ABC Christmas Challenge - L is for...

It's time for a fun new ABC Christmas Challenge...Mandy is the host, and the theme is:

'L is for ?'
Well...whatever you like, as long as it begins with L!

Our sponsor for this challenge is Drawn with Character:
Prize - 3 images of the winner's choice!

I picked a cute Penny Black image (from the 'Christmas Critters' set) of some wee mice caroling around a Lantern, and coloured them using watercolour pencils...giving one of the mice a Lime green scarf. I created a snowy little scene for them using my Simon Says Stamp 'Falling Snow' background stamp (embossed in WOW 'Sparkling Snow' embossing powder), and some Lawn Fawn 'Stitched Hillside Border' dies. I fussy cut the mice, the added them popped up on 3D foam pads. I thought that thy might be singing 'Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!' so added an appropriate 'L' sentiment (from a set by Lili of the Valley).


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

It was a dark and cold night when the mice started out on their adventure. They were so happy to have some light to help guide them through the snow!
Love your cute card Helen!!
