House Mouse Challenge No. 50 ~ Gift Card Holder



YAY!!     We’re back … and better than ever!   (at least that’s how the saying goes!)    🙂

Happy House Mouse Monday!!!

Our challenge this week, which has been chosen by the super sweet and talented  Janneke of the HMDT, is Gift Card Holders.   I haven’t made too many of these, so I was having a bit of a hard time with this one.    I finally decided to use this totally adorable stamp featuring  Mr.Maxwell Mouse called Count Mouse!    




Pretty scary guy, huh?   I added a question mark after the sentiment Trick or Treat  so the recipient would see the answer on the inside  …




For those of you not in the USA, it’s a gift card from an awesome store called Target.   I think everyone likes this store!

So, I really hope you can join us for this challenge.   Be sure to hop over to the House Mouse Challenge blog  to see the always amazing projects from the HMDT ~  they always inspire me!  

Thanks for stopping by today.      Tomorrow, September 1st  (!)  we’ll have a brand new Copic Creations challenge ~ hope you can stop back.
