Three Singing Christmas Mice

These little guys are not to be confused with my singing tenors who also numbered three. This is Larry, Harry, ( should be Hairy), and Schmow, and they are getting ready for the big event this Friday night. I'm presenting them at a dinner party for foster kids and they will be part of some cards the kids will make for their foster parents and or biological parents. I was blown away when I was told I would handle the craft table for card making that would host 60-80 kids. I said to myself....take it easy, you can and you will do this. Yeah right! Anyway, I am making some simple cards for them to follow and this is one of them. Kind of patriotic in colors but they can color the little guys any way they want. This mice stamp or should I say mouse stamp is one I got in a dollar bin many moons ago , and is made by Westwater Expressions ( out of China) and the little snowflake is from Stampendous. Just used my water colored pencils and the snowflake was done with denium colored ink. I'll probably change up the color scheme but it's a start. I have cut for 20 cards so far and only another 60 or so to go. Where's the Xanax???? After this I won't be laid back, I'll be konked out.

You are something else! Those kids are going to have a blast with you! And if there is anyone that I would pick to handle 60-80 kids, it would be you. And hey, if it does go nuts, you can always get home and uncork the bottle! LOL Have fun! You are going to be great! Best, Curt
