Hello, it's time for another House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, #98.  Our Theme this time, thanks for our talented teammate, Christine, is "Here comes Summer"   

I chose this very cute mice eating watermelon stamp!  What is better on a hot summer day than a cold slice of ripe watermelon!

I colored with Copics, corners are from a punch by PaperShapers.  Added some Martha Stewart half round baubles to the corners.
Closeup of image.  I sponged the sky background.

Hope you get a chance to join us for our "Here comes Summer Challenge".
We are being sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads, and the prize is 3 Digis to the winner of our random drawing at the end of the challenge. Entries will be accepted through Sunday July 3rd.

We'd love to come see what you have created with a House Mouse, Gruffie bear, or Happy Hopper Bunny.  Take a looks at the design team samples at the House Mouse blog site for some inspiration, then get stamping!

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