House-Mouse Blog Hop of Love

 Hellooooooooooooooooo House-Mouse lovers!!! We're havin' a BLOG HOP!
The challenge is to create a Love Theme Project using more than 1 heart.  That's it!  BUT...if you wanna join the blog hop AND have a chance to win some awesome prizes....you have a few other rules to follow.  Get all the challenge & hop details on the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog HERE.

BTW - I have a prize to give away too!!! It's a surprise...and it's something crafty!
 

 If you're doing the hop...you should have arrived at my blog from Kate's blog.

Here's my Love card...


My favorite way to color House-Mouse images is with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol. That is what I teach in my classes. Isn't it wonderful how they turn out!  I also cut a portion of the flowers out and popped them up.  The sentiment is embossed.The name of this stamp is called "I give you my heart"

If you want to REALLY get a closer look, click on this pic.

About once a month I teach a House-Mouse class at my local stamp store - Stamp Works. This card is one of the designs from my class. I could color these cute little critters ALL DAY LONG!

Your next stop on the Blog Hop is Lorraine

HAVE FUN!!!

Holy awesome cards batman!!! I'm taken by the way you poped the petals on the tulips and I just adore this card! Seriously, I'd love your candy, but even more i'd love to fly to wherever you live and just be a fly on the craft room wall! hahahah I live in ID so I won't be in any of your classes any time soon, so I'll just keep checking back to see your fantastic cards! Great coloring, I too love my Prismacolors! Yeay!!!

Lorraine; your card is wonderful! I love the colours you used and how you "poped" the petals on the flowers - smarty pants! Thanks for a chance to win your "surprise" candy!

Donna Hanley said...

Lorraine, what a beautiful job you have done with this image. I bounce back and forth between Copis and Prisma Pencils, but I really do need more practice with both. Your attention to detail is fabulous. Your flowers look like I could put my nose to the screen and smell them. So beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
