Christmas Dreams

Christmas Dreams - This sweet little mouse reminds me of Christmas Eve at my house growing up. It was our tradition to open the presents on Christmas Eve after returning home for the Christmas Eve children's program at our church. After opening our presents we played and played with our new gifts. We were allowed to stay up very late, as we could sleep in on Christmas morning.
I can image this little mouse sleeping in all the gift wrap at our house.
My image is Digi Doodles Cecil Wrapped Up. I colored Cecil (would you believe that I have a brother named Cecil?) with Copics. I added some Stickles to the ruffle on the pillow. The tree branches in the upper right hand corner were hand drawn by me. I was nervous about doing this, but I like the result!

My holly vine is CL. The flower is The Girls' Paperie, Tinsel and Twig.
My paper is Cloud 9 - Harvest Holiday. Everything is inked with Forest Moss distress ink.

I finished off the card using a MS punch, 3 red gemstones and some red baker's twine.

This card is my Design Team project for Crafts 4 Eternity's Midnight Magic challenge. We are sponsored by Pink Gems. I hope that you will join us for this challenge. The midnight magic does not have to be Christmas related, but I would love to hear about your Christmas Eve  magic!
