ABC Christmas 'M for Mice'

Did you know that there are only 185 days left to Christmas!! yes its true!! it's time to make a start on your cards if you ask me ;-)

This week on the ABC Christmas Challenge it's the lovely Sue's turn to host and the theme is 

M for Mice

now I know you will all be expecting me to have used House Mouse stamps BUT as we are sponsored by my lovely friend Kelly Marie Alvarez, owner of Lawn Fawn, I thought it would be nice to use her cute little meeces instead ;-)

I used a Merry Christmouse set which was especially made for STAMPtember® 2015, so it is now unavailable, but Lawn Fawn do lots of other Christmas sets which are just as cute, CLICK HERE to see them ;-)

I used a Memory Box Script Christmas die which is also now discontinued, THIS is the updated version, which I prefer, so I am going to HAVE to buy that one now! Luckily I have  lovely new notepad to jot my crafty NEEDS into now so I won't forget to order ;-)

I coloured the little mouse and cheese tree with copic markers, I then masked the tree and used white embossing paste, lightly coloured with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink and a Falling Stars Stencil to make the background.

I also made a goodie bag to go with the card, I am suspecting that something 'Pandora' will be popped in here closer to the day ;-)

Thanks for looking and thanks Kelly for sponsoring the challenge! ;-)

The lucky winner will receive a lovely stamp set AND a 6x6 paper pack of your choice! Woo Hoo!
