Aww Rats!

This cute image caught my eye the other day so I scooped it up... I just love all things mousey and ratty! I know, some of you are cringing! But I have had both pet mice and rats.. rats are much more fun and highly intelligent and the gentlest things ever! really! Anyway, I also had this perfect charm to use with it. I decided to do something a bit out of the ordinary so made a different size card than usual and kept the colors darker. I like how it turned out although it was hard to get a good pic with my lighting in here.

YIKES!!! I'm so afraid of mice and rats, but I'll admit your card is cute. Great coloring job Carla. When you come to the states, I'll take you for a subway ride in NYC, we can see some up close! Your sentiment is too funny, love it.

Hee, hee, what a fun card! Everyone is harvesting around here and there are plenty of displaced rats around, I think I prefer mine coloured by Carla LOL!

Well, I'm ok with rats. I had a rat for a pet once and she was wonderful, so I do have a soft spot for the wee furry beasties. I just love the charm on here, and what a fun sentiment, too. Really cute card! Thanks for playing along with us at TSTR.

Who'd have thought a rat could be appealing eh? You certainly have made them so though in this great card.
You're certainly doing a good PR job for them!
Love the sentiment :-)


The card is adorable but I gotta say that the rat is a little to "real" looking for me lol.
