One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Welcome friends to our last CAS CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE OF 2021!
We are still playing with our critters on our Christmas cards this month.
I hope you are all set with all the cards you need for this season!
Here is my card for more inspiration:

And this is what I used to make this card:
The Greetery:  Fir & foliage #2, Tree Trimmings, Shiplap die
PTI: Christmas critters

You have until the 24th to post a card in the gallery and then we will see you next year in 2022!
Thank you for stopping by and hopefully I will see you in the gallery!
I hope you all have a most blessed and love filled Christmas!

Heart Hugs, friends!

Your little mouse in a red sweater is so sweet, Colleen! The gold decorations look beautiful on the Christmas tree, and the wooden floor adds the scene warm and homey feelings!

Such a darling card, Colleen! Your tree is beautiful and I love how you placed this little mouse to create your holiday scene!

This is so cute! The tree is lovely and who doesn't love a mouse in a sweater. He is adorable. I can't decide if he is taking a gift from under the tree or adding it under the tree. I love that shiplap floor.

Hello, Colleen! My mother taught me well, one good turn [or kind word] deserves another! You can't know how much I wish we could all just live in one crafty, card making village! You'd be well tired of me knocking on your door for play dates, believe me!
Thank you so much for that sweet note this morning - and look at this darling little mouse who is greeting me today! LOve his little sweater - looks like he's a great gift-wrapper to have around! and OH I'd be borrowing him for sure!!
Happy Thanksgiving, Colleen!
