Cozy evenings

At this time of year there's nothing better than to snuggle with a cup of cocoa by the fire.  My hubby picked this image out on one of my last House Mouse orders, obviously unaware of how much work it would be to colour!  Despite the size and detail, it was a lot easier than I expected because it's largely the same colours used over and over again. In case you are wondering, yes, I did use Copics and they did a great job.

The layout is really simple, with such wonderful artwork in the base image there's not much needed!  A bit of ribbon and cord as an accent and some layers of carstock to matte it and that's it!

Speaking of that artwork, take a look at the picture - are the little micey's running around frantic?  Obviously they don't live in my house lately LOL!  I hope that you all manage to take some breaks from baking and  shopping and Christmas prep in order to rest and reflect and enjoy some quiet cozy evenings with friends and family!
