Good morning! Smiley from If y’all are like me, you are running around getting last-minute holiday stuff together and making sure everything is just so!  I’ve got the handmade gifts done, all the presents wrapped and the menu is planned.  Now I only have to finish Smiley from  My family will be here Christmas Eve for dinner and then on Christmas Day everyone is free to go visit other family members.

I hate to admit this one.  Even though I’ve been making Christmas cards for weeks, I haven’t gotten one mailed out.  I’m ashamed of myself and maybe, just maybe, I can get Mallory to help in the next day or so and get them out in the post.

I did find some “me” time last night, and got into the studio to stamp a bit.  I looked through all my Christmas stamps, and decided that I just couldn’t make one more.  I settled on something fun and cute instead.

Before I get into the deets on the card though, I should remind you that today is Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker.  It’s been a year now since we started the Treasure Hunt and Mr. Rubbernecker has decided that next Tuesday will be the last one.  So all you Treasure Hunters, you have today and next Tuesday to hunt for that free stamp.  Don’t worry, I do believe that there are things in the works to replace the Treasure Hunt!  You can find out more info and the Designers who are participating in today’s Treasure Hunt on the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog.

Get this . . . . how cute are these little cupcake mice?  I’ve had this image for some time (I picked it up in the booth while working a show one weekend) and finally decided that it needed to see some ink.  Plus I thought I would start working on my birthday card stash.

SO Cupcake Mice

The image was colored with Copic Markers and the little chips in the cupcake (because it is chocolate chip) were highlighted with Glossy Accents.  To add just a bit of sparkle to the frosting a small bead of Crystal Stickles were added.
