Christmas Mouse

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: Buttons and Bows hosted by Kate - you can also enter a card with an anything goes theme as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image that will be fine.

I have used a fabulous image from one of Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Winter stamp sets.


My papers are from NitWit collections and I have used Core'dinations card stock.  I cut my image out with Spellbinders dies, coloured him with ProMarkers and added Darice extra fine glitter


The sentiment is a LOTV stamp cut out with a Spellbinders banner die, the ribbon and button are from my stash.
