Summer Refreshments for 1,000 Followers

Over at House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog we're SOOOO EXCITED!

We now have OVER 1,000 FOLLOWERS!  GIT-R-DONE!!!
You stampers are AWESOME!  Thank you so much!!!

To celebrate, we have LOTS of prizes up for grabs!  In addition to our fantastic prizes being offered on the blog by our GREAT sponsors...several of the design team members have goodies to give away too!!!! YEAH BABY!

Our challenge:  Liquid Refreshments for Hot Summer Days

 This challenge is SURE to cool you off.  I'm up for anything refreshing, since it's supposed to be 113 in Gilbert today!  Are you ready to cool off?  Go grab a cold drink & House-Mouse stamps and get busy :)  All the details for the challenge and prizes are over at the HM&Friends Blog.



This mouse is Jumpin for Joy!  LOL!  That's actually the name of the stamp ;)  The mug & sentiment stamps are from A Muse Studio - Hey, Man! set.  I added Liquid Applique to puff up the foam on top and then added a little glitter to make is sparkle.  Glaze pen on the glass and Crystal Lacquer on the drips.



Mouse and mug are colored with Prismacolor Pencils & Gamsol.  Shading and dots are done with Copic Markers. I am jumpin for joy myself about how this one turned out.


Are you ready to celebrate with us?  Remember, you have 2 weeks to join the fun.  Make sure to visit all the design team blogs to see who is giving away goodies!  Speaking of goodies...I have some up for grabs!!! Just leave a comment on this blog post by Saturday June 30th Midnight EST to be entered. 
Have a refreshing day!
