Eeek there's a mouse!!

Brrrrr isn't is cold? A good day to batten down the hatches and have a cosy, crafty day me thinks!! Today I've got a little cutie I got at the show the other day so it's the first time he's been inked:


How sweet is he?  He's from a set of Penny Black little cuties.  The papers are Nitwits - Live 'n Learn too with Co-redinations card stock.  The image has been coloured with Copics and cut out and then matted using Nesties.  The stars in the corner and banner are all Nesties and the bigger stars are Die-namics.  I was using a sketch but I accidentally cut the papers out in square shapes as opposed to triangular shapes so I had to abandon the sketch lol!! I have applied Glossy Accents to the stars in the corners to make them look a bit like brads.  I would like to enter the following challenges:-

CES Challenge - Lots of Layers
Crafty Ribbons - One for the Boys
Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
Digi Doodle -One for the Boys
Moving Along With the Times - Cute Critters
Play Date Cafe - Colour Challenge
Crafts and Me - Use a new Image
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes

Well I hope wherever you are you are keeping warm (or cool depending on your climate!!) and enjoying your weekend, thanks for looking and please take care xx
