House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge

Good Morning Bloggers!

I can't believe it's the Monday before Thanksgiving!!
I have a ton of things to get done for Turkey you? AND I'm teaching 2 classes this week - tomorrow and Saturday!'s gonna be a busy week! As usual....I'll probably be runnin' around like a turkey with it's head cut off!!!

ha ha ha ha ha!!!!

Now on to this weeks challenge...

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #83 - Envelopes. Sue Kment on our design team came up with this idea. Decorate an envelope with your House Mouse and Friends images. HOW FUN!!! We also have a prize again this week!

Click HERE to get all the challenge & prize details and see all the AMAZING envelope ideas the design team came up with.

Envelopes usually get handled pretty good as they make their way through the postal system. Then they are gonna get ripped open and probably tossed in the trash. Sooooo.....I decided to go with quick, clean and easy.

CUTE stuff huh!! I only used 3 Prismacolor Pencils and stamped with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. The address label is a standard size label from Avery and I stamped the frame on it from an A Muse Artstamps clear set called Classic Labels. PERFECT!

This next envelope is 4-bar size (3 1/2" x 5")

I hope ya have some time to create an envelope. The challenge goes for 2 if you are busy this week getting ready for your holiday still have the week after. No pressure or nuttin'

Hi Last minute Lori!!!
I do envy your ability to create the CAS look. This is stunning, I love the little mousie feet prints as well. Wish mine were as neat and tidy as yours and your mousie is brilliantly coloured.
