House Mouse - Something New

I had some time to finally play along with the House Mouse Challenge #110 to create a card with something "new." Well this little mouse clearly has a new hat and slippers, and it looks like Momma mouse is knitting a new sweater to match! I added a felt & card stock snowflake with a mini star brad and a sentiment that describes a chilly day. I sponged the sky with Ranger broken china ink and colored the image with Copics. It's just a C&S card, and these cute House Mouse images really need no sentiments, but I added one just for fun!
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you all have something "new" to enjoy in new year!!

Carol, This is adorable. You do such a great job with sponging skies. I'm really going to have to practice that more. The image is cute on it's own, but your coloring really brings out the best of it. Terrific sentiment. Your snowflake came out so cute. I also have a problem punching felt sometimes. More practice. Have a good evening.
