Twas the Night before Christmas - A Winter Wonderland Challenge

Hi!

We've reached another Friday - wow, these weeks sure are going by fast!  And this has been a scorching one and because of that I have to admit to having had a tough time getting a christmas card done!  However, it did get done and this week Lynsey has given us the challenge of 'Twas the Night before Christmas' over at the Winter Wonderland blog.

With that title a mouse comes to mind immediately so I pulled out these cutie House Mouse images from my stash who are decorating their tree - and in this case it's the night before Christmas!!!!  I coloured with my prisma pencils and OMS.  I kept the card very simple in design as I wanted to use lots of punched MS branches to create more christmas tree.  I found these sweet embellishments in my stash so added them to look like decorations on the tree.  Some stickles on the branches add a little extra sparkle to the card.

I hope you're able to join in with us this week - there's a fabulous prize up for grabs again from Delicious Doodles.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment - I always love to know you've visited.  I still haven't found the time to pop onto my favourite blogs and go commenting as I've been making the most of this gorgeous weather and swimming with the boys!   I hope I will get a chance to hop around this weekend!

Take care and enjoy your Friday!

Hugs,
Danielle x

What a brilliant idea Danielle to add the branches on the side....and the added embellishments in the tree. I think house=mouse was a perfect way to go....you coloured it beautifully. I love the paper that you used in the background. Great card Daniellle.
