Well, I just had to try it... I did use a toilet paper roll for my "brush" (you can find the how-to instructions here in the thread ) and the paint on the olive texture green. ( I do not have many cheap acrylic paint color choices because, it tends to go bad on me before I can use it up) So, I also used this same color on some other sheets and decided it had the best contrast on the dark background. and that it looked a little like Christmas wreaths, so I started digging in my already colored Christmas images envelope and found this mouse and thought what the heck. Thanks for this challenge Judy & tfl. (it's also going in my 2018 Christmas cards quota for Oct because, this is a funny critter.)

This is so much fun! I really like how your background turned out and that House Mouse image is so cute. The sentiment made me laugh. (By the way, when I saw the challenge I went and fished a TP core out of my trash. I used to save them for school projects but haven't done so in a while.) Cute Christmas card!

Sweet card, Stacy. The darker background looks great and really does look like foliage. How long acrylics last must be a climate thing...maybe our higher humidity helps because some of mine are pretty old!!
