My goodness it's cold here today! The wind is icy and chills you right through. Been out shopping for the food for the Xmas party on Saturday - 48 coming again this year - hope the weather holds and we don't get as much snow as last year when after spending the Friday cooking Turkeys we woke up on Saturday to 2 feet of snow and unable to get out of the drive - Party cancelled till the New Year! Hope we don't have a repeat this year, if only because I would like to be able to get my OWN food in my freezer!
Thought I'd share another one already in the post -
I followed a sketch from somewhere for this - then forgot to enter it, now can't remember whose sketch it was - what a sorry state!

Mo's image coloured with promarkers then layered onto red cardstock.
Little mouse doesn't look cold does he? All snuggled up under his blanket.
The backing papers are from My Mind's Eye and First Editions and the sparkly gems are from my stash.
I added a bit of red ribbon and am still playing with the new nestie tags as you can see!

Come and Get It - Red, Green and one other (and I used cream) colour
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
