House Mouse challenge 17 - Let it Snow

I've got my 'Silly' head on again. The House Mouse challenge this week is 'Let it snow'. I couldn't make my mind up what image to use - but Hoppy in his bath kept leaping out at me. No - I thought, that's silly, Brrrr - he would be freezing. The picture that sprung to mind tickled me so that was it - poor Hoppy.
I used the Magnolia Winter Night background coloured with Prismas. Hoppy is coloured with mixed media (Prismas and watercolours), cut out and mounted onto Kanban's Twinkle snow paper. The image is mounted onto blue core-dinations to which I added rub-on snowflakes. Ribbon and sentiment from stash.

Well I think this is excellent Heather, you can sit in a hot tub when it's freezing cold you know, I've got a friend who does just that........ she's not a rabbit though, lol!! xx

Gorgeous card - perhaps a little cruel to Hoppy but he looks happy enough. Love your new look blog - though I was in the wrong place.

The wintery background is beautiful! Hoppy is adorable, I'm sure he will have a steaming cup of coco when he comes in out of the cold!

How sweet!!!! I LOVE IT!!! The first thing I thought when I saw it was that bunny has the right idea...relaxing in a hot tub on a cold, wintery night:o) After reading your post, I realized that was not the original idea. I suppose I should have taken my cue from the "Brrrr". Hahaha!! Okay, I can be a bit of an airhead at times:o) Still, I think the card is FABULOUS!!! I am totally loving the snow; and as always, your coloring is flawless!!! I hope you have a great weekend!!!

Hugs!
Carolyn
