House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Hey all you House Mouse lovers...
Morning's time for another HM & Friends Monday Challenge!

House Mouse & Friends Challenge #72 - Something NEW
Christine came up with the idea for this challenge. Any creation/card to celebrate something NEW House/Job/Baby etc. Just make sure to use at least 1 House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie on your creation. Challenge details and design team samples can be found on the OFFICIAL House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog.

My card is for a New Baby. I designed my card from a Go-To Sketch layout by Mauren -- one of Paper Crafts Go-To Gals. It's on page 44 of the Paper Crafts Go-To Sketches Magazine. If you don't have this NEED to go get one. 66 Sketches and TONS of samples that will knock your socks off!!

Happy Hoppers are so cute. This one is called Baby Itty Bit. I colored it with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. "BABY" is spelled out of stickers from Creative Imaginations alpha sticker sheet. Been saving that for some SPECIAL project...and I guess this was the one! LOL! DP and buttons from American Crafts. I just picked up the new EK Success Zig Zag punch. That punch is awesome! I'll be using it a bunch.

You can see in the closeup how I added Baby's Breath Art Glitter to the top of the bottle. I also put glitter around the edge of the oval. Isn't this image sooooo cute!

Hope you can join us for this "NEW" challenge.
