Christmas Charm

I have to say that my heart sunk when I saw this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge theme...'Christmas Charms'...I've finished all my Christmas cards...in fact I made too many and have about 20 left over! lol But, I've entered every single one of their challenges...I'm a PB addict...so I had to make something! I've gone 'off piste' a little with my creation...and have made a Christmas tree decoration...which also fits in nicely with the Creative Inspirations challenge to make 'Something to Decorate your Home'.
Here's a photo of it being modelled by my Christmas tree:

I've used 'XMouse Ornament'...well I thought it was appropriate! lol I cut him out, then attached him to a snowflake charm with a string of seed beads.

I'm off to Norfolk today for Christmas...so I'm hoping that the roads aren't too bad, and that the weather stays fine for a bit.

Oooh...and don't forget to check out the new ABC Christmas Challenge...where you can find out all about our Christmas Eve blog hop.
