Christmas Mice

I made this easel card using an image from the Serafina and Friends cd which I decoupaged.  I mounted it onto extra large circle die cuts from Xcut, two of which I embossed with snowflakes.  I punched holes around the large circle and threaded ribbon through it.  I added a sentiment and some holly to finish off.

I am entering the following challenges:

  9. Stunning creation, loving the image and the colour combo too... Oh wow power in prayer or the power and determination and will of an old man to keep on living....his smile today was priceless and he actually ate a bit of porridge and soup for me today. Yesterday we were told to tell family and have his Last Rights given by the Priest, he was not able to open the Golden Gates... I have decided to come home this evening after spending all night with him and try and relax....and this is how I relax....thanks for your sweet thoughts, I value my friends here...♥aNNie
