Holly Mice


I've only a few decent pages and a few scraps of these Authenique papers, so my layout is related to what I had left. Do think the papers work really well with these Holly Mice from Penny Black I think its quite an old stamp so you may difficulties getting it.
The usual suspects Martha Stewart Holly punch, the cuttlebug corners, ribbon and the tiny scallop border again from Martha Stewart.
The image is quite big for my normal square size so there wasn't much else I could add.
Considering I've wrapped my parcels, written my cards etc ready for last weekend, this week has been busy so I'm feeling exhausted having barely got over the last weekend.
But I shouldn't complain one of the days this week was a trip to Crafts U love to get my Christmas present from Hubby whose whisk it away it isn't anything exciting but its storage for the thin dies and will work to save me a tiny bit of room! I got to say Hi to Suzi and the crew there and spent quite a bit of money I what I class as essentials. I also popped over to Art of Craft in Farnborough needing some advice on wool and there was a class and I finally meet the lovely Brenda who obviously needs to teach me all things Tim.
I did managed to get in my craftroom for a little while yesterday, discovered Mr Mojo was exhausted too and one card found its way in the bin although I did save the image but still don't like the card I eventually made.

Oh my goodness...what a sweet image...they are just too cute!

I love the papers you used...gorgeous colours together. The holly from the gifgham is fabulous!

I just bought that Martha punch! I went across the border to the USA tonight with my daughter. We stopped at Michaels and they had all the Martha Stewart Christmas stuff for 70 % off. Can't believe my luck...I got that holly punch for 3 American dollars and I got the huge snowflake border punch for 6 American dollars.
I am one happy bunny!!!

Don't work too hard...I know you have difficulty with your mobility too and it is not worth it to over do it! We can't be letting our arthritis interupt our papercrafts!!!
