Cold & Frosty - Joanna Sheen

Morning :) 
Well SkyFall was Ace ! - I quite like my Bonds' mean & moody and it was a fabby film! 
Now, we have a new challenge starting today over at the Joanna Sheen Challenge Blog, where this fortnights theme is 'Cold & Frosty'.  The winner will receive a brilliant Joanna Sheen voucher to spend online, so well worth playing along.
I was sent this adorable House Mouse image - House Mouse Winter and it was so lovely to use.  I coloured with Distress Inks, and then added some Aleenes glitter snow with a paintbrush and sprinkled extra Fairy Dust on top. The papers are Memory box, sentiment is LOTV and the dies are a mix of Cheery Lynn, spellbinders and Memory Box.  The berries are again borrowed from my pot pourri bowl ;)
I am now in countdown mode until Dec 13th when the wonderful Richard Armitage is back on my radar (even though he is a beardy dwarf) in The Hobbit - I absolutely cant wait for that :)

Now that would be an interesting little exercise - listing all the the items that your pot pourri bowl has supplied you must have been huge to start with. The colours are just spectacular & I love all the snow with the pale icy sky behind the little chap. He's great fun with his little tongue & snowy cap.
