Christmas card featuring Di's Digi Stamps Poinsettia Mouse

Christmas card featuring Di's Digi Stamps Poinsettia Mouse, by Paperesse.

This cute poinsettia bearing mouse – a recent acquisition from Di's Digi Stamps – is ready for Christmas, or should I say Noël as she's a French mouse, don't you know.

I secretly suspect that most of Di's mice are French, as wine/champagne drinking, eating (cheese/other), and flower arranging seem to be their high priorities. They're a perfect fit for my French cards, like this Cheesy Mice on the Moon anniversary card for my husband (one of my all time favorites).

Paper is...?  It was filed under 'Holiday', but I have no idea where it came from. I don't remember buying it and I've never used it before, so I think it must have been a magazine freebie. Embellishments are some new sparkly Echo Park Paper 'Twas The Night Before Christmas enamel dots.

  1. Beautifully made! Thanks for sharing with us at The Merry Christmas Challenge.
    Pause Dream Enjoy

  2. What a cutie - you made him so 'soft' and slightly 'fuzzy'. I wanna just reach out and rub his tummy and I am convinced he would giggle! I so admire your ability to give such texture with your pencils. It has to be so rewarding to be able to zone out coloring and end with such delightful results!

  3. Oh Shani, that little mouse with the Poinsettias is absolutely adorable! Beautiful colours and shading, too. Your background papers compliment each other as well as the colours in your image--so well thought out! Love this design. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
