Carolling Mice

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...well on my blog at least...I have more Christmas cards to share this week...all using old favourite Penny Black stamps. The one on today's card is from the 'Christmas Critters' set...which I coloured using watercolour pencils, adding some Stickles to the snowy ground. The papers are from the 'Merry Little Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The snowflake was cut using a Memory Box die...and is held in place using a BasicGrey brad...the pearls are from Hobbycraft.
