YOU'RE SO SWEET HM&F #71 CHALLENGE

This is the outside of the easel card I made for our latest Challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

Hi, it's Monday and today is a new House Mouse and Friends challenge. This challenges theme is "Sweets"
I've made an easel card using papers from the DCWV Sweet Stack. Border punches from Martha Stewart. The "SWEET" little Happy Hoppers stamp was stamped twice and cut out. The ice cream cone in the center was cut with the cricut. I ran the pieces through embossing folders. The cone portion was swiped with a brown ink pad and the ice cream portion was highlighted with a white gel pen. The Your Sweet round stamp is form Michaels dollar bin. I placed a button in the center and tied a bow through the button holes. For the inside, I used a yellow round doily and stamped the circle with a Stampabilities House Mouse saying. I cut the ice cream cones from the designer paper. and added a strip of ribbon. Glittered the ice cream cones the bunnies are holding to finish.

This was a fun card to make. Hope you have time to join us this challenge which runs through Sunday, June 20th. Please stop over to the House Mouse and Friends Blog to see the samples from my teammates for so much more inspiration, you won't be disappointed.

Simon Says Stamp has offered a House Mouse stamp of your choice to the winner among entrants to challenge #71. Thanks Simon Says Stamp!!!

Thanks for stopping by. Until later.........

This makes me feel giggly!! Such sweetness here Sue, the darling imagery and the yummy cream theme, how perfect and fun!! We have a neighborhood ice cream man who comes down the road every day around 5:30, my son RUNS to the front door and throws his whole body against the glass screen door, hands raised high above his head, face pressed straight into the glass, as he watches excitedly, I will come back to show him this tomorrow when he's up and see what he does to the computer screen, hahaha!! Hope you are keeping dry dear friend.
