Welcome to the House Mouse and Friends
Monday Challenge #95

The challenge theme was picked by our talented teammate,
Sue Kment and it is MAY FLOWERS.

We also want to welcome two new Guest Design Team Members for the month of May, Esme, and Nancy.

I chose this adorable mouse sleeping on a bed of beautiful Lilac blooms.  The paper is a piece I have had forever, embossed lilacs on multi colored background.  This seemed like just the right time to cut into it.  I have made an easel card.  Circles cut with nestabilities dies form Spellbinders.  Colored with Copics.  Border punch is Martha Stewart.  Sentiment is Inkadinkado.  The leaves at the top were cut using a Sizzix die for a Lilac flower.

This must be the most heavenly scented bed ever!!

The prize this time for one randomly chosen winner is a $15 shopping spree at Simon Says Stamp.

The design team and guests have created some really pretty May Flower cards or projects.  Please head on over to the challenge site and get some inspiration, then ink up a House Mouse, Gruffie, or Happy Hopper using the theme and join us.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great Monday.  Until later.............
