Christmas Cookies

Hi Folks!
Long time and no action on my blog, but life has been hectic lately! Still good news, I have now finished work for the summer holidays so I've got a BIG smile on my face!! 
The new challenge is just starting over at Sweet Stampin' , this week we have chosen a theme which has become something of a blogging tradition at this time of year:


Now, I have to raise my hand and admit I don't usually start my Christmas cards until at least December (I only make ones for special family members) so getting out the Christmas supplies on a hot day seemed all wrong!! Still at least this will be one less card to make in a mad rush!
The stamp is of course by House Mouse and the papers are magazine freebies from years ago!

Here's the close up view, a really mixture on this -
promarkers, flexmarkers, distress ink and glitter pen.

At least the glitter and the fluff on the little mouse's hat dried quickly in the hot weather - before I stuck my finger in it!!

Also used my new poinsettia dies from Robert Adams that I bought way back in February!!

Thanks for visiting today! 
I'd also like to join the following challenges:
Gruffies and Guests - Lazy Days or anything goes
Stamping Sensations - Feature a Creature
