Another House Mouse christmas card :D

Hiya Everyone,

I hope you all had a great christmas and you got got lots of crafty goodies!!! This card I made a week ago but I've not had chance to blog it until now as we've been busy over the christmas period what with the new baby, especially as she's the first grandchild on both sides of the family. It is made using a house mouse stamp set that you can buy here at Joanna Sheen. As usual I used glossy accents on the eyes and nose and also did the candle. I also used some white flock on the white bits of the santa hat. The papers are from the papermania silent night A4 set which are really lush (I bought them in June and hadn't used them as I didn't make many christmas cards when I was pregnant). The doily is also from Joanna Sheen which I spritzed with tattered angels gold glimmer mist which I bought here at cuddly buddly as it was too white. The poinsettia flowers are cut with a marianne creatables die which I also got from cuddly buddly (these are the small version). The pawprint metal charm I bought years ago from hobbycraft and the gold trim and burgundy pearls are just from my stash.

I will enter this into some blog challenges if it fits the criteria. In the new year I hope to start blogging more regularly and do more challenges.
