Dear Father Christmouse

Hi there everyone!

I love that participating in card challenges often means I reach for stamps I haven’t used for years… or have never used! Today I used a set that I haven’t opened for a long while – and chose a stamp that I don’t think I have ever used!

The theme for the current Casology challenge is ‘List’ and I remembered I had this Penny Black Christmas Critter stamp. I didn’t want to create a whole Christmas scene behind the mouse, so instead I masked off the image and embossed a Wendy Vecchi background stamp and did some soft ink blending.

I added a Penny Back die cut and a Dienamics frame to finish off the card.

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge – ‘Creatures Great and Smlla’>

Thanks for stopping by!
