Spots and Stripes Christmas mice

What a coincidence.....I'd just been sorting some SU christmas papers.....when I came across Papertake Weekly Challenge wanting spots and stripes......the papers were perfect......and so was the gorgeous layered sketch over on Stamp with Fun. These oh so cute xmas mice have been coloured with SU watercolour crayons.......the card and paper is all SU.......as are the stars and sentiment.......never made a card almost entirely with SU stuff before.
Have been tutoring a Knitting Workshop for parents and primary school pupils today......was a bit worried about how it would go.......but was great fun.......all very keen and now want to set up an after school knitting club........one dad came along and after 4 hours had just about got the hang of it.......though he was a bit concerned that his baby son 'will be about 20 by the time I've knitted this blanket for him'!!!!! Hopefully we'll get the after school club off the ground......as I've found a great knitted xmas tree for the kids to have a go at.

All your cards are beautiful, mine always look like my toddler has done them, so I tend not to bother! See you in "class" next week!

Lovely idea the knitting club, I loved knitting but can't do it anymore due to a clicking thing in my wrist which then seizes up. Love your card and that image is cute and coloured beautifully, fab papers.
Happy crafting

Lovely cards, although it makes me feel guilty that I haven't started making any yet. There's still time. Right?!
The knitting club sounds fun, you must have SO much patience! I'd really love to get back into my knitting but I'm not sure there is anywhere local that sells wools any more.
