Three little mice!

Had a card to make for 3 grand kids to give to their 86 year old great granny! I am so loving my cd from Thomas Kinkade and again my Crafters companion mice. I got my pin pricking going again, nearly had cramp after this lot!

The mice look so cute in front of the scene...but I'm afraid I wouldn't have the patience for the pricking.

WOW Pinky this is amazing all that beautiful pin pricking no wonder you have cramp but it has paid off, as it adds to the perfection of this card, I adore Thomas Kinkade works and have several of his pictures on my walls here at home, you have added those mice just right I love it so will the kids and their Granny.

Beautiful card Pinky, fab image from Thomas Kincade and I love the mice.
You have reminded me that I have pin pricking templates so will have to look them out. They have added a perfect finishing touch to your card.
