Hi friends, time for  Challenge #119 at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

Before we get started, just want to thank everyone who took part in our last challenge. Lots of beautiful cards/projects, and we loved checking out what you came up with!

Our challenge theme this time is HUMOR, and was so approprietly chosen by
our cheeky teammate, "Scoopy", aka Sue Cooper. She keeps us laughing with her antics!

This should be easy, as these mice, bears and bunnies are always up to something and it's usually funny.

See what I mean.  The simple act of Spring planting turns into
a comedy act by these two Gruffies!!

My card recipe:
Stamp - House Mouse Design
Die - Spellbinders
Flowers - Prima
Pearls - Kaiser
Butterfly die - Whinsy
Bazzill cardstock in tan and blue
Gingham Ribbon
Star Dust Stickles on flowers

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is:

Simon Says Stamp has graciously offered a $25 gift certificate to their online store.
And, they recently celebrated their 10 year birthday,  So happy birthday, and thank you for your continued support.

OK, so check out the inspiration at the challenge blog site by my very talented and funny teammates.  Lots of funny cards this challenge. Two new guest designers too.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Don't forget, you must use a House Mouse, Gruffie or Happy Hopper stamp to take part in our challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today.
