House Mouse Monday Challenge #18, It's A Sketch!

Hello & welcome to Monday ... it is time for another House Mouse & Friends Challenge. It's already # 18 and its one for creating with the following sketch...
I turned this sketch sideways for my card. The image is a new House Mouse stamp from Stampabilities #HMUR1059, called "I Cane Count On You". The sentiment stamp is from SU.
The image is colored in with Marvy LePlume Markers and Glitter Gel markers. Arent these mice and candy cane images adorable?? The Shimmery Glittery Candy DP is brand new from MS. The candy dimensionals off to the side are from a Jolee's Boutique Winter Treats Collage set. The white BG panel was CB. Silver brads and ribbon finish off the card.

********************************************* Today we have heard the sad news of the sudden passing of one of our HM&F challenge participants. All of the team including myself wanted to do a tribute or something in honour of Joanne of {My} Adventures in Cardmaking.
As Carolyn Bounds of has said on her blog.........'Heaven has gained the sweetest and most loving of Angels. She spread love not only through her talent and cards, but through her beautiful blog posts and the comments she left behind. We will miss her greatly!!!'. Our thoughts and prayers are with Joanne's family and friends at this sad time. '***
My card for this week will be in memory of Joanne and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to join in.
