Sleepy mice

   Who could resist these little sleepy mice? Have they fallen asleep whilst waiting for Santa or are they tired out by all the Christmas preparations?
   The image is from one of Joanna Sheen's Christmas set of House Mouse stamps and I have coloured them using Promarkers. I added some Stickles around the candle flame. The sentiment was stamp using one of the stamps from Crafter's Companion sentimentals sets. I matted and layered  the finished square onto red mirri and then white card.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Without Words - preparing for Christmas
