Hi Everyone! I hope you had a very Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year! At Sparkle N Sprinkle we have these cute and fun stamp sets to start the New Year with! I chose the cute mouse set called The Collector, for my card. He looks very playful and mischievous. I saw a stray cat out our window one day and there was a rat in the yard about half her size. They were playing with each other, chasing and having fun it looked like! The rat never ran away nor the cat! Guess they were about the same size so they may as well play LOL! I have never seen that before. Anyway, this little mousy is gathering up food for a feast! I ran the brown card stock through a tree trunk embossing folder, swiped Versa Mark ink over the raised areas and added Glisten embossing powder EP135 to it for some sparkle. Glisten embossing powder was used around the circle and edges of the card also. The tree limbs are from an svg cut file and I fussy cut the red berries.

Here is the inside of the card. I used Gypsy Red velvet glitter GM2005 on the berry and the leaves are another svg cut file. Twinkling Clouds sparkle n soft SS107 was used on the mouse's stomach, but it is hard to see. 

On Jan 3rd,  one Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the comments left on the designers' blogs listed below.  The Grand Prize Winner will receive
