Merry Monday

This week's Merry Monday challenge is to write this post with an animal in the way.....  oh wait, that's just me that is doing that.  The challenge is to make a Christmas card with an animal on it.
I just had to pull this cutie out of the closet and use him. I knew I wanted to pair him with this striped paper but it took me awhile to figure out what else to do with this card.  I colored the Christmas ornament with a glitter pen which lightened up the red in the photograph, but it matches much better in real life.
Except for the incredibly crooked Merry Christmas I like how I decorated the inside.  The crooked greeting came about because the words slipped on the wood mount.  How does that happen when all it does is sit in a drawer most of the year?  Very curious...
The Fine Print: Mouse stamp by Elyzbells, border punch by Martha, holly vine by Memory Box, striped paper by DCWV, inside greetings by AMuse Artstamps.  What do you mean you expected a Valentine's Day themed post on Valentines??!!!  Well, stay tuned I do have one by the photo for it is someplace I'm not right now (which will be bed when this goes live).

So sweet and the sentiment is 'quirky' not 'crooked' xx

Well, I'm commenting with an animal in the way? I love the QUIRKY sentiment (repeat: I MEANT TO DO THAT) and also, I've had that slippage you mention. No idea why, but I can give you some words to say when it happens ;)

I'm hangin' in there just like the cute mouse on your card! Adorable image, great coloring. And your idea to get a dog sled intrigued me....after I stopped laughing hysterically! It's not such a bad idea after all :) 2-4 more inches of the white stuff heading our way yet again tonight! AWRGH!!

Cute little mouse. The inside looks great too.

I love how the face is reflecting in the ornament. The glitter makes it sparkle just right. The way you did the chevron pattern inside with your paper is great.

Awwwww...love this little mouse! Really cute card! :0) (I like mice much better on cards than I do in my house, and we had one about a month ago visiting...probably trying to get out of the cold!)
