Happy Xmouse!

morning all,
postie has been but still no sign of the new liliofthevalley stamps grrrr! i can't wait for them to arrive.
in the meantime i have been busy with some christmas cards. this one is is being entered for the challenges over at Paper Sundaes and also The Crafty Pad. my first time on both these site but equally lovely and i will follow with interest, what a great find.
back to my is a simple layout, great because i'm rubbish at getting the layer straight lol i've used papermaia products, cardstock and papers. the sentiment is also papermania. a x-cut snowflake punch and a cutie penny black stamp, i think he's called xmouse. ribbon was a gift from my friend papercraftpat (hello pat)!
