Can you really  believe that this is the last day of February??  Don’t know where this year is going to be honest!  So, things that fly is the new challenge at Bah Humbug this week.  I knew immediately which stamp I was going to use too, yes, those little House Mice have dressed themselves up as Angels!  Cute or what??!  What’s that you say?  Mice don’t have wings?  Well, these ones do!

Edit: Not sure what’s going on with this first photo!  I took them both at the same time, edited them together and uploaded then too!  This first one didn’t look this weird on my laptop last night!!  Second pic is the best representation of colour.

The LO is based on the current sketch at Phindy’s Challenge this week, and I had a little play on words with the rub on sentiment and the poor mouse being deafened by his pal!  He probably wishes he could have a Silent Night too!

The backing paper is DCWV and the spotty paper is My Minds Eye Winter Wonderland Glitter Stack, I picked it up right before Christmas in the sale but this is the first time I’ve cut in to it.  The central snowflake border is a Martha Stewart punch cut from Duofold Gold Snowflake card.  The flower and leaves are by Prima.  The main image was water coloured with pencils and the mice are standing in a field of glitter as usual!  Their wings are also glittered to within an inch of their lives and their halo’s the horn and the red on the candy cane were all coloured with glitter pens!  You’ll be able to see this one from across the room I should think!!  The little star is a sticker I found at the bottom of my Christmas embellishment box and there’s a few little gold pearls for good measure, along with more Stickles on the flower and leaves.
