HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE AND BLOG HOP

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

WELCOME TO CHALLENGE #86 - NEW BEGINNINGS

AND

OUR NEW BEGINNINGS BLOG HOP

Since it is a brand new year, we have decided to add a Guest Design Team Member
each month, to participate in our 2 challenges for that month!

For our very first GDT member, Tracy was chosen!
Congrats, Tracy, and welcome aboard for the month of January 2011.

Curt O'Brien, our former teamie,  has also agreed to rejoin us for our Blog Hop!  Good to have you back for this challenge, Curt.

As you participate in the blog hop, there will be hidden candy along the way on several of the design team member's blogs.  Here is my candy.

All you have to do for a chance to win these House Mouse, Gruffie, and Happy Hopper stamps is:

1.  Follow me if you don't already
2.  Leave a comment on this post
3. Leave a comment on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #86 Post

There are several sponsors giving some fabulous prizes on the House Mouse blog site for this blog hop.


You should start the "HOP" at the House Mouse Blog site where you will find a list of the participating sites.
While you're there, check out the fantastic design team cards and get inspired to take part in the challenge!



If your coming from Sue C's Blog, your in the right place.


For my card for challenge #86, New Beginnings, I chose a baby card.



What better new beginning is there than a new baby?
And this little guy is getting a big assist from two really cute House Mouse pals!
I colored with Copics, the tag is from Stampin Up. Card stock is by Me and My Big Ideas, Baby Boy Stack.  Red pearls on corners by Elements.  Punched border is Martha Stewart.

Aww, bless their little hearts!

Baby bottle charm a gift, thanks America!

OK, so let's get HOPPIN!!
Your next stop on the hop is Sue K's Blog

 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Good luck with the prizes.  Until later..............

Brilliant card -I just sat & looked at all the detail - decided I'd Follow too for I scrolled down your earlier posts & that blue brayered resist is such a stunner. I've started working with those too & it's so good to see someone else working in different styles. I've not any Mousies yet but they're on my list so I'm going through the hop carefully & learning lots on the way.
Thanks for such an educational visit.
