House Mouse Challenge ~ Sweets



Happy House Mouse Monday!!  

Ugh.  It’s Monday already!!??  We had a very busy weekend and Monday mornings are always so much harder after that!    But seeing all the little mice friends on the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge blog certainly can help ease into the day a little!   

Our challenge this week is Sweets!    There seem to be LOTS of HM images that include sweet treats, so this should be an easy challenge.   This stamp is called Sweet Relief.   I used this photo of the candy called DOTS as my color inspiration . . .


And here’s the full card



The DP is from the October Afternoon Ducks in a Row 8×8 paper pad.   The mice were colored with Copics and the brads are from my stash …   and, yes, the bow is REAL dental floss!    lol

You may recall that we had a blog hop for our last House Mouse challenge, which included LOTS of prizes!     I’m happy to say I have some “hidden” blog candy too!    My prize is these two HM stamps:

You Cane Light the Way


Everything is Coming up Roses

 And the winner, picked using is . . .

I hope you’ll pop over to the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog to see all the adorable SWEET mice creations from the very talented HMDT and get lots of inspiration to join us for this challenge!

Special thanks to everyone for your VERY sweet comments from our blog hop.   It was sooo nice to see lots of new faces joining our House Mouse Hop.   We hope you will all join us again.   Thanks for dropping by today ~ I hope you have a great week!
