With Love at Xmas with the Joanna Sheen Design Team

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
 Today is another fabulous challenge at the 

The theme is

With Love at Xmas

So here is what I created for my design team inspirational piece but do hop over and see all the rest of the wonderful creations on the main challenge blog
okay for those of you who are not sure, it is my version on a ribbon Xmas Tree

I have used many of the gorgeous little images on the 

House-Mouse Designs Christmas Rubber Stamps - Trio of Stockings JSHM034

House-Mouse Designs Christmas Rubber Stamps - Keyboard JSHM038

House-Mouse Designs Christmas Rubber Stamps - Sleigh Mice JSHM040

but there are others you could use

here are some close ups of those little meecey's

How did I make this one
one 12 x 12 piece of card any colour and rolled and secured in a cone shape, trimming the bottom level
Several colours of florist ribbon, cut into 5 inch lengths
One Ribbon curling thingy, the one with the shredding teeth
Shred each strip, fold in half and attach going around in colours till at the top.  I used an elastic band to hold the ribbon whilst each layer dried.
Once dry, cut all the hoops and fluff up the ends
Add a star, mine is four star die cuts, scored at the half way point and all glued together for the all around look.
and of course lots of image of your little mice
mine are coloured in copics, with added glitter and Atyou.
hope you give it a go, mine looks great on my fire surround.

Why not get some more ideas about what you can do with items sold in the
