House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #184 Ongoing thru Jan 3rd

Good Monday morning.  Can you believe that Christmas is only 10 days away?  Time passes so quickly when you have a lot to accomplish in a short time!
Just a quick reminder that the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge # 184, Christmas/New Year theme, or of course, Anything Goes for any of our Challenges too..

We are running this challenge through Jan 3 rd at Midnight to give our House Mouse Team a break for the holidays. 

Hoping you can join the fun, create something, and post an entry.  FIVE prizes on offer this time and a design team call to boot!  See all the details on the House Mouse and Friends blog.

I altered this jar candle for the holidays with a cute House Mouse stamped image.

A closer look at the sweet bunnies.

The back of the jar.

I painted the entire jar with a dries clear glue
and sprinkled it with aqua glitter.
The beautiful snowflake border was cut twice,
it's a Cuttlebug, Anna Griffin die.
I stamped Versamark ink on the borders then
used WOW Vanilla embossing powder to cover the 
snowflakes.  Glued the borders around the jar
with the same white glue (Aleenes)
Colored up the stamped image and cute it out.
Used some Green Frantage around the edges of
the cut out image. Then adhered it to the front of the
jar with pop dots, which I used hot melt glue on
so it would stick and stay on the jar.
Glued the die cut sentiment to the back.
Tied a ribbon aroiund the neck of the jar
and decorated the top of the jar with a die
cut poinsettia and snowflake.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later.............
