A Merry Little Christmas

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: Add a little Sparkle hosted by Lols - 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.

We will be announcing the winners from the Blog Hop on Wednesday 19th November, so make sure you check back then to see if you have been lucky.

I have used an adorable image from Joanna Sheen's Walnut Cradles Christmas stamp set and coloured it with ProMarkers.


I added 3D Crystal Lacquer to the holly berries and lots of glitter to the snow.  My papers are from NitWit Collections and the sentiment is one I had left over from a Paper Creator kit. Everything is matted with red card stock and I added a bow made with ribbon from my stash.


We have two fabulous sponsors:

First of all I'd like to apologize for being MIA for more than a week, but we were in Germany (partly work, partly fun) and now in the midst of rebuilding the upper floors. Hence my absence. But I will try to visit you whenever I can Pauline! Even though I won't be able to every time you put up a new post. But when I do, I am able to enjoy your lovely work again and you most certainly have made such wonderful creations! Always a pleasure to see them! Thanks for sharing, hugs, Ira xox
