Not a creature was stirring - Saturday 15th December

Good Morning Blog Friends!

Another Christmas House Mouse today...Christmas is all I seem to have been making lately and to be honest, I still have so many Christmas ideas buzzing around in my head and no time to try them, that I am really going to find it hard to switch back to every day mode. For our first workshop in January we are going to be looking ahead to St Valentines and I haven't even thought about it yet..apart from being my least favourite card making  occasion for some bizarre reason!

I came up with this design last Christmas and made a few more variations of it this is a very simple card featuring a stamped House Mouse, coloured with Promarkers and die cut using a Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Rectangle.  I typed the extract from the story and die cut using tear drop circles threaded with ribbon.

The image die was matted and layered on a gold die cut the card finished off with a poinsettia, ruched ribbon and a little button.

Thanks for stopping by!
