Henry's Hot Chocolate Door Hanger

I'm not ready for winter yet I have been trying to hold on to the last bit of summer but its gone for another year and we defiantly have autumn on our doorsteps today which means winter is lurking just around the corner.
Until today I hadn't really got in the spirit of crafting for Christmas but I have been hopping round all the other lovely craft blogs out there and have found the inspiration to make some Christmas projects, so this is the first one a Christmas door hanger made with one of my kits and die cuts all available in my shop Die cut Dreams.
The stamp I have used is one of the new Whiff of Joy Henry mouse Christmas collection I have coloured him with Copic markers stitched and distressed the edge of the oval with my Heidi Swapp distress tool and Tim Holtz "old paper" Distress ink then mounted it onto a scalloped die cut.
I then added lots of festive coloured ribbons, button, punched snowflakes and gems from my stash, the sentiment stamp is from HOTP
I have entered it into the following challenges;
Charisma cardz challenge - Distressing
Creative inspirations - Christmas in October
WoJ challenge - use a Die cut
Idico Saturday Challenge - Stitching
Cupcake craft challenge - Stitching and Buttons
Crafty Catz Challenge - Snowflakes
Paper play challenge - Favourite Embellishment (I used Gems & Ribbons)

This is gorgeous Susie, love the colour of the door hanger and that stamp is just brilliant, think i need him. Crikey my circles are slowly disappearing and they have been so useful, will be back to order more very soon.
