Christmas but no mouse

Image
'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;


This time over at Digistamps 4 Joy we would like to see Christmas cards with NO creatures not even a mouse The  challenge this time will last for 4 weeks and if you enter a  no mouse card to the inlinkz,you will also be permitted to enter an "Anything Goes" card too, BUT it MUST have a DS4J image, how cool is that! I used the fabby digi image Santa Stuck that you can find in the shop here , Coloured with promarkers  - i have used glamour dust on the top of the chimney and on Santa's trousers. on the sleigh I have used polar white flower soft that I managed to make a fabulous mess with .
Thank you for looking
