House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

I'm back!
We had a great time on vacation last week. LOTS of fun at the Disney Parks. I'll find a couple pics and share more on that later. For now...it's House Mouse time!! Nothin' like getting right back to stamping :)

House Mouse & Friends Challenge #36 - Gate Fold Card
This weeks challenge is Janneke's idea. Create a card with a Gate Fold. Any size is fine...just make sure to use at least 1 House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image on your creation. To see examples by the design deam - click HERE.

This House Mouse stamp is called Twinkle Toes and features Amanda. When I stamp with this image...I always think of pink and glitter :) Hummm...wonder why? LOL! Amanda is so sweet and well behaved...just like me! hee hee hee Best of all...she is full of creative energy & ideas.



My card is a standard gate fold. Totally easy to create with the Scor-Pal. 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock -- put on the Scor-Pal with longer side across top. Score at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8". The Scor-Pal has these measurements marked with a small dot - so it's super simple to find.



Who is your favorite Mouse? Which of the Mice are you more like? If you're not sure - meet the mice HERE -- then decide :)
