House Mouse 'Knit Gift'

 Hi all :-) I am back with the first House Mouse and Friends Challenge of 2014 ! I hope you all had a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and I hope a few meeces snook into your stockings :-)

 I love this 'Knit Gift' image and am so glad it is now available from Stampendous as a cling stamp. So much easier to store than the wooden ones, and cheaper too ! I coloured with copic and added some star dust stickles to make the icy floor ,, brrr :-)

I also used a new Simon's Exclusive Triangle Pattern Die to emboss the white panel, I thought the design looks a bit like knitting :-)

The lovely Natascha is hosting this challenge and the theme is Anything Goes with the option of using this fabulous sketch. 
As always you MUST use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper, or Gruffie to join in :-)

This New Challenge is proudly Sponsored by;
