Hello all you happy House-Mouse lovers!!!

Are ya ready to have some fun today?  Well alllllrighty then....let's get this week started off with a BLOG HOP and a New Challenge! WOOHOO
  
House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #156 - Anything Goes With Twine
Create any project you like using "twine" along with at least one House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image. This is easy cheesy...so PLEASE play along with us! You can win PRIZES!!!

Go check out all the challenge details, see what our design team & guest designers have come up with using twine, AND get all the details for the BLOG HOP HERE.

Check out my fun creation!

I used black twine behind the button and along the top edge of the spider web border.  There's also twine that finished off the button holes.

Have ya tried the Chalkboard Stamping Technique? Sooo cool!!! EVERYONE is makin' awesome stuff with it! I FINALLY gave it shot. (You can google to find out how it's done.)
Turned out totally cool! I remember when I was a kid and I finally got colored chalk. I was one cool kid! ;) Soooo...for old time sake...I added some "colored chalk"on my design.

Okie dokie...are ya ready to get on with the Blog Hop?  Here's a list to help you find your way:
