My card today was made using the pre-colored Fred She Said newly released Christmas Poinsettia Lantern. Isn’t this just the prettiest image! I used this week’s sketch from Midnight Madness challenge blog. It was just perfect for my lantern.

I added some yellow stickles to the centers of the poinsettias and the candle flame. I also added some red Bling on the ribbon and right hand corners.

The papers are all from Close to my Heart and the Hand Stitching was done with Red Embroidery Floss.
My special words for the phrase are “a Very”.

Now hope on over to Val’s Blog and see the gorgeous artwork from her.

House Mouse - Midnight Madness Challenge

I wanted to play along with the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge from last week with a House Mouse Stamp that I have had for at least 10 years and have never used it. So, here it is.
I'm also submitting this for the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. I'd LOVE to win some new HM Stamps.

I normally do fancy hand stitching around the card, but I'm getting this card in at the very lasy minute so I did a small amount of hand stitching on it with brown embroidery floss.
