Great Impressions - Christmas mice

Well, we finally have some nice, warm weather in Wisconsin.  It was a beautiful weekend.  But, being my usual contrary self, I started working on my Christmas cards. 

I have been trying to wait a while before coloring these sweet mice from Great Impressions Stamps, but I just couldn’t wait any longer.    I see so many crafters getting a jump on their Christmas cards, so I thought I would give it a try.  Maybe I won’t be rushing to get enough finished in November and December this year.  We’ll see.  One card does not make a trend, but at least it’s a start.
