A Belated Merry Christmas-House of Mouse Style!!!

Happy Sunday dear blogging friends!!

Wishing you all a belated Merry Christmas...hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and are still enjoying some time with family and friends!!

It has been very busy here with family and the arrival of our newest member...our DARLING Max!!   My Daughter-in-law's first description of him was "He's SO stink'n CUTE" and truer words couldn't have been spoken!!!

I have all of my closest friends' "cards" done but haven't had a chance to meet and give them their cards...this is the last of them and she is banned from my blog until I meet with her this week!!!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
and yes it's another clock...I had to do something similar for all of them and I am so having FUN making these Tim Holtz clocks...
I think that I may make one for!!!...
the friend that this is for has always shared my love for the sweet little House Mouse crew...
 this is "Gifts to Tie" HMCV02...
coloured with Prismas...
 and here is "Monica's Gift" HMD1017...
the sentiment is from Whimsy...
 this hanging darling is called "Light Hanging" HMUR1046...
behind him the back of the clock is decorated with Snow Tex and Glamour Dust along with lights that I strung on string...
I mounted two small working lights inside the clock to make him light up and covered the bottom and sides of the clock with Snow Tex as well...
 this sentiment is from Stampingbella and cut out using Spellbinders Small Banners...
 a side view...
the tag is also from the same Whimsy set as above...
you can get a little peek of one of the working lights...
the poinsettias are Prima and the pine branches are Dee's Distinctively IME-028...
So this is my final Christmas "card" done...WHEW!!!  Maybe I should start now for next!!!
All materials and stamps are listed above.
Challenges I will enter:
House of Mouse and Friends-Challenge #184 "Christmas/New Year"
Gruffies and Guest-Challenge #12 "Anything Goes/Blue & Silver Option
Until next time...thank you for taking the time to stop by!!!  Your visits and comments are so very much appreciated!!
Wishing you all a VERY Happy and Healthy New Year!!!!  Happy crafting!!!
