All Creatures Great And Small ...

... A Moxie Fab World challenge.
I'm a regular visitor to Cath Edvalson's Moxie Fab World Blog, there is always something on there that inspires me. You just have to be careful not to visit late at night or you'll end up crafting until the early hours - like me last night!!
The latest challenge is to create a card with a lil' festive critter on it and I just couldn't resist making a little mouse card as I love the poem 'Twas The Night Before Christmas'. What made my night of crafting even better was discovering this gem of a festive kit in the Sweet Shoppe store (Santa Season by Melissa Bennett) No mouse in there though to go with the stockings to be hung with care in hopes that Saint Nicholas will soon be there so I had to go searching for a lil' mouse. Sweet Shoppe came good again and I found this sweet little mouse in this kit. I chopped off her tale (not with a carving knife like in the nursery rhyme but with my scissors!) and replaced it with a knotted length of Papertrey twine. I added a pretty paper trim with my most favourite Martha Stewart border punch to finish it off
