House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Anything But A Card

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #10

That's the theme of today's House Mouse Challenge - Anything But A Card. Make anything you want (except for a card of course) that features at least one House Mouse or Friends image.

week we have some blog candy up for grabs. Woohoo!! To be in with a chance of winning the candy please make sure your entries are in by 8pm GMT Sunday October 26th. Click HERE for more info about this challenge, the blog candy and to see all the awesome creations by the other DT members.

For this challenge I decided to make
a calendar. Not just ANY calendar...this calendar is SUPER DUPER SPECIAL! Details HERE and at bottom of this post.

The House Mouse images are all stamped with Black VersaFine Ink and colored with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. I cut them out and attached with dimensionals. The bat wings I colored over with Orange Spica Glitter Pen. This HM image is from the Halloween Clear Set. Sentiment is from StudioG.

November I used HM Jump For Joy stamp. The leaves in the background and sentiment are from a Stampin'UP! set called Thoroughly Thankful. Leaves and lines around mouse have Stickles glitter glue.

For December I used a stamp from the HM Christmas Clear Set. The sentiment is from an A Muse clear set called Missy's Holiday. The ribbon on the gift is colored over with Red Spica Glitter Pen.

Did you notice I stamped a mousie footprint on the holidays? Cute huh :) When you flip up the previous month will see a place to write events or important notes. These calendars are way cool! Calendar base and pages are put together with my Bind-It-All.

You can get this A Muse calendar downloaded to you - as well as 2 other calendar choices. All versions of the A Muse Calendar include 16 months (Sept. 2008 - Dec. 2009). They also include a perpetual calendar which is great for keeping track of birthdays and anniversaries. The A Muse Calendar is a very fun project. Personalized calendars make great gifts! Best of all - 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the A Muse Calendars will benefit the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
