House Mouse Challenge 108

This is my first time playing in the House Mouse Challenge - but I do love all the House Mouse images and have been building up my collection slowly.  This is my latest purchase - entitled Autumn Cruise.  Is this little critter not cute?  In real life - I DO NOT like these little guys, but the stamps are the best.  The theme for challenge 108 (is something to be thankful for or a thank you).

Thanks so much for stopping by - I appreciate your time.  Later gator!
