Mice and Joyful

I've been rather distracted this week as Dad had to go in hospital for an operation... he's home now and doing well and yesterday I was determined to make a card so I picked out a decoupage that I'd made up a couple of weeks ago. It's one of those super sweet images of the little mice family from the Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage CD and I cut it down to a square before matting on to gold mirri-card. The holly leaves are a Tattered Lace die with a few pearls added and the 'joy' is a Tim Holtz matching stamp and die.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

CD Sunday challenge 'punches and/or dies'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'anything goes christmas'
ABC Christmas challenge 'e for edge / f for family / g for girls' I picked f for the House Mouse family
Die Cut Divas challenge 'for thee love of animals / pets'
Making Memories challenge 'add some layers'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a great weekend. I'm off to visit Dad and take his shopping but hopefully I'll get round to visit you later and maybe even have time for a crafty play.
