Yay Mickey

What a hoot! The Diva's challenge #95 is kindly brought to us by Courtney from Texas who reminds us of Mickey Mouse's debut way back on the 18th of November 1928 in the animated short film "Steamboat Willie".
It really is a classic and such a giggle, you can view the film on The Diva's blog here .            
During the week I have been playing with Carla's Pop-Cloud and hoping I could in some way incorporate this delightful tangle in this weeks challenge. When Steamboat Willie's whistles blew clouds of steam puffed with inspiration!
Thanks Courtney and Carla it was a blast from the past with a toot and a hoot!!

  8. Love these whistles, they look so happy! Popcloud works great as puffs of steam too. And as always I love your little squiggly mushroom-type plants (are they a tangle btw, if so what are they called?). - Aliyaran

  9. What a wonderful little scene. Love the whistles, the steam clouds, the border and your little fauna growing. I've seen that somewhere before but don't know what it's called.
