Merry Christ-mouse!


The challenge at Fantabulous Cricut this week is Christmas in July! My daughter suggested a mouse because they make her think of Christmas...and I've never tried the one on Create a Critter. He's cut normally at 3". He needed clothes so I decided to use the snowman accessories from Snow Friends. Worked pretty well....cut the hat and brim at 1 1/2" Real Dial Size and the vest at 1/2"" I'm not sure what the scarf is because it was just an extra cut that worked perfectly. I decorated him with pink chalk and white gel pen.....some green dimensional paint, and some glitter glaze...topped off with a pearl button. I was going to make a card, but while hunting through "the closet" I found a round piece of chipboard that was just the right size for Mr. Mouse. So I decided an ornament would be cute. Covered the chipboard with DCWV paper...added a red ribbon....and trimmed around the edges with green scalloped ribbon that was just the perfect size. I think this might be my Christmas card for this year......they are flat enough to mail....they won't get thrown away....and think of all the fun creating the Christmas critters!!
"Critters" is the theme at My Sheri Crafts this week so I'm entering this little guy there! And he also works for Polkadoodles Christmas in July theme.
