Here Comes Summer!

June 21st is officially the 1st Day of Summer. Can you guess what our House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge is today?

House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #98 - Here Comes Summer!
Create a project using "Summer" as your theme. Anything goes as long as you use at least 1 House Mouse or Friends image on your creations. Get all the challenge & prize details on the HM & Friends Blog HERE.

The stamp is called Mellow Melon and features Maxwell, Mudpie, Amanda & Monica. 4 adorable mice...enjoying a summer day eating some juicy watermelon. This stamp is BIG! It measures 5.5" x 4.25" THAT'S the size of a standard A2 card! My card base is 6" x 5.5"

This time I colored with Copic markers. Shocker....I KNOW!

Some fun texture with Flower Soft on the ground and clear glaze pen on the seeds.

I added glitter on the munched out part of the watermelon. Yep...had to get some glitter in there somewhere!

Is that some Summer cuteness or WHAT?!!!
