Today is Freshly Made Sketches day and I have some fun for you! They sweet and oh so talented Cindy Hall is our hostess and she has created an instant classic for us to use this week!
A little while ago, I was lucky enough to have a layover in Dallas-Ft. Worth and got to spend a whole day with the lovely Bev Gerard. She is even nicer in person that she is over at Splitcoaststampers (almost impossible to believe!!). She and her dear husband came over to whisk me away from a long boring layover hotel and straight into her amazing stamp room. I sat there in awe and we even did a little bit of stamping. One of the things I brought home was this stamped image from Merry Mice and I knew I wanted to color him for The 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I posted a closeup of him yesterday on Instagram and you can see the sparkle in his little sweater and on the ornament! I used my Zig Clean Color pens for coloring and then added some Wink of Stella to add some shimmer. The image was stamped on Fabriano Watercolor Paper which happens to be a nice color match for Shimmery White card stock from SU. So that is what I used as a base. The sparkle from the Stella is also a nice complement to the shimmer from the base. I added a Cherry Cobbler layer and a Bermuda Bay embossed layer across the card. Isn’t this mouse just the cutest??? I love him so much! If you do too, you are in luck. He is on sale right now for a 25% discount!! It is our lucky day!
Just a reminder that this is post 1 of 2 today. I’m back in a little while with a beautiful inspiration challenge from The Card Concept. Please make sure you go check out that FMS team’s work this week and let them know how much you appreciate their work! See you soon!

Well this little guy is adorable! Beautifully colored! And I am so jealous you got to spend the day with Bev! Fun!
Oh this is so cute, Jennifer! Adorable image and so beautifully colored.
I love this cute little guy! And you’ve colored him beautifully. And I love the colors you’ve used — it looks Christmas-y but in a non-traditional way.
Oh this little mouse is so cute and you’ve coloured him beautifully! I really need you to fly into Toronto again so you can give me some marker lessons!!!! That sentiment is so perfect! Love it!
He really is the cutest little mouse! Great coloring too – I really need to dig out my Zigs *sigh*
Oh, Jennifer, I’m like you… I can’t get enough of the Merry Mice set. I LOVE how you used this little guy. The coloring is awesome (great choice of colors in the coloring, too!). Okay, I’ll cut it short… I love everything about this card!
Oh, this cute, cute,cute!!! Love the colors you’ve chosen for the holiday card!
