Sick Little Mouse

Oh, when I first saw this image I just had to have it.  Sick little Henry Mouse is just too adorable.  And, I wanted to focus on the image, and have the option of giving this to a male, so I left off all the bling.  Sometimes I think we get so caught up in adding bling that we forget a few simples layers can have the same effect.
Hubby and I made a big score on Saturday...walked into the department store, took 25 minutes and a whole lotta bucks and walked away with our Christmas Shopping complete.  What a relief!  And on the way home we stopped at the local Butcher and ordered a 20lb Turkey and 10 dozen Perogies for Christmas Dinner, which I host every year.  Things are going to be a little slim this year as my parents are going to be in Florida and BananaStamper is taking her family to her parents for Christmas.  Normally we're about 22 for dinner, but it looks like we're down to 16 this year.  I'm sure that before the day arrives I'll have picked up a few more to feed!

All that's left now is to clean the house (hubby's home so he's been assigned one room every day so it's easier to maintain), decorate the house (hubby has also been assigned this task...he's to set up the tree and then wait for direction), bake 6 different kinds of goodies (the kids will help with this), and make more Christmas Cards!  Like a true card maker, I've already started thinking about Valentine's Cards!  LOL!

Stamps:  Whiff of Joy Sick Henry, Amy R Spring Sentiments

I just love that image...what makes it great is the paper piecing...I hate paper piecing! Cutting those tiny little pieces out. Sounds like you guys are all set for the holiday...I wish I was!
