Digital Delights-Oralie the Sleepy Mouse

Greetings Friends! Wow, look what we have today. Oralie the Sleepy Mouse just released for the month of November at Digital Delights. Isn't he so sweet. He is dressed in his pajama's and so sleepy waiting for Santa to arrive. When I was a girl I used to lie awake in my bed for hours waiting for Santa to come so I could catch a glimpse of him. Well, that never happened, just like Oralie.....I was too sleepy!!! lol

This is my first Easel Card and a circle one at that. I have been seeing so many cute ones lately, I just had to jump in. You can find a tutorial for this at Debbie P's Place. I just added an extra circle to mine like I have seen others do that slips under and attached it with a brad for a place to write my greeting and signature.

This is a the card with the custom envelope that I made. This card is 4-1/4 inches round. I made my envelope with "The Enveloper". I cut my sheet of paper 8 inches square and scored at the C and D line. I cut the V that the score made in the four corners and then folded and taped.
I just love this card, it just so cute! I will be making more of them for sure! Thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to visit Digital Delights to see the rest of the Digital Delights Design Team Creations. You can get all the new released at the Digital Delight Digi Shop here. There's so many cute ones to chose from.

Hi Carol.

How are you? Someone told me that you had made an easel card like mine with the extension and to have a look. Aren't they nice and fun to make? I am glad that you liked it and decided to make one for yourself. It's really cute. I like your envelope too.

Happy Holidays,

Such a cute mouse! I love circles, bought myself all sorts of tools to cut circles and have hardly used them and this card might just give me the inspiration to have another play! Beautifully coloured image and I love the pearls in the middle of the snowflakes and the stitching just adds that final wow! Fab card! Thanks for playing along with us at Crafty Cardmakers. Sarah x
