Christmas is coming... Shops are putting on the festive dress, filling their shelves with Christmas goodies.
A bit "late" this year, maybe because it was warm until last week and Christmas seemed far away? Or maybe because that mid-October was too early in any case...
Being a crafter and making Christmas cards for most of the year, I'm always happy when I see something festive around: I love to see new trends, to have some inspiration and to be completely in the right mood for holiday creations.
But, the other "me" refuses to buy ornaments and home decorations so early. The most horrible thing is that, when it's almost Christmas, most big shops have already taken away Christmas items.
Well, let's go back to cards.
Today I'm happy to show a card I've just finished with a lovely stamp from Meljen's Designs called Ice Skating Mouse:
This picture is a bit dark, I'm sorry. The Easel card is white and the panel below is a light blue-green glittered paper.
I colored the mouse with Copics and glitter and added rhinestones, glittered snowflakes and dots of pink paint. Isn't she cute?
