House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge

Let's Play Tag and Win a Prize!

Here we are again for another House Mouse & Friends Monday Morning Challenge. I call it my Monday Morning Kick Start :)

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #7 - Tags.
This weeks challenge is to use a Tag on your project. It can be any kind of tag...and any kind of creation...just use at least 1 House Mouse, Gruffies or Happy Hopper stamp on your project.
AND........(drum roll)........there's a prize!!! A big THANKS goes out to Helene from Alota Rubber Stamps for sponsoring us this week! 3 wonderful Halloween stamps!! WOOHOOO!!!

See challenge details, prize details and DT samples on the HM & Friends Blog HERE. Thanks Janneke for coming up with this weeks challenge.

On my card I used a metal rim tag. I sponged SU True Thyme ink on the tag to color it to match and around the edged of main image & patterned paper. For the card layout I used Sketch Challenge #195 over on Splitcoaststampers.

This House-Mouse stamp is called Amanda Shines. I think the sentiment tells it all -- "Too Cute." If you click on the pics to zoom in, you can see some sparkle in there. This is such a sweet image. I made sure to give Amanda a nice pink blush cheek :)

Lori, I absolutely love this one with the powder and brush. Too, too cute! Your coloring is so sweet, picking up the powder pink on the brush. I love this image. Your tag is perfect with it too. Great card for the challenge. I checked out Alota RS - they have some awesome cards and images. I'll have to add them to my blog.
