Christmas is in the Bag!!!

I know, I know so many Christmas posts but there are so many challenges out there to get a jump start on the holiday season, and I've had extra time this week and a good bunch of mojo. I really like Merry Monday challenges and this past Monday really intrigued me and I had the perfect stamp for it. I hope you don't get tired of seeing my House Mouse creations because I love making them.  Right the challenge is to make a holiday card with a bag or sack on it. Oh and Crafty Hazel nut's Christmas challenge is to put a sentiment on your card. I thought of entering something old nothing new challenge at House Mouse and friends but had to go with the Anything goes section as the die I used is less than a year old, the stamp is 2009 and the rest is at least 1 year old.

This took me longer to decide what paper to use than it did to put it together.

The fur on "santa's" hat and coat is liquid pearl and the snow is done with stickles.

Finished the inside with a favourite sentiment and a scrap of patterned paper.

Merry Monday Christmas challenge #207 Use a sack or a bag on your Christmas card.
