My House Mouse Christmas House Project

WARNING - Very heavy on photos!

I bought a cardboard house years ago with the intention of making a
Halloween house.  Recently, while trying to clean out some of
my craft stuff I decided to make a House Mouse Christmas House.
I used a lot of  HMD images and other craft supplies.  The roof
is a scalloped border die and took the longest to complete.

The house itself is stunning but then the family of House Mouse venture out and wow it must have taken you days for this to end up in such a fabulous work of art...xx[aNNie]🎄

What a House Mouse house! I'm coming to stay here for a few days. What festive fun will be happening here? This is just awesome, Sue. It's so cute and creative. I love it. Wonderful job. [Bunny]

Well, my goodness, Sue! Close out the year with a BANG! LOL I prefer your HM house to a haunted house, although it would have been adorable to have the little dressed up mice and their antics around a haunted house, too. LOL So much detail! How sweet the scalloped shingles are. Our roof looks like this one today, with a heavy frost adhering to the solar panels on the roof! LOL It's just not right seeing Spanish Moss hanging from the trees, all glistening from the icy frozenness. Brrrr, we were below freezing! Yikes! Back to your sweet Christmas House, so where will this be displayed in your home? Or will it accompany cookies to be given to a grandchild or neighbor? It's BEAUTIFUL, right down to the miniature wreaths, and must have been fun to make. Thank you for the opportunity of guest designing with you this year, maybe I'll have the opportunity of doing so again next year.
