Christmas Cheer

Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for me to remind you of the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Stacy's turn to choose the theme and she chose "ATC Turn About" - Make an ATC and then turn it into a card. I had some blank ATC's I bought ages ago and hardly used, so without this challenge would never have got them out.   The stamp is HMLR1036 Christmas cheer, and this gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new Spellbinder dies - Layered Poinsettia which my hubby treated me to last week.  I am really loving these CAS creations at the moment.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

Pleased to see you putting that new poinsettia die to good use Tracy, if you're like me you'll use it over and and again.

The card is beautifully thought out and very eye catching.

I didn't have a comment box anywhere to leave a comment - I tried a couple of times but gave up.
Success to day - I presume it is my stupid computer.
A gorgeous image, stunning embossing and I love that beautiful poinsettia.

This is just gorgeous Tracy. Those little mice are so cute. Love your poinsettia and the lovely white embossed background.

Thanks for entering our Zoo challenge at ABC.

Could I ask next time you link directly to your post not just your blog as it takes too long searching for the post you think was entered into the challenge :-)
