Here comes the Sun!

Hey bloggers...it's House-Mouse Monday and things are heatin' up!!!  

Our challenge theme is "Here Come the Sun!"

Get all the details on the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog HERE. And as always...the design team made some SMOKIN' samples!

My friend America sent me this image to color. (THANK YOU GF!)  The sentiment is from an Our Craft Lounge stamp set called Sunshine Cheer.


Isn't it soooo CUTE!

I colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. Probably my favorite part was adding the glaze and glitter accents.  Gotta share it with you ZOOMED IN!

 Yep...my likey Mikey!  Stuff on the inside too :)


Our challenge goes for 2 weeks. PLENTY of time to git-r-done!
Don't forget to share your creations with us on the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Blog

I can almost feel a squirt of lemon coming my way. You really made that lemon is real. I'm glad you did the closeup.

Lori, your coloring is so fabulous and realistic. I think I can almost taste lemon juice and feel some of the refreshing juice! Perfectly darling card!

Cheers!
