House Mouse Challenge No. 26 ~ Mother’s Day

Happy House Mouse Monday!!  

Our challenge this week is Mother’s Day.   This was my very first card using a Guffies stamp ~ they are designed by Ellen Jareckie, who also designs the HM and HH stamps.  I think it’s just like coloring a really BIG mouse!  🙂   The name of this stamp is Wheelbarrow Ride, with Patch & Pebble.

Happy Mother's Day

I HAD to use the new Basic Grey Porcelain DP again!   I really love it.   The sentiment is computer generated.  The cute flower is a sticker from the BG Porcelain collection also.  I attached it with a pop dot and added a dew drop to the center.   



If you are able to join us this week, please be sure to upload your card or project to the House Mouse Challenge blog.   And, while you’re there, be sure to check out all the gorgeous creations by my fellow design team members.      Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!     🙂
