It's Monday, and that means it's time for another challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.  this week our wonderful teammate, Sue Kment has chosen the theme for the challenge, which is Envelope Art.  Yep, decorate an envelope with a House Mouse, Gruffie, or Happy Hopper.

These little guys are enjoying a ride on a falling autumn leaf.  I used sticky notes to create a border around an envelope.  Then, sponged distress inks in fall colors around the edge randomly.  Stamped in black with a swirl stamp.  Colored this adorable stamp with Copics.  Used a die cut for the address space.

I made a border on the flap of the envie and attached an autumn leaf.

Matching card.

The set.

Hope you can join us at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge with a decorated envelope.
For some great inspiration, take a look at what our talented team has come up with.  This challenge runs from today, November 22 through December 5th. We would love to visit your blog and see what you came up with.

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