Christmas in August




I have lots of people asking if I sell my cards and I alays say no because I don't have the time.. what I mean is I don't have the time to make the kind of cards I like.
I have so much stash here I thought maybe what I should do is make some slightly simpler card with little images that don't take too much colouring.
So I started this afternoon with 2 little mice images that were sent to me by Natalie isn't he cute I'm not sure what make he is.

What do you think?

The papers are the new Dovecraft winter wonderland and I also bought the 12x12 Christmas Blues as they were on offer. Looks like there are going to be a lot of blue themed cards this year!!

Thanks for looking

Sue :o)
