You have until 11:59 PM MST on Sunday December 5th to participate and get your name in the drawing to win a Cricut cartridge of your choice from ScrapbookPal.com.  Have fun!!

My post for the Blog Hop is a banner I created for a friend who LOVES mice.  We are talking over the moon for mice (not real ones though).  So I thought she would get a kick out of a banner of mice!!  I apologize for the coloring in some of the pictures.  The banner is too long to fit in my photo box so I had to take it in the hall on the carpet.  Instructions are provided below the pictures.  Click on a picture to enlarge.





Add some close ups:




I cut the mouse and layers (p. 37) from Create A Critter Cricut cartridge at 5.5" and assembled the layers.  Then I cut the Santa Hat and the layer (p. 47) from Joys of the Season cartridge at 3".  I used Design Studio to cut the shirt (p. 50) from Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge at 1.25" using the Real Dial Size and then stretched it to fit across the belly of the mouse.  I adhered the hat and the shirt to the mice and then used Thickers Alphabet Stickers to spell out "Merry Chrismouse".  Then just embellished with stickles, Liquid Applique, brads, rhinestones, Colorbox Fluid chalk cat's eye ink pads on the edges, Doodlebug Designs Crushed Velvet Flock (I used Lady Bug and Lily White), and a little pink chalk to create cheekbones.  I used my Crop A Dile II Big Bite to add the large eyelets for the holes for the ribbon so the hats would not tear.  If I had enough matching eyelets, I would have done 2 eyelets in each hat to help the mice lay flat. I may have to go back and add these before I mail it!!  I hope you enjoy.

Be sure to leave a comment IN THIS POST and then continue on to the next designer in the blog hop.  When done, be sure to go back to the Scrapbookpal blog and post a comment.  Be sure to provide an email address so they can contact you if you win!!  Good Luck!!
