Merry KrisMouse at Paper Crafting Journey

Oops I forgot to post this yesterday as I went out for the first time in 5 weeks. The new Hobbycraft store opened in Derby and so bad back or not hubby drove me up so I could have a look around. Must admit I wasn't impressed but there is an M&S foodstore nearby so we had to stock up on a few goodies (chocolate profiteroles, raspberry panacotta etc) - well they were part of the £10 meal deal !!

Anyway on to my card for the Paper Crafting Journey challenge which started yesterday. This fortnight the theme is 'Christmas in July' and we are sponsored by the brilliant Rick St Dennis who is offering 2 lucky winners a prize of 3 images each. The DT were very lucky to be able to choose an image to work with and I just couldn't resist this one called 'Eek a mouse'  because it has the traditional santa, snowman, etc but with a bit of fun. I printed the well-known 'twas the night before christmas' verse on the computer and coloured the image with Promarkers and a few touches of Sakura pen and Stickles. Finally I edged the card with a gold calligrapher pen and then fixed it onto a base card.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Stamp and Create challenge 'Christmas in July'
ABC Christmas challenge 'N is for No Embellishments'
As You Like It challenge 'Favourite Special Occasion and Why' (christmas - because it's the time for family)
Charisma Cardz challenge 'No Designer Papers'
CRAFT challenge 'Christmas'
CAS on Sundays challenge 'Christmas in July'
Whimsical Designs challenge 'Clean and Simple'

Thanks for dropping by and why not pop over to PCJ and join in the fun - it's never to early to make a start on those christmas cards.
