House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Are you ready for another HM & Friends Challenge?!

Gooooooooooood morning House Mouse Lovers!!!! It's Monday....and you know what that means!! Time for your Monday Morning Kick Start :) Let the fun begin.....

House Mouse & Friends Challenge #5 - Paper Piecing
This challenge is to use paper piecing on your project. As always, use at least 1 House Mouse, Happy Hoppers or Gruffies image on your creation. Click HERE to see all the samples from the Design Team.

For my card I pieced patterned paper for the baby bottle.


This Happy Hoppers stamp is called Sleepy Head and features Itty Bit. Adorable huh! I stamped on white cardstock with brown ink and colored with markers. Then I stamped again on my patterned paper and cut out the bottle (from under the rim down) and glued it down. On the tail and inside the ear I used a little shimmery white chalk for an added little touch :)



The card base is 5" x 5" Main image is die cut out and embossed then attached with dimensionals.
