Christmas Eve Party Mice

     Here's my second post today, again using a borrowed House Mouse stamp and other supplies.  I'm not sure which of the two images is the cutest.  If you haven't seen my previous post today, scroll down and check it out, then let me know which image is the cutest.  :-D

     This is what happens when the Mousies' Christmas Eve party runs too late into the evening and nobody has enough energy to tote the kids upstairs to their beds.  The parents stoke up the fire, tuck the sleepy kids into Santa caps, and stumble off to their own beds.  I'm not sure how Santa is going to get down that chimney with the fire roaring but since he has holiday magic, I'm sure he'll manage somehow.

     I colored with ProMarkers this time, then cut the image and punched the corners.  I added a rectangle of patterned dp (a scrap) as a mat for it and corner punched it, also.  The die cut doily was done with die from Spellbinders.  The dp is from SU and is double sided so I got to choose the side I liked best.

     I printed the sentiment, hand-cut it, and inked the edges with a marker.  I liked the lacy doily and decided that it was best without ribbon or other embellishments (which are currently in short supply.)
