House Mouse Challeng No. 24 ~ Tall & Thin

Bunny Hop
Bunny Hop

Happy House Mouse Monday!!   Our challenge this week is “Tall & Thin”. 

Tall & Thin

Tall & Thin

I used one of the new Happy Hopper stamps for this one (now available at 7 Kids College Fund) ~ They sure look like they’re having a ball!!    I won’t even tell you how long I spent cutting out the bed frame ~ I really wanted it to be gold and just couldn’t figure out a way to do the gold embossing on the frame without it spreading over to the bed and bunnies , so out came the scissors.  
Hope you are able to join us this week.  Be sure to post your card on the House Mouse Challenge blog for all to see.   While you’re there, take a peek at the always creative cards by the Design Team.   Hope you have a great week and I hope you also …
Hopping good time

Adorable card, this stamp reminds me of No more monkeys jumping on the bed, must have read that book to my grandkids a hundred times, never got tired of it.

  5. ACK…. This is so stinkin cute. I have so wanted to get this image since I saw it. I just love your coloring (surprised lol) and the bed looks awesome! Totally cute!

  6. Mary, you are incredible! This is fabulous. What a gorgeous bed, and I can’t believe you cut it all out. The circles on the DP and matching bedspread and ribbon are a great touch. This is too, too cute! Those hoppers look like they’re having too much fun! You inspired me to color my Sara Kay and tough though it was with all the detail, I love how it turned out. I’m ready to do more. Happy Monday.
