HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #104

It's our third anniversary at the House Mouse and Friends Monday ChallengeAnd we are celebrating!  Our super talented teammate, Natascha has chosen the theme "Birthday" (with flowers optional).

We are having a blog hop for prizes.  There are prizes on the main blog and some of the gals have prizes on offer on their individual blogs.

What's a birthday without cake.  This little Gruffie is already digging in.
The cake is soft yellow flower soft.


I made a shaped card (Party Hat).  Papers are Martha Stewart along with the border punch.
Shiny white ribbon used for the top of the hat.  The blue buttons are also Martha Stewart.
Colored with Copic Markers. Used Star Dust Stickles on the background ribbons and the flowers on the cake plate.  Sponged blue ink around the edges of the stamped image.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, who has generously offered a $25 Gift Card to their online store.

AND

House Mouse Designs, had generously offered a $25 Gift Card to their online sotre.

AND
Pizzazz Aplenty, who has generously offered a $10.00 gift package of embellishments.

I'm offering a  prize of a House Mouse Stamp,  Poppy Cot,  and assorted goodies from Pizzazz
Aplenty




And, more prizes scattered in our design team lineup.  Lots of good stuff up for grabs!

What do you have to do to be in to win the prizes?  Just enter a card in our Birthday Challenge to celebrate 3 years for our House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. Leave a comment on the main House Mouse Challenge Blog And at each of the Design team members, past and present listed above.  Then winners for the various prizes will be chosen by Random.org.  For my prize, I would hope you follow me as I love sending one of my cherished followers a package, but it is not a requirement.

Hope you can join our party.  Take a look at the design team cards for inspiration, then ink up those stamps and join us.  Vicki has joined our team permanently, and we welcome her with open arms, so glad to have her with us.

Here's a list of how the hop will proceed:
