T'was the night before Christmas.........

Well not quite i know, it looked so Christmassy outdoors today with the snowfall we had here in Yorkshire though ! There's still some left even though the snow turned to rain later...boy has it been slippy ! My legs are aching from taking tense steps and i've had a few close shaves with the pavement and nearly hit the floor in Morrisons yesterday ! OMG i was so embarassed,lol,.Anyway whoever ordered the snow it was three weeks early !! would'nt it be lovely to have a white Christmas for a change ?

Ok so back to my card for today, i found this stamp at my local community centre where i run my craft club on Monday night, it was in a little box along with a sentiment stamp,a tiny matching silouette of a trio of mice which will look nice stamped inside the card i think, some clear stamp blocks, clear embossing powder and some inks...all for a FIVER !! so of course i had to have it, what a bargain and all for a good cause.

So i'm not sure of the make of this stamp...Papers are K&co Peppermint Twist...the scalloped edges are created with 'just the edge' cardstock strips by Bazzil and i added Kelly Panacci stickers to add detail....the ribbon is from my stash and i added another sticker from the same set with a brad.I used my H2o's to colour the mouse...was feeling brave as he's so little..i'm dont get on with watercolouring that well..but thought i'd try.

I've noticed that i'm nearly at the 10'000 hit mark....thank you everyone...so i'm going to be putting some candy together for over Christmas ...so watch this space !!

Thanks for popping by and keep warm xx
