In fact, there are lots of mice and other rodents -- all hosting a tea party along with our own Peggy aka marilynprestonn for this week's tea party challenge!
But oh boy am I in trouble - while trying to put the star on the top of the tree, I have burst through the roof right into the forest of trees! Boy you can see forever up here - here come all the tea partiers! Hey - Lisa Lara - get your hands off that candy cane! PUT IT BACK!!! Oh - I'm too late for it- maybe there are more inside. I'll go see if there is some icing or something to patch the hole I've made - and maybe blame it on someone else. Hmmm -- who usually causes trouble?! We'll just have to wait and see!
Had to use this cute image Peggy sent me - seemed appropriate somehow! Coloured and added some gold sparkles to the star and then trimmed and matted with red and gold scalloped circles. Added a ribbon and a Happy Holidays charm! Thanks for taking a peek! Off to PARTY!!!

Gee oh Laurie, oh my gosh...yours looks much cuter than mine, your colouring is fabulous. LOL
What happened to Itty, or is that Tiny or Bitty...well, they are the Rodents, and they are bound to get in and out (being up up in the sky) of trouble. To address the troublemaker team...they will be coming along shortly. Charlene needs her beauty sleep...ooops, did I say Charlene, I meant Bertie of course.
Love your take on the teapot, the background is gorgeous. This is a sweet image isn't it! Love to see you at the party. Follow the peppermint trail, and you'll find candy canes and so much more!

Who usually causes trouble - no shortage of suspects there. I've done a lot of flat-icing on wedding cakes, so I should be able to plaster up the hole in the ceiling no problem. Better do it quickly, before too many more mice find their way in, or we might never get rid of them all again. Love your choice of DP to use with this image.

What a good little mousie making himself useful around the holidays. Usually that little rascal is in the bonbons sampling every single one or in the hot chocolate cups taking a dip. Sheesh! Once I have even seen this house mouse in the make-up trying on lipstick!!
Love your card, Laurie. It is a total holiday delight.
Have a very Merry Christmas :)

This is just too adorable, Laurie! Love your forest of trees background! Bertie is usually the trouble maker. You had better get that precious mouse off the tree. Bertie is flinging cats into the tree this year!
