House Mouse Challenge No. 46 ~ NO COLORING!!!


Happy House Mouse Monday!


Yes, you read it correctly~ NO COLORING of your House Mouse image!    This really was the hardest challenge ever for me!!  I just HAD to add some Fired Brick red Stickles and a little bit of Peeled Paint  &  Black Soot Distress ink…..I couldn’t help myself  ~  Hopefully, I won’t be kicked off the DT!!               Smiley from



The dp used on this card is from my very favorite paper company – Graphic 45, and the Spellbinders Nestabilities dies used are the new Contemporary Heart Pendant  and a couple of Circles.   

Un-colored house mouse!!
