Gerda Steiner Designs Bloghop #1

Hello everyone! Madey here! You should have arrived from Jess's blog. If you didn't, don't worry.... just read on and remember to click on Gerda Steiner Designs blog and Jess blog listed below!

Gerda has been very hardworking, drawing all these cute critters for us to color. Her latest new rubber stamp set "Smells Like Christmas" was mailed to me, but i live halfway across the globe, so it hasn't reached me and i hope it hasn't gotten lost! *prays* So Gerda sent me some of the digital stamps instead and my itchy finger's just had to re-size them! HAHA...

Even though the digital stamps are currently unavailable to you, i believe if you REALLY love it...... and if you CRYYYY out for your demand, i believe Gerda will do something about it! hahaha.. just saying~

I removed the mug and left the "steam" on it. Made sure the little mice looks like it is smelling the cookies because chocolate chip cookies are awesome during christmas!! You can also download other critters in the store to create the same scene.

I used some of my old patterned papers from Lawn Fawn and Doodlebug from their last year's collection to layer behind. Christmas pattern papers will never go out of style!

To make sure that the furballs on the christmas hat looks sparkly, i STRONGLY recommend using Ranger's Diamond or Icicle Stickles. They have texture and reflects light in white and blue shades.

Adorable card. That cute mouse really looks like he is enjoying the smell of those cookies. Love the background papers you have used.

Wonderful idea combining the images so to make it look like the mouse is smelling those cookies. As a big cookie baker myself, the smell is almost as good as the eating. Sure would love the set or the adorable digi you chose. TFS in this fun hop. Hugs, Debi
