Rockin Around the Christmas Tree !!

Wanted to think of a really corny title for this, but nothing sprang into my head.

I'm clebrating having a internet connection again, we got so fed up with all the connection problems and having to go to the awful internet cafe we bought a internet dongle thingummy, it will work out cheaper in the end than using the internet cafe at 20 mins for 1.20, when i typically spend 3 or 4 hours at a time on line it quickly adds up to lots, and it's so much more comfortable semi reclined with my feet up (how I am supposed to be) and the lappy, than trying to sit upright in the wheelchair (not what I'm supposed to do), which knocks me out of action for several hours afterwards, because my back, neck and legs lock up, then go into spasms.  Anyway enough of that. -  Far too boring.

George has been very busy and putting up the Christmas deccies, under my expert supervision, of course hehehe, so it all very festive now.  I made a few more different ones this year and re-vamped a few old ones.

Rainbow Lady's  challenge this week is Christmas Animals, I had a hard time trying to decide what to do for this challenge as I have so many christmas animal images, but decided to have this one as I haven't given House Mouse Designs an outing for a while now.   I just love the thought of those sweet rabbits decorating their tree with carrots like this.

I kept it simple as they are so lovely on their own, it's an easel card, I used an MS Snowflake corner punch and layered on to silver mirri, then cut some MS Snowflakes shapes from glitter paper to put on the base.
