CAS[E] this Sketch #398

OH, Oh, oh!  you are going to LOve our Sketch this week... do I say that all the time?  Check it out...


See!  didn't I tell you??

Are you ready for my next Colorado Craft installment?  I can't wait to share it!


It's so hard to fit these slimline cards into a photo ... here's a triple 
treat of closeups for you!







Think that steel grey isn't for Christmas?  Maybe Fa la la tickles your fancy more than HO HO HO?  you just might like this version more...


More of that gorgeous Alexandra Renke paper from a few Christmases ago - my little guys have had such a good time decorating!

Now let's go see where the inspiration for Sketch #398 comes from, shall we?  OH!  You can make more than one card this week, too!  wink, wink!  we won't be mad! lol

OMG OMG OMG, NO YOU DIDN'T....BUT YOU DID AND, OH SO, FABULOUSLY! The previous sentence is me squealing with delight. I am beyond impressed with your cleverness. Using your favorite grey and these fantastic images in the slimline format is so fun and festive.

I am always going to love grey and I am loving these cards. Super adorable, great interpretation of the sketch and super fun too x.

Cat Craig said...

I am so loving both of these beauties!

Love the variety of alphas you used for the HO HO HO! And the mice are just darling! Awesome background paper and your second card too!

BOTH of these are fabulous Michele, aren't those mice the sweetest!!

Marcia Hill said...

Yep, love the sketch, but I LOVE your cards even more!! You've used those darling mice to perfection in both cards Michele and I'm loving the gray, red, & white color theme on both too! Cute, CUTE cards my friend!! Hugs. :0)

Lisa Elton said...

Oh, oh, oh I love those meeses to pieces! These are both extra cute. All of the colors you chose look fabulous!

Bonnie said...

You clever girl to use these mice among the ho ho ho and fa la la! Love the papers on the second and the pops of red on the first! They both made me smile!

Jeanne said...

Duo of delight, Michele. LOVE the non traditional gray that absolutely works. You should say Ha, ha, HA! to any naysayers! Excellent work, my friend.

Cindy H. said...

Both of these cards are AWESOME! Love those sweet meese :) and the beautiful papers and of course your coloring is so lovely, too!

Kara Lynne said...

Oh, oh, oh, Wow! I love both of your slimlines, Michele! I've been restraining myself from buying those CCC stamps but you just broke through The Resistance! FABULOUS!

HilaryJane said...

you have definitely got me hooked on the delights of grey. I love these 2 those mice are just great, they add such wonderful detail xx

Barb Ghig said...

Well, I LOVE them both, Michele! I love how you used 3 different fonts on the first card and your patterned paper on the 2nd card is just perfect! By the way, I think gray is lovely on a Christmas card...you've proven that today, for sure! xx

JulieP said...

Dang woman! You are on a ROLL!!! These are awesome but that grey one? Superb. I am loving how you can just nestle a little mouse in just the right places. Dangit...I'm gonna need me some vermin. LOL!

TK said...

Fab, Fab, FAB! Both are terrifically fun and fabulous!

Two beautiful Slimline Christmas cards, Michele. I love your color combo and Bold die cut Ho, Ho, Ho with a bit of red and cute little mice. A totally different Bold die cut FaLaLaLa Slimline card for your 2nd card. I loved all your busy little critters and the wonderful Christmas designer paper. TFS Love and Hugs...Nancy

How cute are those little mice pals?
Both fab cards, but I LOVE the steel grey. Brilliant use of the different fonts.
That idea is filed away ;-)

Papercraft Boutique said...

OMG, both cards are too cute, Michele! The little mice are unexpected and fun decorations of the bold HO HO HO. Love the wonderful details - paint on "H" and the dry embossing in the background.
Great job of mixing the pattern papers for the second card. The AR's paper is so pretty!

Anita in France said...

Eeeeek ... almost unbearably brilliant, Michele ... both of them ... how adorable (and beautifully coloured/detailed) are those sweet little critters adorning the sentiment on both cards! Awesome ... or should I saw pawsome?! Hugs, Anita :)

Ros Crawford said...

Oh Michele I'm enthralled with your Colorado craft cards... Those little images are wonderful but the way you used them, your designs... they are even more special!

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

LOVE those mice! I have a weak spot for rodents, LOL! You did a great job photographing those slimline cards - not easy! I try to stay away from them anyhow....

Bobby said...

Such wonderful placement of those darling little critters, Michele. Both cards are magnificent!

Rachelle Oltean said...

OMGoodness! I don't think I can pick favorite!!!! Equally cute! I do love that AR pattern paper though...it's a keeper! Take care!
Hugs - Red : )

Stephanie Lanzalotto said...

Well now, these are just TOO much. And of course, now I have to have the mice - all of them, and they are mostly out of stock. Your cards are killer fabulous, as always. I would still love to have a brain exchange - just for a day.

Kim S said...

Those little mice are amazing by themselves - but your use of them with the Christmas words is even more fabulous!!
