House-Mouse and Friends 200th Challenge - Blog Candy Party

I can't believe it! We are celebrating our 200th House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge! Isn't that amazing?! Our blog started back in August of 2008! I am honored not only to be part of this wonderful team, but to have been on this team since the very beginning.  You can see my very first post HERE. I've come a looooog way in my coloring skills since then!

To celebrate, we are having a Blog Candy Party. The prizes are hidden throughout the design teams blogs. We want to spread the LOVE amongst all of our awesome players worldwide, so we will need your help to sort the yummy CANDY. Please help us by adding the NAME of the Country in which you live in next to your own name, on your challenge entry. To be entered for a chance to win, simply leave comments on the design teams blogs, follow our challenge blog and enter a project into this challenge.

***Please read ALL the details on how to enter for the blog candy over on the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog.


And now for our 200th Challenge:  Color Theme: Yellow, Blue and White
Create anything using this fun colour combo on your design. Or, simply go with the alternate option of *ANYTHING GOES*! Either way you choose, just have fun and play along using stamps, CD collections and, or, decoupage by HMD.

I made this card to celebrate.

Isn't that Gruffie Bear so cute?! He is colored with markers.


Don't forget to leave a comment here on my blog to be entered for the blog candy.

Happy Celebrating!
