House Mouse Monday Challenge

I took today off as a vacation day. Just needed a break from work and figured if I took today then I could get a four day weekend. When I saw the new challenge over at the House Mouse Monday Challenge blog...I decided to play along!

The hardest part of this sketch (for me at least) is that most of the House Mouse images tend to be a bit on the big size. I decided to use one of my mice from my Christmas set...yup...Christmas set.

Doesn't look like Christmas, does it? Well, in the set the mouse really has a santa hat on his head. Instead I used a single stamp of a witches hat (from an inexpensive set I bought at Michael's last year). I stamped it first and then masked it and then stamped the mouse with the santa hat. So now, my santa mouse is a witchy mouse. ;-)

Hope you like it!
