House mouse decoupage - smething else I've not seen and is noe on the wishlist.The image is very cute and I love the bscking you've given it. Once all our Christmas choccies have gone I've got to try and get rid of the fat they leave behind - no point starting till all the boxes are empty though. I have no will power at the moment.
