House Mouse Challenge ~ May Flowers

Happy House Mouse Monday!!

It’s been soooooooooooo long since I’ve been able to join in the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge;  So, I was especially excited to join in for today’s challenge ~ MAY FLOWERS.    Perfect for this time of year.    Of course, I had to choose one of my favorite flowers, in my very favorite color ~ Purple Lilacs!   

Mmmmmmmmmmm … I also LOVE the smell of lilacs ~ it certainly looks as though Mr. Gruffie is enjoying their lovely fragrance.   This stamp is called Lilac Bouquet from Stampabilities.   

He’s been colored with Copics, cut out and attached to the main panel with pop dots.   I stamped and colored a separate set of the lilacs and attached them with MORE pop dots for a little added dimension:

Be sure to hop over to the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog to take a peek at the gorgeous MAY FLOWER cards from the HM Design Team — you won’t be disappointed!

Thanks for visiting today.   I hope your week is off to a great start!

    When I was little there was a massive lilac tree in a garden that I passed on my way to school every day ( I was little so it could have been quite small IRL lol ) the lovely old man ( I thought he was ancient but was probably 50 !! ) used to give me a bumch to give to my teacher 🙂 ,oohh I just went on a walk down memory lane ,,,,:-)
