Whiff of Joy Challenge - a recipe

Firstly, thanks to everyone for bearing with me not visiting you for ages and ages - I have more or less done all the samples for the weekend - woohoo - so from tomorrow will be making some time to try and catch up with you all (think I'm going to be fighting a losing battle but will try my best to visit as many as possible).

This week the challenge on Whiff of Joy is to follow a recipe:

6 Brads, 3 Papers and 2 Flowers.henry-lantern-1 
I started off my card by following last weeks sketch on Mojo Monday but got a little bit lost and landed up with something not quite to the sketch. (There's always one and it's usually me!!) I have used one of the Xmas Henry stamps from Whiff of Joy - each time a new release comes out I say they are my favourite, and this release sure is no exception. I just LOVE this little guy. What a pleasure to colour too. Alison, your artwork rocks hun!!!henry-lantern-3 
I have used MME papers - just love these, def need to stock up at the weekend to use on my Xmas cards (if I ever get any made, I can see me buying them this year ... blush blush!!). I used Liquid Applique on his hat (love this stuff for Xmas cards especially when sprinkled with Glamour Dust before heating to bubble it up).henry-lantern-2

Recipe:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy Henry Mouse with Lantern, HOPT sentiment
Papers: MME Merry Days of Christmas
Tools: Blossom Nestibilities, Circle Nestibilities, McGill Pine punch, 1" circle punch
Embellies: Poinsettias (spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Lava Red), spacers and Basic Grey Boxer brads all from The Hobby House
