House Mouse Christmas Card #2 and Confession

Hey Everyone!! Ooh, a few more days and it's Christmas! OMG!! It came so fast!

I decided to work on a few more House Mouse Christmas cards . . .I decided to color the image with my Copic Markers. At first I wasn't happy with the results with the Copic Markers but it sort of grown on me. LOL!

I still have a few more things to do. We have a Christmas party on Tuesday and I need to make a few favors and clean the house. Too funny! I do clean the house regularly but I need to REALLY clean the house.

Are you the same way? Do you super clean your house only when guest are going to be coming over to your house?

Yesterday my husband asked me for Christmas cards to send to his side of his family and his friends and I was like "ummm, I thought you were going to send them bought cards?". . .he was like "no, why would I send them bought cards when you make them?". . ..I'm like "but, I just made enough for my friends!" LOL! I gave the cards to him because well, he is the financer of the materials to make the cards so. . .what can I say? "No?" I don't think so considering I need him to continue to support my crafting needs.

Honestly. . .for those who receive my cards and goodies. . .the person to thank is actually my husband. All the goodies I send out was financed by him. . .I just make the stuff! I have to say I'm blessed to have a husband who don't mind paying for all the things I send out including blog candies, gifts, etc. .

Needless to say. . .I'm now short of Christmas cards so I have to make more of them which by the way is a bit too late in the game. Argggh! That's okay. . .I'll make them anyway. . .better late than never, huh?!

I have to make a confession. . .remember all the gift sets that I created? Well, I had an initial list of people to send to then my list grew longer. I sent out the ones I already made and realized I have to make more of them.

So. . .back to churning them out but rather than as a "Christmas gift". . .they'll be more like an "After Christmas gift". LOL! Besides, when I went to the post office yesterday, the post man told me that the stuff I sent may not make it in time for Christmas, especially the ones sent outside of the Continental US. So sorry about that! I'm late . . .as always.

Anyway. . .hope y'all are having a fabulous day!!

Beautiful card Maria...
humm about money my opinion is different, and maybe because my H always say to me, money is for both, so the money is yours too.
You dont work to win the money, but you work to give peace of mind so he can work, so both do work.
This is what I think

Your too funny! I'm in the same boat as you! My hubby finances all of my stuff as well, I may be retired along with him but I can't collect for another 4 years so I need him to support my habit, hehehe!!!

This card is so beautiful Maria! I'm really not ready yet for Christmas, still have lots to do & yes like you I REALLY clean when I know people are coming over otherwise I just dust & vacuum! Wishing you & your family a Merry Christmas!

I love those lil' mice! Such a beautiful card!!!
I clean the same way! I'm always 'cleaning up' and organizing... but a real cleaning is always done right before company, lol!
...and we're on the same page as far as finances go... except I like to think of it as I'm also earning the $, 'cause without all the things I do - nobody would be happy and nothing would get done ;)

Super cute card Maria. I actually have days when I clean and days when I REALLY clean. It all depends on my mood. I'm lucky to have wonderful girls that help me clean and even cook. Natalie, my mini me scrapper loves to cook all the time. She's really good too.

I'm very lucky to have my husband that not only provides all my scrapbooking stuff but totally supports it too. He even goes to the scrap stores to pick up stuff for me if I'm too busy or just lazy. lol. I LOVE my hubby. :)

Maria I have entirely the opposite problem. He moans about my crafting goodies hogging the dining table but then in laws send their card requests to him for me to make. Maybe one of my resolutions should be to start charging him for each card made as he only depletes my stash? Good job its christmas and I am not a scrooge! LOL Christmas Wishes Daffodil PS I still haven't finished making christmas cards for my family I wonder why?
