Hugs and Kisses for my Bird at Christmas

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge 
at the 
with the theme of 

Favourite Things

Now my favourite thing is this sweet image and it is just perfect for my recent "Wife" card requests
This is an 8" card
The base layer and contrast is a deep burgundy, with those lovely new Papermania papers on the top.  I used one of my grand decorative nesties to create a layer to add the image too.  Before adding a lovely lush ribbon with a gold/pearl brad (cut) onto the top of the bow from the Hobby House, a little charm (Hobby House) and then an array of flowers from various places.  I finished off with those gorgeous Hobby House pearls - the link to the Hobby House is in my side bar.

Here is the close up of the sweet House Mouse image
I have been enjoying colouring the images up whilst watching my weekend evening tv, so relaxing.

I would like to welcome my new followers, and thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Allsorts - Bring on the Bling
