Here are those mice again!

I love House Mouse. Have I told you that before? These guys are so darn cute. I can't tell a Mudpie from a Whosie-whatsis, so I don't name the mice. I know they have names, but I guess I don't really care what their names are.
Colored with my Prismas, of course. I colored and then put Crystal Lacquer on the ice cube and the drip from the ice cube. I forget who makes this paper, but it rocks! I love the bright colors. When did paisley become popular again? Who decides what is popular?
You may have noticed these last three cards were photographed instead of scanned. No, I am not staging my cards, not trying to keep up with Kubby. It's just that when you color with pencils, the scanner washes the color out so badly, it looks like a second grader colored it. Photos are much better. Who knows? I may do all my cards like this. I kinda like it. I photograph it on my craft desk under an Ott light. Incandescent lights are no good for photographing cards.

Great coloring once again Debbie!
About taking pictures of your cards: they are fabulous! I have the same problem with scanning "Ecoline" cards, the colors are just horrible when I scan them. That's why I started taking pictures. But it takes as much time as the cardmaking itselve sometimes.
