Pixie's Snippets Playground Weeks 313 and 314 - Prize D

Today's prize is two items for stamping - one image and one set of sentiments. As I'm in a massive rush here I've copied and pasted a previous Christmas card I made using the same image ages ago (almost four years in fact!):
I used:
- 6" x 6" white scalloped edge card blank
- House Mouse 'Mistletoe Moment' stamped using SU's 'Smoky Slate' and coloured with Polychromos Pencils and Sansodor blending solution. The colours are much stronger IRL - dratted camera again! I added a couple of little self adhesive pearls to the mistletoe
- all papers are from LOTV's 'Woodland Wishes' Christmas paper pad, the green pieces are snippets

- the sentiment is an Elzybells one (no longer trading sadly), stamped using SU's 'Rich Razzleberry' then die cut using a Spellbinders banner die. I just did the green backing layer by using the die as a guide and drawing round the outside before hand cutting it - and again, used snippets to back/frame the small panels

- white Josy Rose nail heads

Such a shame that the sentiment is no longer available as it suits the image so well  - although of course you could always generate one using your PC/printer.

However, here is today's prize:
I managed to find exactly the same little House Mouse image, although it's now cling mounted rather than wood mounted like my original one is. And it's now called 'Mistletoe Mice' rather than 'Mistletoe Moment'.

And, instead of the 'Happy Kiss-mas' sentiment which is no longer available, I'm including an Inkylicious stamp set with four sentiments in called ''Seasons Greetings'. I've offered an almost identical stamp set previously - although Inkylicious have since slightly reduced the size of the stamps as well as increasing the sentiments from three to four. The extra one is 'Let it Snow' - such a useful one as well. More of the same set of sentiments will appear (singly as add-ons to make up a prize) as the coming week goes by - they're a real 'go to' item in my Christmas crafting goodies!

I was trying to keep these 'combined bundles' but have decided that if a job's worth doing then it's doing well so I'm OK with splitting prizes. The House Mouse image is just adorable and will appeal to those of you who I just know from your beautiful cards love anything that is House Mouse! :)

At the end of all of the celebrations I'll do a massive draw session for all the prizes using the one Mr Linky - which is on the main snippets post HERE - so you do need to have entered one snippets make over on that post during this fortnight to be in with a chance :) Maximum of one entry please - to keep things fair for those who may not have time to craft - Mr Linky closes at 11am on Saturday 6th January.

Just leave a comment on this post if you would like the chance to win today's prize.

Super card, Di, what an adorable image! I love the little House Mouse images, but haven't managed to add any to my stamp collection yet. I'm a Yes Please for Prize D. xx

Love this card. Wish the sentiment was still available but as you say we can put it in Word and print it out.

Oh, I do love House Mouse and your card shows the stamp off beautifully. I am certainly a 'yes please' for Prize D. x

Carol L said...

Yes please to the sentiments if you choose to split them from the House Mouse. The House Mouse image is adorable, but I have a whole tub of House Mouse images that I seldom use now, so adding to it would be senseless :) Thank you so much!

Your draws certainly are popular Miss and you're right about house mouse...
Ill say yes please to house mouse but no thanks to sentiment stamps. Would only use one of four so not much point.
No snow down under, warm and muggy. Sending hugs and prayers for every blrssing for you dear Miss, Len, and Parsnip.
Love Shaz in Oz.x

Those House Mouse designs have been a favorite of mine for many years!
I used to buy note cards, notepads, sticky notes, etc. with their images
(many moons ago & don't know where on earth I bought them!). Your card is
just darling and a cute design to boot! Yes, please, I'd love to win this
fun prize today.
