House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #231-"Anything Goes Christmas"

Good Monday morning dear blogging friends!!

Did everyone enjoy their weekend??!!  My hubbie and I had the two Grandsons for a sleep over...tiring but oh just SO much fun!!!  Little Max...not quite two...has been fighting bed time lately but easily fell asleep watching "my Daddy's hockey" (he insisted his Daddy was playing) with Grandpa...he was actually snoring and was out in about 10 minutes!!  Quinn and I had a snuggle while we told jokes...he fell asleep in no time as well with his forehead resting on mine...SIGH!!...just grabs the heart strings!!!

Okay well onto to today's post!  Today we begin our final challenge of 2016 at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge...the whole team is hosting this one and our theme is "Anything Goes Christmas" that's a SUPER easy one!! 

Here is what I came up with...

I made a simple 6X6 card...
DP is from my stash...
I added a piece of burlap and then my image...
 this super sweet image is "Reindeer Games" HMCR05...
coloured with my copics...
I added lots of Chunky White Frantage for my "snow storm"...
the ground snow is Flower Soft...
 to the bow I added some twine, a bark heart and berries...
"greetings of the season" is Stampingbella...
