The Tale of the Christmas Mouse

I have been busy crafting this evening and made a little Christmas stocking filler. This project is definately for someone with a sense of humour. I found the funny little Christmas poem HERE and there are lots of other verses there too. The poem explains it all:

On Christmas Eve when I was snug in my bed,
Guess what some little "creatures" were doing instead?
Little mice were making their stops
And of course they left their teeny-tiny "plops".
On Christmas Morn I did awake,
Oh me, oh my, oh goodness sake!
Those adorable rodents had left such sweet gifts,
So I gathered and packaged them up in a jiff.
And now this Christmas a present to you
This little bag of mice "doo-doo"!

Packed up inside the cute gift bag I designed is a bag of chocolate coated nuts and raisins. I had this great little mouse stamp from House Mouse by Joanna Sheen which finished it off nicely. Tutorial for this project to follow soon! I have designed this project for the following challenges:
Winter Wonderland: Have a Mousey Christmas
Bah! Humbug: Presents
Sir Stampalot: Christmas Traditions
