Let me share a little why I colored my mice like this. When my husband deployed for the first time in 2005, my kids were young. For fun we would go to our local pet store and check out all of the animals. That year while he was gone we ended up with a puppy, a kitten, and a fancy rat. Yes, I had lost a good portion of my mind by the time we had gotten all of that. Jerry, our fancy rat, is no longer with us. . .he didn't live long. However, the title of 'fancy rat' still makes me giggle. I used to tell people that Jerry was not your 'run of the mill' rat, like him being this color was any better. . .HE WAS STILL A RAT! He was a rat that would bite, and I cleaned his cage every other day, because he stunk. Needless to say, we will never get another rodent, lol.
My kids like this card, because they say it reminds them of Jerry. It's a much better way to have a mouse. . .in a digital image, LOL!

ps-loved your comment on my blog today. psst-i wouldn't say i luv the j.o.b. but oh well...tis life. would rather stay at home:)
LOL :) I love how you colored the mice!! Too cute. The only rodent we ever had was a gerbil... We also had a collie of very little brain at the time, and, well.... Let's just say that the collie was the only one who came out of it still breathing. Enough rodents for us! Although mice are cute. :) Love the layout and ribbon too!!ReplyDelete
