House Mouse Challenge #38 -- Sketch

Tonight I am participating in the House Mouse Monday Challenge #38. This week we have a great sketch and loads of fun.

Spring is well underway and even our temperatures are getting up there, reminding us that summer isn't far off. So I took this adorable image of the House Mice munching away on a rainbow sherbet bar. They look so happy! I colored the stamp with PrismaColors, blended with baby oil. The DP is from the DCWV Glitter Paper stack and the CS is also DCWV Glitter. The embellies on the outside as well as the inside are from K I Memories Juicy Summer collection.

And here is the sketch:
Thanks for stopping by and if you want to see some really fantastic cards for this sketch jump on over to House Mouse Monday and see what the Design Team came up with and, of course, other crafters.
A special note to Carolyn who got me hooked on these cute little critters: Hope you are feeling better --- and thanks for the inspiration.
