Three Christmas Mice

Sorry, I've been forgetful and forgot to welcome my latest follower, Sam. Thanks for joining and I hope you find something here to interest you and that you manage to pop in from time to time.
Well, it's been another hot day today and the clothes out in the laundry were calling out to be done. I started early and finished hanging out the last load about 4.30 p.m. I also washed the dishes and sorted out several boxes of craft. My lounge room is very slowly getting back to normal. I still have a folding table in the middle of the room with lots of containers overflowing and also boxes and bags on the floor. I have so many bits of paper with embroidery patterns and copies of projects etc it is going to take me forever to get them into folders. I also sorted out several boxes of beads, I need more containers, LOL. I think I should have made a New Year's Resolution not to buy any beads this year and to use up my stash. I still have another very large container with beads in but I think I will leave that until some of these other boxes are sorted.
I know, LOL. I admit it, I need help, I am a Craftaholic!!!!
Well, onto my card for today.
I decided to make a Christmas card, I think this is the second one for this month and hopefully if I keep on track I won't have to stress at the end of the year!
The basecard is SU Real Red then a layer of SU Old Olive, The two DP's are from My Mind's Eye and the second one is layered onto a red piece as is the image.
The stamp is a House Mouse one and was inked in SU Basic Grey and coloured with Copic Markers. I stamped the paisley shape in Real Red and then cut it out and tied a little silver tree charm to it. To finish it off I added 3 pieces of bling to the corners and one to the little flower in the middle of the paisley shape. I decorated the inside with a white piece and a piece of red and a piece of DP. The sentiment is from SU clear mount set Beautiful Season.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
