House Mouse Challenge No. 27 ~ Chipboard

Chipboard Cupcake

Chipboard Cupcake

Our challenge this week is Chipboard.  I had this rather LARGE chipboard cupcake and thought it would be cute to use with one of the HM images, but couldn’t resist using the Gruffie instead ~ his expression was too perfect.  

Maybe a cupcake will help

Patch, the Gruffie, is actually from the stamp called Tower of Presents ~ I just replaced the tower of presents with a towering cupcake!
