House Mouse Challenge ~ Embossing

Happy House Mouse Monday … evening!


Phew!   Sorry this is so late today.   It was a crazy weekend and I wasn’t able to get this card finished until just today.  

Our challenge this week at the House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge blog is EMBOSSING … any kind of embossing – Easy Peasy!  

This challenge has been brought to us by my friend, the SUPER talented and very dear Heather of the HMDT.   

Since I was already behind, I went with some pre-embossed cardstock I had picked up at a local scrapbook store, which really saved some time.   I like that! 



What a perfect place for a little nap!    This really is one of my favorite HM stamps ~ Sleeping Under Flowers.   He sure looks comfy – I’d love to be in his place right now!

Be sure to take a peek at the House Mouse challenge blog to see all the gorgeous embossed cuties from the HMDT … you’ll definitely be inspired to join us. 

Thanks for your visit today!   Hope you’re keeping dry and warm – we’ve received quite a bit of snow today and it’s still coming down … blech!    🙂

  9. Hi Mary
    Thank you for your kind words regarding my valentine card with the bunny with the heart. The paper is My Minds Eye State of Heart. I think it came out this past summer. I usually post what papers I use, but since the post was for stamp and create and Lacey doesn’t carry it.
    Hope this helps
