House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge # 115

Welcome to the House Mouse and Friends
Monday Challenge # 115

The theme for our challenge is a photo inspiration
So, whatever inspires you from this photo is what we are looking for.

Photo Inspiration Ch 115#

And, was chosen by our fabulous teammate, Lorraine, also known as LOLS.
Lorraine is in England with he husband who has had surgery.  Hope you get to come home soon friend
and that Ray is recovering nicely!

I covered a white gift bag from the dollar store with paper from Michael's Reflection Collection.
The cupcake was made using brown corrugated paper for the bottom, a paper lace insert
and topped with a swirly frosting cutout of glitter paper.  I used a copic marker to make the lines of the swirls and to ink around the edges.  The sweet bear getting ready for the party tag is a Gruffie, and the mice who got into the cupcake is House Mouse Designs.

Our generous Sponsors this week are

Simon Says Stamp - A $25 gift for their online store
Sweet Stamp Shop - $ 10 gift for their online site

We are welcoming two new guest design team gals for the month of March, Suzi and Jane.
Along with the regular design team, there are some awesome examples for inspiration at the
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge  blog site, go take a look, and then ink up those House Mouse, Gruffies, or Happy Hopper stamps and join us for this photo inspiration challenge.  Can't wait to visit and see what you came up with!  This challenge runs through Saturday, March 24th 12 midnight, EST.

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

Those cute little bellies look like they are going to pop wide open any minute. I can feel their discomfort. Beautiful coloring. The bag and tag are simply gorgeous. Wishing they had my name on the tag. Ha Ha
