HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE AND BLOG HOP CANDY WINNER

Welcome to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. 

First off, what a great response we had to our blog hop for the New Year.
A lot of great prizes were given away and we saw some awesome entries when we were surfing your blogs. Thank you to everyone who took part, hopped along, and entered a card!

Our new challenge #87 theme is to use EMBOSSING on your card and was chosen by our talented teammate, Heather.



I used this Gruffie stamp, used Versafine Onyx to ink up and clear embossing powder. Colored with Copic Markers. Added Stickles to the snow hill.  The snowflake embossed background is a Cuttlebug folder.
Glitter paper blue ice cut with decorative scissors.  Blue gingham ribbon added to edge of embossed mat.
Tucked white embossed snowflake cut in half behind the main image.


Close up of this darling image.  Is he adorable or what!!! The stamped snowflakes are
from a Martha Stewart set.

I used a Cuttlebug snowflake die and folder to emboss this beautiful snowflake. I added white sharpie paint pen accents and lots of Diamond Stickles.

There is wonderful inspiration from my teammates on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge site.
Go check it out, you won't be disappointed. 

Our sponsor this week is Shelly, from One Stop Card Crafts who has generously offered a 10.00 voucher, including free postage worldwide to one lucky person, thanks Shelly

 Hope you have a chance to ink up a House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper and use some embossing to enter a card in our current challenge.  We can't wait to visit and see what you came up with.
