We Didn't Ask Santa For One Of Those

Hope you're all having a good weekend whatever you may be up to.

I've been having a bit of a play with another of the Joanna Sheen House Mouse decoupage sheets. This one is from the 'Deck the Halls' collection and it's also one of the many fabulous images included on the new Joanna Sheen 'House Mouse Triple cd Collection'. The backing paper is from the same cd and the embossed snowflakes were done by hand using a brass stencil. Both of the dies I used are Memory Box - Frostyville Border and Crystal Snowflake - which I cut up to fit the design. The sentiment is a leftover from another decoupage and the flower, ribbon and Hobby House pearls are from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Embossing - Dry or Heat'
Simon Says Monday challenge 'Make the Cut'
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'Monochromatic'
The Hobby House challenge 'Christmas' (my 3rd entry)
ABC Christmas challenge 'P is for....' (penguins - my 2nd entry)
Sweet Stampin' Christmas challenge 'Winter Animals' (my 2nd entry)
Divas By Design challenge 'Christmas in August' (my 2nd entry)
Bearly Mine Designs challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)

I'm starting to feel a bit guilty about the dust that's beginning to gather so I'm off now to do a 'quick' flick round with the duster and a Dyson push over the carpets - then hopefully I'll have a bit of spare time to ink up some stamps. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you like what you've seen.

A totally beautiful card wonder the penguins are staring down..that's a very strange looking baby penguin lol!!

Cleaning is a much overrated pastime, and crafting is far better for the soul :)
