Dream Valley Challenge 46 - Non-Traditional Christmas

Good evening, all! I hope none of you is being threatened by the floods, it looks dreadful on the News.

Thanks so much for all your kind words about this $%£*&&& tonsillitis, I was feeling very sorry for myself but you cheered me up. Thank you!!

Amazingly, the last fortnight has flown by and once again it's time for a new challenge at Dream Valley This time the theme is 'Non-Traditional Christmas' so put away all those red and green Christmas papers and go for something completely different!

What do you get when you add yellow to Red and Green? Orange and Lime! This cute Cozy Cap Mouse is by Meljen for Whimsy Stamps, he came from Bunny Zoe's Crafts I used Promarkers (the list is below) and stickled the fur trim on his hat. The heart has been Glossy Accented and there are dots made with a 'Perlen-Pen'.

The papers are Basic Grey 'Life of the Party'. I used a Memory Box Frostyville border on each side, both glittered, and the LotV sentiment is on a die-cut from the Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents set. Pearls and twine are from stash.

Scamper along to Dream Valley and see the gorgeousness that my talented teamies have produced, then put your thinking caps on and join in!

Challenges I'm entering: Seems a Little Sketchy provided the lovely sketch, thank you, it's a corker!

and Divas by Design want at least 2 patterned papers.

I hope you all have a great week. Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Promarkers: Forest Green, Bright Green, Lime Green; Peach, Coral; Burnt Orange, Spice, Ginger, Honeycomb; Cool Grey 1, 3
