Santa's Coming!

Hello everyone!

 It's only a week until we launch over at Unicorn Challenge.
It's my turn to share a card on the challenge blog before we go live on Tuesday.  Please come over and follow us and grab our badge so you don't miss out on our first great themed challenge.

 Here is a Christmas card I have made using a free kit from a magazine.  There were three images of these little mice but it was a while ago and I can't find the magazine now so I'm not sure which one it was!  I have layered him with gold mirror card and christmas papers from Dovecraft and added some bling and a stamped sentiment.  I think he's very cute indeed!
