I'm glad there's you!

Another Christmas card done! We actually had frost on the pumpkins this morning! Brrr, this is wonderful weather. You can see how blue the sky is on my card pix.
Another adorably cute House Mouse image! I watercolored the image and added just a bit of sparkle to the holly. The silver brads are layered on red circles. The metal tag says, "I'm glad there's you!" Whenever I use people or critters, I always wonder what they might be thinking, so I can choose a sentiment. (Yeah, I know) Oh, and I used a white gel pen to color the whites of their eyes~it gives them a little depth.
My inspiration:
Laura's sketch #10 from 2Sketches 4You. And Cute Card Thursday's theme christmas animals.

The last three days were a little busy so I need to catch up on some challenges. What fun! Blessings for a crisp fall day or spring day if you're reading this upside down!
