Lovely cards Sam, what a sweet Father Christmas. The colours on the second are so pretty and the Gruffies image is great xx

Sue said...

Hi Sam, poor Santa, kitty and elf, they are all pooped! Sweet card. LOVE the unique colors you chose for your House Mouse card. And I always loved the look on the baby gruffies face on this stamp. The circle Merry Christmas die is nice too. So happy you joined the fun and shared your card with us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

You have made two fabulous cards, Sam!

That Santa is a great image...especially with the diecut of his arrival overheard. I put on my blog that he was so busy giving the cat a cuddle that he drifted off to sleep. Either that or the milk was spiked!!!

The second card looks so pretty. I think it is those pretty coloured paper that first caught my eye...and then I saw the image and fell in love ith it!

I have these papers at home and have not tried them yet. I am going to look through my house Mouse stamps and see what would look good and crack open my 6x6 paper pad!

Thanks for another great month of designing for The Rudolph Days Challenge.

Hi Sam,
Happy Rudolf Days.

Love the super image of the Santa I am sure he needs some rest after all his work.
Super bright papers also.
Your 2nd card is also very adorable with that super image and the unusual colours used.
They all look so excited in that fab car.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
