Twas the night before Christmas - Mojo Monday 170 + Stampin for Weekend-Christmas + Papertake weekly-anything goes + Simon says stamp challenge

Good morning everyone...is it just me or is the net quiet it feels like the Marie Celeste and I'm sure I can hear the odd frozen tumbleweed...I decided to put the shopping etc on the back burner until tomorrow (any excuse not to think about it lol) and do a bit of crafting instead and I know its technically not the night before Christmas but I couldn't resist...how cute is this little High Hope Mouse Tales mouse reading his poem...I coloured him with distress inks and teamed him up with some Basicgrey Jovial papers, they suit him don't they...the stamp and papers are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Nikki has some fabulous High Hopes stamps in at the mo so why not hop on over and check them out...I finished with some pages from his book which I printed with Wordart and yes it really is the poem and you can read it, I'm quite chuffed how they worked out, and lush gingham ribbon I bought at the NEC...the sketch is from Mojo Monday and I'm entering this for the Stampin for the Weekend , Papertake Weekly challenges and Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge too...have a fabulous day whatever your up to

I may just read this poem to the meece living in my garage! And even though they are nibbling what shouldn't be nibbled, I have to admit they are still cute - but definitely not as cute as this little fella on your card! The BG papers certainly do suit him. Another gorgeous work of art. Christmas hugs, Sxx
