House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

That's Snow Sweet!

The mice finally made it out of the snow storm! LOL Let's get on to this weeks HM Challenge! yippee!!!

House Mouse & Friends Challenge #17 - Let it Snow
This weeks theme is Snow. Burrrr!!!! Anything that is about snow. As always...you need to include at least 1 House Mouse or Friends image on your project. For all the challenge details and to see some snow covered creations by the Design Team - click HERE.


Check it out!! I used a snowflake embossing folder on the Handsome Hunter base layer and patterned paper that has snowflakes. BAMM! There's my snow :) LOL

This stamp features Monica. She sure looks like she's enjoying that piece of candy! You can't tell...but I used a clear glaze pen on the colored stripes of the candies. I also used a Clear Spica Glitter pen on the snowflakes of the patterned paper. The red layers is the other side of the patterned paper. Don't ya just LUV those double-sided papers!!
The layout for this card is from Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge #204. Details HERE.

Again...I MUST MUST MUST say how AWESOME that A Muse Dye ink is! Last week's HM image was a larger wood mounted -- I said how wonderful this ink worked with it. (see here) The stamp for this card is a clear stamp -- and I got the same PERFECT results! I only inked up and stamped 1 time folks!! That's total excitement right there! Crisp image details -- dried fast -- no smearing when coloring. HTH!! The sentiment stamp is also from amuse. Perfect for this image!

I love your card Lori! This is one of my favorite Christmas images...you really brought her to life! :) AND, thanks soooo much for the tip about the Amuse ink. I actually found some in Madison and have been using it on all my cards. I love, love, love it! It's so nice to be able to use one stamp pad for everything! Thank you!

I have this house mouse .. and now I need the mint stamp to go with it, lol! How incredibly sweet is this?!?! I love it Lori! Great colors and the LO is beautiful. I will have to make myself figure out SCS more. I got into PCP and found it easier to get around .. but SCS still has great challenges and things. Heck, I cant even figure out how to see my own profile pg there! lol! Sheesh! I love how clean and crisp your card looks. I will also remember what you said about amuse inks. I was going to ask everyone about what inks they like best :o) now I just need adhesive advise. lol. Have a great day. I am hushing now. ((can you tell I have not had my coffee yet and have the morning rambles?!?!)) :o)
