I wonder how much hot chocolate is actually in that mug! Seems like it could be mostly marshmallows. Either way, those mice are having fun, as usual. Please visit the Stampendous Blog for more creations. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

This is such a fun image! You have colored it beautifully! Thanks for sharing at HMFMC. xx Happy New Year!
You’ve done such a beautiful job on this card! The little mice are too cute. I think the addition of the light pink really makes a difference. Thank you for mentioning that you used spray fixative to keep the chalk from brushing off. I’m fairly new and I almost threw away my chalk. It was so messy and didn’t stay in place. I guess I’ll need to unpack that! Lol Appreciate you sharing ?
