas-y that's not a card will do.  Easy, peasy!

For my project, I decided to make a set of three little mouse ornaments for a friend. I used some Little Mouse Cocoa and Snow images from Dollar Graphics Depot. I just started working with digi stamps a few weeks ago. So, I took this opportunity to practice downloading, sizing, and positioning.

Stampin' Up! whisper white and expresso; stash blue
Dollar Graphics Depot Little Mouse Cocoa and Snow pre-colored images
edges enhanced with clear heat embossing, using Versamark pen and clear SU powder
Celebrate it jute ribbon; SU linen thread
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Ranger multi medium matte

Our fearless leader Caz is sponsoring this month's prize. She is offering up the goodies shown below to one lucky crafter.  :)

With so many possibilities, we can't wait to see what you create! See you over at Sparkles Christmas.  :)
