House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Yummy Pumpkin Pie and a Prize!

We have another fun challenge for you over on the House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog. This week there's a prize from House Mouse
$25 to spend at House-Mouse.com!!
America sent all the DT members a kit to produce a card from. We could use our own tools along with the kit. So how are you going to do this challenge? Just try and reproduce the kit and make a card. It doesn't need to be exactly the same. And even if you only have a few items that works to. Just make something using similar items. For all the challenge details, design team cards and prize info click HERE.

Here's what was in the kit.........
(In the little baggie is crystal rhinstones, white pearls, silver cording and charms)

My creation...


Isn't this image too stinkin' cute!! I don't have it...so it was an extra special treat to create something with it. (Thanks America! btw - notice I used the mouse charm...JUST for YOU!) I used the reverse side of the dotted patterned paper. (I just wasn't into dots that day.) The pearls were white...so I colored them with a Copic marker. Coloring is done with colored pencils & oms. The pie has just a touch of glitter on top...and I added Clear Glaze Pen to their nose & eyes :)



Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Items I used in addition to the kit contents:
Colorbox Chalk Amber Clay & Chestnut Roan; Prismacolor Pencils 914, 927, 940, 941, 945, 946, 947, 949, 997, 1002, 1032, 1033, 1051, 1052, 1054, 1082, 1092; Gamsol OMS; Blending Stumps; Copic Marker; Art Glitter - Mustard; Sakura Quickie Glue Pen; Sakura Clear Glaze Pen; Scor-Bug and Scor-Pal; EK Success Large Corner Rounder; Dimensional Foam Tape
