On the doorstep of a New Year :)

Now that Christmas Day is over, we have some more days before we start another Year, a year that brings new hope to those who are encountering a difficult situation. A New Year that may bring new opportunities to those who are looking for new ventures, new work, new Love.. who knows what we are all looking for in life :)
And also to us bloggers.. a new year with maybe more new stamps, new toys to play with, new challenges.. and new friends with whom to chat and share. And most important, to make more people happy with receiving one of our lovely creations; made with love.

We at Roses on Paper also have new exciting things coming in the New Year :) Keep peeping in Summer's Blog from time to time, and at the Store's site!! who knows??! :) lol I'll keep you curious for now! Just to be sure to be one of the first to keep track of what will be happening, you can start following RoP Challenge and Summer's Blogs.. and those of us DT. You'll find these in my sidebar if you'd like.

For today i have some sweet mice celebrating with me ;) lol
Aren't they cute?? I have done these sweet card holders for the sisters in my Community. Those who work with us (carers etc) give us a small donation each, and they gather a small amount of money. Then they buy some mobile phone credit cards for us to use. So this year, I decided to make these cardholders to make them in for them.. as a small surprise :)

I have kept them simple :)
Thank you my friend Susan, who sent me these images to use :) If you are a fan of these cute House-Mouse stamps and haven't yet checked Susan's blog, you must visit her! She's a big fan of these cuties, and make lovely cards featuring them. Go and leave her some lovely messages, to show her you were there.

Hugz to all for now, my dear blogging friends. I hope that you're celebrating with love.. and that you're remembering those who are less fortunate than us.

I used Red and White cardstock, nesties,corner rounder punch, white and red gel pens. Glitter glue for some bling. The images are coloured with pencil colours. The red centre kisses ( both the round ones and even the floers) in between the gems can be found at Roses on Paper's store here.

Thanks for looking

Hi Rosette
Love your card holders - such a great thing to make.

These are sooooo cute Rosette! You had me blushing too. I guess I'm getting known as the House mouse lady. I better post something other than House Mouse on my blog to show everyone that I can make a card using something other than House Mouse...LOL! I just sent you an email too.

Happy New Year my new friend! I'm looking forward to seeing and sharing creations with you in 2009.

Big Hugs,

How sweet these are! I love the little mice! I'm glad to see them keep popping up everywhere. These are just adorable and bound to brighten up the recipient's day! There's something very cherry about red and white!
