Well - I have hopped & had such an educational tour I can't wait to have a Mousie (or friend) to colour, didn't think my colouring was up to scratch (OUCH!) but will endeavour to throw caution to the wind & join the challenge. Love the variety of styles possible with these images. Thank you so much for organizing this - I've a lovely time & really enjoyed looking at all the individual creations.
