House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Crazy for Polka Dots

It's all about Polka Dots!! EVERYONE seems to love and use them. Embossing folders, patterned paper, stamps, ribbon, doodling, brads, buttons.......they are everywhere! So let's get stamping. Just make sure and use at least one House Mouse & Friends stamp on your project. For all the challenge details and to see all the awesome creations the Design Team has come up with click HERE.

My creation is a Mini Treat Bag (pattern from A Muse Art Stamps)

These little treat bags are so fun and easy to make. You can create 2 of them from 1 piece of 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock.

This House Mouse image is called Having A Ball and features Mudpie. Cute little Mudpie has brown fur and a little nick in his ear. He is really lazy and his two favorite activities are eating and sleeping.

I used COPIC markers to color this time. The puffs on the Santa Hat is White Applique sprinkled with glitter. Then I puffed it up with my heat gun.

Stamps - House-Mouse Designs Having A Ball; SU So Many Sayings
Paper - My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus "Sweet" Dots/Red Paper, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Ink - Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
Misc. - Copic Markers; Clear Glaze Pen (on the nose); Scor-Tape; Dimensionals; Sakura Clear Glaze Pen; Marvy Uchida Liquid Applique White; Ultra fine Crystal Glitter; Staedtler Triplus Fineliner 0.3 mm Black Pen; Misc Ribbon; Marvy Uchida Scalloped Circle Punch (blue), EK Success Circle Punch (1.75"); Fiskars Circle Hand Punch; Scor-Pal
