House Mouse Challenge and a Grand Prize!

Have you heard?  House Mouse and Friends has a brand new DT and Challenge Blog.  Last week they had their first blog hop and guess who won the Grand Prize?  Me!!!  (insert happy dance!)  I seriously uttered a big ole' squeal..and danced around the room.  The dog thought I was playing so we both had a good time!   There were lots of other winners too, so head on over to the  HM blog and see who the lucky ducks are.

Guess what?  You can win a House Mouse stamp this week, too!  Here are the details:  Simply create a card or project that is "Sweet" themed and uses at least one House Mouse & Friends Image then link it up on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge blog.

I used the sketch from Midnight Madness Sketch  MMSC57 on Priscilla Styles.  Not their usual style  but my image is big so not much room for lots of embellishments and guess what?  Priscilla offers two sketches..one more elaborate and one simple.  No reason not to play, right?
This also qualifies for the caardvarks June challenge to use wet/dry embossing, and the One Stop Craft Challenge #83 to make your own DP.

See that cute sentiment?  It's from The Cutting Cafe, of course.  It's from a really cool set called Sweet Stuff.  It's loaded with ...well, Sweet Stuff!  Popsicles, cake, lollipops, ice cream cones and no calories!!!
Thanks for stopping by my playground.  I'll be sure to show you what I won when it comes....oh somebody pinch me, would you?  Thanks to the team at House Mouse and Friends!!

Pin It!
