Mr. Mouse on skis!

Just sharing a card that I madefor Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge (see here) which requires the use of toothpick. This is my 2nd entry. I had the idea of the Dancing Mouse skiing. After much consultation with my son David (who skis), I managed to make the mouse looking like he is skiiing ....hope you like his "ski poles" ! I am also lucky to capture this shot with our first snow for some cool effect!



On the personal note, I also SURVIVED hosting a party for 14 teenagers last night. What a civilized bunch! I definitely will do it again next year! There is a video of David's cello-playing (see here, if interested). Here are some pictures of my BIG pre-birthday dinner at the local Frech bistro with my family...





And the goodies for the teenager party...

Thanks for dropping by :)
