Happy 4th of July to all my American Friends !!

Bonus Challenge today!!! Shopping Our Stash and the Jingle Belles have teamed up to bring you a double challenge. what a fabulous way to get a head start on your holiday cards. I’m so excited to be ahead of the “game”
Any chance I get to use my favourite little rodents I do, and I have a whole watch of them too. In keeping with the tradition of Sopping Our Stash everything I used is probably over two years old, even the punch I used for the snowflakes. I love non-traditional colours for my Christmas cards and have been know to use pin and green (stay tuned tor that one) hint hint. The stamp is from House Mouse Design
Here is a close up of the cute snowflakes. Now I didn’t take a picture of the inside as I only had a couple of scraps of snowflake paper here at the cottage but will finish it as soon as I bring some from home.
challenge I would like to enter these in are:
Christmas Cards All year round non traditional Christmas colours
thanks for visiting  my blog and check out both Shopping Our stash and Jingle Belles and see what the rest of the design  teams have for inspiration.

These little House Mouse stamps are so cute.
I do like the blue colour for Christmas cards.
Adorable card and I like the touch of sparkle.
Note: yes those bug zappers do work wonderfully. I picked mine up at Regal, many years ago. I have seen less substantial zappers, but can't vouch for those.
