Gift Giving

This week at Stampendous® , we're showcasing our adorable House-Mouse® Designs!  My card today is the Stampendous® House-Mouse® Designs stamp named Gift Giving.   It's a favorite of mine because I always enjoyed being the Santa for my kids when they were growing up.  It did my heart good to watch them open their gifts and know they are so pleased and thankful for what they received.

  1. I just love this card. The little mouse is so sweet--it reminds me of going to a Christmas party--my great uncle's work party (since his kids were too old, I got to go!!). It's funny that a mouse stamp brought back that memory. Thanks..

    1. Funny how that happens! Makes me smile to know it!

  2. Sweet card! Love the layering and coloring of this delightful House Mouse image!

  3. awww, what a lucky little mouse and cute, too! your card is sweet!

  4. Wow, Lea! WHAT AMAZING COLORING! I love that Santa's sack is teal rather than red! Great design idea to balance all those wrapped presents, and make the red pop out! Soooo darling!
