A mother is...

Love

Good Morning all you House Mouse Fans!! The HM & Friends DT has some AWESOME creations to share with ya!! My jaw dropped to the floor when I saw all these beautiful goodies!!

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #26 - Mothers (Day)
Mothers Day is just around the corner in the UK (don't ask me when...I don't know! LOL) so this weeks challenge is to make something for a mother - or mother related. Just make sure to have at least 1 HM image on your creations. For all the challenge details click HERE.

This stamp is called Bathing Babies - featuring Amanda, Monica & Friends. Since I have 5 kids...I figured this image worked for me :) Letting 5 little ones take a bath all at once...now that there's love I tell ya! LOL

I've been wanting to create something with Kraft cardstock...and this image worked great! It's really fun using light colored pencils...especially white...on darker cs. Then I used white shimmer chalk all around the outside of the image...and anywhere there was water or bubbles. AND...the bubbles have Crystal Glaze on them. Looks really fun IRL!

The sentiments are rub-ons & I hand doodled around the white layers. Main image & sentiment both popped up on dimensionals. Cardbase is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Have a "stampin' fun" week!! YEAAAAYAAA ;)

So cute, Lori!!! My mom would love this card--although I'm sure she's glad she only had two kids and not a full clan like that mama mouse. Great job! So cute!

Cute card! Love that image and it looks really great on the kraft paper! That image is so cute and funny! Love the dew drops on your card. They are the perfect embellishment because they look like waterdrops.

Hugs,
Larissa

cute! This looks like my life every day!! Maybe not all the kids in the tub at once (the girls maybe), but trying to get the kids to do something when they all want to go in different directions!
