Crazy Amigos Challenge

I don't think I've ever participated in this challenge before, but as I was blurfing this morning I came across someone who had created something for today's challenge of "cozy." As my eyes then fell upon this as yet uncolored House Mouse image laying in a box of "stuff," I figured I would have to join in.
I colored the image with Copic markers (which in my opinion give new meaning to "Coloring for Dummies.") They make coloring everything so, so easy! I've even found that they are very compatible with Staz-On ink and glossy paper when stamping photo stamps.
The paper is from Basic Grey's Mistletoe and Pear. My Michael's had it 70 percent off because it was on Christmas clearance, so I was lucky enough to find the 12x12 pad for $7.
As yesterday was my birthday, DH gave me a gift card for Michael's. The best part of the gift though was that he came with me to Michael's while I looked around for just the right thing. He looked terribly uncomfortable, but he stuck with it.
