House Mouse and Friends Blog Hop and New Challenge!!!

THIS POST WILL REMAIN AT THE TOP TILL THE BLOG HOP IS OVER - PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS)

Hiya everyone,

This is my 2nd GDT card for the House Mouse and Friends monday challenge before I officially join as a normal DT member.  Soooo excited as I love House Mouse images so much.  We are also holding a blog hop in conjunction with the latest challenge too - the theme this time set by Christine which is "Love - must have more than one heart"

Your creation must contain a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies image (decoupage is fine)


My card has been made with this fab stamp set from Joanna Sheen which is called "Sew happy" which you can get here.   I have coloured my image with my promarkers and the papers are from a fab Cosmo cricket paper stack called "Material girl" which was one of my prizes for winning the cardmaker of the year competition in 2010.



Anyway, back to the blog hop - there are lots of prizes up for grabs from our many generous sponsors.  To qualify for any of the prizes that are available you must join in with the current challenge and comment on each of the House Mouse and Friends DT blogs.

If you have arrived from Natascha's blog then you are hopping in the right direction - if not you should pop to the House Mouse and Friends Challenge Blog to start at the beginning!

From here, you need to hop along to Stacy's blog here.

If you get a little lost along the way here is a list of all the DT blogs that you should visit and comment on:-


Here are a sneaky peak of some of the prizes up for grabs!!!

 










 A massive thanks to our many sponsors of this challenge:-


I will enter this challenge into the Simon says stamp - Animal antics challenge too

Thanks for hop, hop, hopping along with us!

  23. Hi Paula,
    What lovely papers you have used on this beautiful card today. I think this has to be one of my favourites alongside the Lemon yellow you did one for the Cardmaker of the Year competition (I still think that card is gorgeous and I haven't seen it since its publication).
    So pleased you are looking forward to your DT, I think you will have some fun with them.
    All the best Linda x
