Enjoy the Moment

I thought I'd make another Christmas card.  This cute little mouse is from Penny Black and the stamp is "Let it Snow".  I love Penny Black images because they're so cute.  Well, OK, I love just about every stamp I ever meet LOL!  My image is an older PB, but have you seen the new Christmas and Halloween PBs?  Oooh, they're adorable.  I used some of last year's BoBunny christmas papers on my card.  I love this paper and really wish I had stacked up on huge amounts of it.  I usually hoard my papers, but not this one.  I used it a lot last year.  I love that shade of aqua with red -- so pretty!

I used my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol to color my image.  I added glaze for the icy patch and some glitter and stickles for the snow.  A little piece of ribbon and a button tied with floss and that was pretty much all it needed.  My sentiment is from my  PTI Mixed Messages set.  Wow, I really do use that set a lot.  I should probably look around for a new set of tiny sentiments.  If anyone has a great set of itty-bitty sentiments you love, let me know where to look so I can check them out.

I want to thank my new followers that have signed up and thank all of you for stopping by!
