It's never too early to..........

..........make a start on Christmas cards!

All those Christmassy TV shows on the craft shows have put me in the mood for Christmas crafting, so I thought I would choose a Makey Bakey Christmas mouse to show you today. Isn't he a little cutie?
I have coloured him in with Spectrum Noirs, which happens to include some lovely deep reds as you can see.

For my cute little mouse, I coloured him up, let him dry a bit, and then dotted randomly with the same pens to give a bit of texture to his fur.

The bauble background that you can see was created with a Crafters Companion 6x6 embossing folder on centura pearl card, which I brushed over with gold Pan Pastel. Finally, I used centura pearl card in emerald green for the matting.

Thanks for visiting today, and a happy weekend to you all.
