Another Christmas scene card

Hi guys, I can't believe I'm so in the mood for Christmas cards, so here is another one lol,
At Magnolia down under they want to see your favourite colours, well mine at the moment are certainly these, based on Taupe/browns, grey/ blue and cream/ beige, varying the strength of the re-inkers gets you the different depths of colours too,
I had a change this time and stamped out the house and the roof images, coloured them up, layered the roof onto the house again like before but this time then mounted the finished house onto some card stock leaving a small edge visible, again I've used a Doo Hickey swirl die for the smoke,
Edwin is from an older collection and when I saw this gorgeous Walter the moose stamp from the last  autumn collection my mind worked it's own mysterious way and saw this effect where Edwin had mistaken Walter the moose for a Christmas tree, hence the cat saying " should have gone to spec savers"
excuse my hand drawn talk bubble lol

I used a small clear stamp I've had years for the light bulb string and stamped this onto Walter and then cut them  and Walter out, shaping his antlers forward a little,

Edwin is again cut out and layered with pin flair glue too, again slightly shaping him before hand to make him less flat and look  more tangled up lol,
The trees, fence and snow bits have again been done with snow Tex, so love this stuff!
finished view again,
