Santa Claus is Coming to Town

I think one of the activities we all may find trying - is the wrapping of the presents, somehow here it is always left to the last minute... maybe it's time for a change and for me to have them wrapped and under the tree a week before Christmas...just like these mice.  The House Mouse and Friend challenge this fortnight is 'Preparing for Christmas'
I simply stamped and coloured my image in Distress Inks and decided to make all the ribbons silver.. with two different gel pens. Then I sponged in the background with DI.  I used Distress Oxides in three greens to create a variegated panel from which to die cut my pine foliage.  I arranged these to create an 'under the tree' feel and cut a white border to frame the image.  Lastly I stamped my sentiment and roughly cut it out and used foam tape to attach it with a last sprig of pine.  Thanks for taking a peek.
