ABC Christmas Challenge - M is for...

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

'M is for Mice'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Lawn Fawn:
Lawn Fawn
Prize - a Stamp Set & a 6x6 Paper Pad of the winner's choice!

I actually have quite a lot of  Christmas mice images in my collection, and was tempted to go with one of my Penny Black ones, but couldn't resist this little cutie from Bugaboo Stamps called 'Christmas Mouse Ornaments'. I coloured him using watercolour pencils and added some sparkle to the baubles using a Wink of Stella pen. The snowflake paper is from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen, The sentiment stamp is from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous.

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

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.
