Christmas Mouse

When I saw the free sentiment Paulette at Create with TLC was offering a few days ago, I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. I had this funny little mousey image, Popcorn and Cranberries, from Phindy's Place on my desk just waiting to be colored in. They are a perfect combo!

I've used the sketch from A Gem of a Challenge (#34) this week. It had two twists with it, stitching and add a sentiment.
