Christmas Animals at An Oldie But Goodie

 Good morning.

It's Tuesday so that means it's time for a new challenge at
and this time it's the lovely Tracy's turn to host 
 with the theme
(make the animal the main feature on your project)

We have a fab prize up for grabs to the winner and all the details can be found over at the main challenge blog, along with last fortnight's winner and Top3 and some gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

Remember you must use an image that is STAMPED (not digi images - sorry) and it must be
at least 
Here's what I came up with:

I love this House Mouse image - it is one of my all time favourites - especially the little one all curled up
outside the stocking - soooooooo cute :o)
Image coloured with PM's
I used a Martha Stewart PATP - Scrolled Lace for the matt & layers - with Gold Satin Mirri Board
Design Paper - just peeking through is also House Mouse Design - from Joanna Sheen
Sentiment - House Mouse
Satin Ribbon from stash - threaded through a Spellbinders ribbon label tag.

Our challenge will run for FOUR weeks this time so you have plenty of time to join in the fun :o)
