It's time for your Monday Morning Kick Start!

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #2

It's time for a Monday Morning Kick Start with House-Mouse & Friends! I have to tell you something about that HM stamp I have pictured on here with the mouse in the coffee cup. I don't have that stamp! How sad is THAT! I really need to get it ordered - cause it's one I have to have! LOL. And it's really called "Monday Morning Kick Start." Yep..I want that stamp and about 100 others!

Did you see all of last weeks awesome creations? Check
them out HERE.

Now on with HM & Friends Monday Challenge #2:
This weeks challenge -- Lace it up!! Use lace on your project. Any kind of lace - real lace, paper lace, shoe lace, whatever :) Just have fun! Visit the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog for all the details and check out the creations from the design team.

For my card I used some real lace. I actually had some in my sewing supplies! I also made a lace looking strip from pink vellum using a Martha Stewart Punch. This House-Mouse stamp is called "Twinkle Toes" and features Amanda. Last week I stamped Amanda too. See that card HERE.

This is such a sweet image. I love her little round belly. I gave her little tutu some sparkle with Stickles. One word to describe her..."Adorable" All the paper I used except for the vellum is from Stampin'UP! Coloring is done with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. Main image layer is popped up on dimensionals.

I hope you find time to play with us! Make sure to post your creations and leave a comment on the HM & Friends Challenge Blog so everyone can see.

This is off the hook! lol. Ok, I don't know what that means, but I always hear people saying it on tv when something is done really well. :)

Point being, I love your card! It's so sweet with the little tutu and rhinestones.

I suppose I could have just said that to begin with, but what fun would that be?
