House Mouse Challenge No. 18 ~ A Sketch & Some Very Sad News

Before I talk about our challenge this week, I need to say a few words about a very dear blogging friend who passed away unexpectedly on Friday.  Joanne Johnson  She was an avid follower of the HM Challenge and participated regularly;  Joanne ALWAYS had the nicest comments on sooo many cards.  My thoughts and prayers go out to her family.  Carolyn Bounds said it perfectly “Heaven has a new Angel“!   I personally know that it’s not easy to lose someone you love, but to lose them during the holidays seems to be so much harder.  Please keep this family in your prayers.


This week we have a Sketch challenge sponsored by Judy of our design team.  She has blog candy for one lucky participant…the details can be found on either the House Mouse Challenge blog at or on Judy’s blog at

Here is the Sketch provided by Judy:


HM Challenge No. 18

Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get the sentiment to fit into a circle:  Sooooo, I broke the rules!!  As they say ~ my bad!
This was a fun sketch to work on.  The image is called Silent Mice, featuring Amanda and Mudpie, colored with Copics and some Shimmerz paint added to the top layer of the petals, in Angels Wings.
