Muse Challenge #95 - with a Caroline K.I.S.S. card

Hope you don't mind a second post today.  With Thanksgiving on Thursday, I thought I'd better get a few challenges done before the cooking begins!!  You see I have my priorities straight =]

Caroline from K.I.S.S is just fantastic, I was easily inspired by her gorgeous card:

Love that Wplus9 set!
 
I purchased a sheet of October Afternoon D.P. and the set of stamps that matched it.  For Muse #95, here is my take, Caroline, with a cute little fussy-cut Chris-mouse jingle bell:
 
The very last morsel of Recollections embossed gold dotted kraft CS =[ 
Reverse Confetti dies; SSS Joy stamp;
and a lovely snip of ribbon - a gift with my last Ellen Huston order -
the pin is just to keep it from being unruly during its photo session!
 

I've begun using removable glue dots to adhere tags to cards... might as well give a little gift to use later, right?

Oh, a cute little mouse surrounded by gorgeous polka dots - your card is just delightful.
I really love your idea of using removable glue dots too.
Thanks so much for your lovely comments. I'm thrilled you found the time to play along at Muse this week.

Is there really joy if there's a mouse in the house? I guess so if he's as cute as this one. ;-) Great card, Michele.

He is so cute! I, too, am besotted by your gold spotted kraft, and it works a treat with your Chris-mouse. Your cards ALWAYS make me smile! Fun is always intermingled with creativity. So clever!
