Coming Home For Christmas

Oh what a nasty grey morning down here in the south, 
it's really wet and windy, I'm glad I'm in the warm..... gonna make hot chocolate in a moment 
for me and my Woody who's of school poorly with a cold today,
 bless him I think its an early case of "Man Flu" !!lol
I've made this card for The House Mouse Challenge their theme is"Let it Snow"
This fab House Mouse Gruffy Bear stamp was a Christmas gift about 3 or 4 Christmas's ago from My Dear friend Vikki and I'm ashamed to say its the first time I've ever inked it up !!
I'm terrible I've got so many stamps just waiting to see some ink 
I really must stop buying and start using !!
The paper used here is DCWV, the sentiment stamp used round the edge
 was a gift from my lovely friend Nicky at Stampingallday
the circle sentiment is from WOJ,
I've also used a SU corner punch and Tim Holtz tree M&S die.
Other "Stuff " used; Crafters companion glitter spray, Arleens Glitter snow,
 Tim Holtz crackle paint, TH textured card and sanding tool, 
nail heads and glamour dust.
I'm also entering it in the following challenges ...
ABC Challenge Christmas Your favourite punch or die, 
mine is Tim Holtz M&S tree die and SU corner punch.
Addicted to Stamps Bingo, I've gone for the top line across which is Red, Dies, Green.
Sweet Stampin Christmas Anything goes
Simon Says your Favourite ....... Mines this Stamp and the Tim Holtz tree die.
Deep Ocean Challenge So this is Christmas
Thanks for dropping by have a warm & happy day
