AS You Like It Challenge (DT) Non-Traditional Christmas Animal (penguin free zone)

 Here we are again, for a new themed challenge from

This time it is Non-Traditional Christmas Animals
(and it is a penguin free zone - so no penguins at all please)

I'm sure there will be many arguments and discussions about what is "traditional" and how long does something have to be used before it becomes traditional.  For me, traditional Christmas animals are donkeys, robins, teddies, deer, but I am not sure that mice fall into that category so that is what I have used.

I've had this Penny Black stamp Carolling Trio for many years and absolutely
love it, it just feels sooooo cosy
Stormy night sky done with Distress Inks (Oxides) and the
mice watercolour painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Word die from Sue Wilson, and cut from glitter card
Matting layer from an ancient Dovecrafts Back To Basics Christmas pack

Our sponsor for this challenge is the lovely Tracy from

Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

So gorgeous! LOVE this adorable image and your fabulous winter sky. Gorgeous creation. Hope you've had a wonderful Christmas! I'm trying to do better with blog visits this year, because I'm so sad pals are closing their blogs! IG is nice, but just not the same as blogging! So will try to pop in this year. Happy New Year Squirrel. Hugs, Wends xoxo
