Number 20!

Hello and happy weekend! Sharing a Christmas card today...this is number 20 so far this year...which is definitely a record for me! I was determined not to have a last minute panic...still loads to go but at least I feel as if I've tried :)
The image is a cute little House Mouse stamp which I've coloured with copics, papers from a pad which was a gift from my lovely sister. The dark red paper is embossed with stars, don't know the make of the e.f. Die cuts are Sizzix Tim Holtz. The tiny stars are mdf. It was a quick and easy make!
Thanks for calling by today, hope you're enjoying the weekend!
