Our weather has finally turned and there is snow low on the surrounding hills. It's only a matter of time now before I'll be stuck driving in the white stuff. Hopefully my car will be up to the task, it is a big reason why I got a Subaru after all... everyone told me that they are great winter cars.
Speaking of winter, I've got another Christmas card to share today and it is one that I've been brainstorming for quite some time now. This past year Sister Stamps has been slowly releasing the twelve Chinese zodiac animals and as soon as I saw the Year of the Rat I thought he looked more like a cute little mouse and that got me to thinking about the Christmas verse, "Twas the night before Christmas...". So of course this card had to be the first I made with this darling little stamp. It seems that Christmas mice where also on the minds of the designers over at October Afternoon this year too because they just released a stamp set called Merry Mouse as part of their Silent Night collection. Personally I think the Sister Stamps mouse is much cuter but I did borrow that sprig of mistletoe from Merry Mouse to add to his little paws. Now not only is this mouse stirring, but it looks like he is on a mission to get a Christmas kiss, LOL! ;)
Alrighty stampers, have a great day and a wonderful weekend. I'll see you back here tomorrow with a winner of the Midnight's Christmas candy!
