Jingle Belles 40

Let there be Peace on Earth................  our theme for the week is Peace.  I have had this image for a few months.  Got it when I went a little crazy on a rainy Sunday looking at ebay rubber stamp sales.  Yep, the thrill of the auction and shopping from your seat at home - too good to be true until the paypal statement comes in!  But anyway, I liked the image of the House Mouse and the Dove.  Reminded me of the white bird I saw outside the doctors office last December and the problem we were having with mice at home at around the same time.  Come to think of it, not really a very peaceful time for me, but still I think the image is sweet. 

Of course, now I'm going to have to figure out who to send this to.  I realized when coloring it that mice are not particularly tolerated by many.  And lately I've been made aware of more people who have an adversion to birds, believe it or not.  But I allow them this as I probably feel the same way about dogs.  Cats I don't mind...... oh, this would be a good card to send to a cat wouldn't it!  A cat likes mice and birds.  Hmmm, who are my cat-loving friends out there???   You might see this card coming your way, but don't let your cat confuse it with a snack.

The image is stamped onto watercolor paper and colored with my aquapainter and inks.  I then used a die to cut it out and added the Snowflake 2 die above and below.  I found a piece of starred paper for the background and mounted the whole thing on a base of Bashful Blue. 

Let's go check out all the other peaceful scenes.


  1. I like this mouse and this dove...not too fond of real mice! Cute card! :)

  2. This is sooo cute! Even with a mouse! :)

  3. People with an aversion to birds - how can that be? Mice I don't mind in the garden, just not in the house. When I was little I used to try to rescue them from my cat. I can only think of a couple of people I know who dislike mice so much that they don't even like them on cards. I'll admit, though, that while the characters of the House Mice are fun, I find them a bit scrawny looking.

  4. What a great card! I love the starry snow in the background!

  5. i think even the most avian-opposed or mouse-maladjusted person would still adore this lovely and *FAB*U*LOUS* holiday card! it's just flat-out wonderful. come to think, if you can't find anyone... my mailbox is always open to you!!!!! :) :) :)

  6. What a sweet little image ... and I love the snowflake frame ... so glad you joined us at jingle belles.
