PBSC - Christmas

Sunday, 30 August 2009
I couldn't resist entering this weeks Penny Black Challenge which is to make anything to do with Christmas. It was Penny Black's cute Christmas stamps that first got me into stamping and I have a fair few of them, so no excuse not to enter!

This lil mouse is so sweet and a delight to colour in. I've stuck with traditional colours for this card. I have used some stickles glitter glue on bobble and fur trim of the hat, but I don't think it shows in this photo. The ribbon is actually from a Benedicts chocolate box that was enjoyed last Christmas and I thought it would be perfect for Christmas cards this year! It's true what they say, us crafters never throw anything away!
Stamps: Thinking of You - Penny Black; Inks: Memento TB, Copics & Rangers Inkessential;
CS: Core'dinations & Papermania; Tools: Circle Nesties, Snowflake CB Folder;
Embellishments: Ribbon - Stasj, Oval Sentiment - CWC, Icicle Stickles

It's another Christmas card in the box, which is good, but I do need to step up a gear and start making a few more so I don't end up in a mad panic come November and December!

I hope you like the card and please feel free to leave any comments as they are greatly appreciated. I hope you are all having a good Sunday.
