House Mouse Challenge ~ Photo Inspiration


Happy House Mouse Monday!   

Our challenge this week has been brought to us by my friend, the awesome Lisa Cook of the HMDT.   Lisa has provided us with this cute little cupcake mouse for our inspiration.   

Well, I took two main items from this photo ~  a mouse with a bow in her hair and a cupcake with turquoise frosting . . .  and came up with this action shot!  



I’ve used a combination of images for this one ~ Skipping Stones Design cupcake and sentiment, along with little Monica from the stamp called Mouse Bounce, and of course added a little bow to cute little Monica’s hair!     



Hope this made you smile!    As usual, the details for this challenge and this week’s prize, along with the always adorable creations from the House Mouse Design Team, can be found on the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog.

Thanks for your visit today – have a great week!
