Welcome to the House Mouse and Friends Monday
 Challenge #94

I got to pick the theme this time and I chose:

Travel - Anything that gets you from one place to another.

This should be an easy challenge, because the House Mouse critters are
always on the move, walking, gliding, floating, skiiing, skating, sledding,
hopping, on motorcycles, flying through the air, in wagons, in cars, so many choices.

How cute is this mouse and his traveling companion!  I wanted to use the sentiment
"Are we there yet?", but it didn't fit in the space!

I colored with Copics.  The water lillies are from K & Company.  The papers are DCWV.
Pretty simple card, but love this pair!

The challenge runs through Sunday May 8th.

Our Guest Design Team members for May, Julia and Avril are with us again for this challenge.  We want to thank them for playing along beside us and for their great contributions to our challenges, it's been fun.

Check in at the challenge blog and see what the design team came up with for our Travel theme.
Then, ink up those House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper stamps and show us what you got.  We look forward to visiting you.

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

This is a beautiful card! May I ask what color green copics you have used? I'm having a hard time finding the right combination of greens for nature scenes! Thanks!

This is perfect! Love that image and the colors and the water lilies! Very pretty card! Thanks for having me play with you and your talented friends this month!

Sue said...

Kendra, for the frog outside the water I used YG06 Yellowish green and a yellow around the mouth.
for the frog inside the water, I used G24 Willow and G29 Pine tree green for the darker spots and blended. When I got done with the frog parts under the water, I went over him with BG10 Cool Shadow.

Hope this helps.
