Jingle Bells, Jingle Belles Jingle all the Way!!

 Yes I know I spelled the Jingle Belles wrong the second time, that is because this card is for their "Cardstock Christmas" gasp no patterned paper oh my what would be next. I am usually dashing in on almost the cut-off date but this time I had a jumpstart as a few challenges ago at the Jingle Belles it was inspired by a movie or song and I stamped and coloured this image but ran out of time to finish it, so tucked it away in the "parts" box just waiting for a time to "break it out" 

Any chance I get to use my many House Mouse stamps I will, I just love these little guys and most everyone I send them to love them just as much. I smooshed some watercolour paper on two or three distress oxide inks on my glass mat (finally getting some practice on it)  The image was fussy cut cand elevated with some foam tape, altough You really can't see that in the picture. I added an Impression Obsession sentiment and a few sticker snowflakes.

Finished the inside with a Stampendous sentiment that I can never stamp straight even with a stamp positioner, but I kinda like it on a slight angle. The mouse snowman and snowflake were from a sheet of PSX stickers I was gifted from a good friend. (I miss her)

I am entering this in:
