This is for the "O" alpha challenge. I embossed image in silver e.p. & colored with s.n. markers and copics, which do not like each other as one area bled a bit. So I added clear star to most of his body except his face. S.N. sparkle brush on his hat and dazz. diamonds on the rim & pom-pom. Already had the glimmer stars punched from last year. Used SU two way glue pen around edges and dipped in dazz. diam. Popped up with dimensionals. I tell ya, cardmaking is not for the faint hearted. I was almost finished this card and noticed in the middle part on the fold-it had brushed up against a baby wipe that had red ink on it. Horrors! Happily it is not too noticeable.

Your card is fabulous! Love your mouse image as the ornament seems too big for him to move! So adorable! You are so right in saying card stamping is not for the faint hearted as we can all relate! But I cannot see any errors on your cute card! Well done!

Oh giggle Shirl, this card is so stinkin cute my friend that no one will ever even see the edge of your cardbase to notice any red smudge at all. This little mouse is so cute and the title you chose is so perfect. Ha! I really, really love the holly corners you added and how that ties in with the holly on the ornament. How in the world do you get such a perfectly straight edge with your Zig 2-way glue pen when going around the edge of the image panel to add the glitter? I have never been able to do that, and this looks incredible. I love all the sparkle and shine this card has and I love the red and green color scheme (a lot!). This is one elegant and fun Christmas card my friend! ~Karen.

I just Love whimsy and flourishes, and you have combined them both with these Gorgeous corners to your main panel! This little mouse is literally having a 'ball'! Such a fun card....love the added trio of stars~

Ok, Shirl, I looked all over your card for red ink and I canâ€™t see it. Your card is so lovely and cheerful!
Just because it was HANDMADE does not mean it was CHEAP, because why send a store-bought card that cost $4.95 when you can make it yourself for $89 worth of supplies?
