this is my mid-november design team creation for the penny black and more challenge theme of anything goes! i watercoloured this tiny mouse image from the penny black jolly friends clear set (30-058) with distress inks and added some snow dots and stickles on the pom pom. there are some fabulous prizes and remember that to be eligible, your focal point has to be a stamped image and it can be any company’s stamped image, just no digis.
i also made this for the current jingle belles prompt by guest star and regular participant Marie Bingaman, who suggested family holiday traditions which, for marie, changed after the passing of her grandfather and then her father. christmas, like many other holidays, is more painful without a loved one and many families no longer participate in traditions or they create new ones. when my son passed away four years ago, everything changed and i had to force myself to accept the ‘new normal.’ our christmas is now a scaled down version so my tiny tag was inspired by the tiny tree, tiny ornaments and much smaller dinner.
thanks for popping by.
