Playing catch up and A House Mouse Challenge Card!

I have been spending a lot of time in my craft room since I came home from Virginia last week. I really missed being around all my stuff and in my comfortable space making cards and doing my thing. I have been pretty productive and have surprised myself in how many things I have made. Today I want to share a card I made for the Christmas Card Club I am part of. Every two weeks someone in the club will name a challenge and everyone gets busy and makes a card to meet the challenge. If you would like more info about the club (we do Christmas cards year round) and how to join check out the side bar and contact any of us to get more information or to join us in the fun!

I am starting to get caught up and this challenge was actually due about a month ago. On this week the challenge was called by Sylvie to make a card with mistletoe on it! I remembered this House Mouse Clear Christmas Stamp set that has one stamp that has mistletoe on it and viola here is my card.

Card stock: Stampin'Up! Real Red, Garden Green, Very Vanilla
