Anyone for Skating?

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge was new last Monday and I wanted to get it done but it took me all week to find some time to work on it. A friend asked me to make her a couple of birthday cards so that went to the top of the crafting list but when I coloured the images I sneaked in a cute little mousie and I found a bit of time this morning to put my card together.


I don't know the company this little skating mouse is from as I received it from a friend but with the berries in his hat it qualified for the Berries challenge at Merry Monday.


Before Christmas I bought a skate die and it's the first I have used it, I have a holly punch from EK and I punched the holly and berries and attached them with the skates.


I used the same embossing folder for the inside as I did the front.

I would like to enter this in:


Thanks for checking today to see I'm still keeping up my Holiday card challenges.

That mouse is named Henry and he's from Whiff of Joy, but I don't know the name of the stamp, maybe Henry Ice Skating? I think that company is no longer in business unfortunately but I have a few of their stamps that I either won or received as gifts. I don't have this particular one - it's really sweet! I love your gorgeous embossing folder and cute little die-cut skates! Adorable card, Barb!

Barb, your card is beautiful outside as well as inside. Great idea for embossing on the inside. Your mouse is too cute, especially with the holly around his hat.

Wow, Barb! This is an adorable little skater and I love how you've framed him and all the texture! The die cut skates are a fun embellishment! Thanks for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!
