ABC Christmas Challenge - L & M

It's the first Wednesday of the month so it's time for a new ABC Christmas ChallengeHelen's our host and the themes are -

'L for Love'
'M for Mouse' 

Our sponsor this month is -

Wild Rose Studio
The prize is a 6x6 'Festive Florals' paper pack and a 'Teddy Baubles' clear stamp!

There's also a prize from Helen for another lucky winner

I've made an 'M for Mouse' card, using a cute stamp from Penny Black.  It also kind of fits the L theme as wee mousie seems to be loving that snow.

Daisy Mouse

This is one of the stamps I was lucky enough to receive for my birthday.  I got to choose and couldn't resist this one, partly because it's a cutie and partly because it's got the same name as one of my last rats (my Daisy was also a cutie, as well as one of the naughtiest rats I've ever known).

Image stamp - Whipper Snapper 'Daisy Mouse'
Papers - Studio Light #69
