Baby Boy House Mouse

My baby card stash is running low so it seemed the perfect reason to play with some of my favorite mice. I have a stash of images I've stamped out and just need to color. I keep them (and my Copics) next to my favorite TV viewing spot. It can be tricky with the help of my cat herd, but I can get several images colored up during a movie and don't feel quite as guilty for staring at the black box for a few hours. Some times I only get one image done, or partially colored, as the kitty herd seems to take turns jumping up for snuggles. I could push them aside, but petting them always calms me and makes me feel loved. Plus I can usually work in a slight brushing (until they run away). Six cats in a house makes for lots of flying fur!
