Welcome to the new House Mouse and Friends Monday
Challenge #121. 

The theme for this challenge was chosen by our talented and super creative, Sue Kment,
and she chose  "HERE COMES THE SUN"

There are so many stamps that depict the House Mouse and their friends doing fun summer things, this should be easy peasy.

I've made an accordion card. There are four of the Happy Hoppers enjoying fun in the sun.
From front to back, Seed Shooter HMG1014, Great Catch HMG1011, Bunny Cruise HMLR1052,
Bunny in Paradise HMOR1122.

Here is a side view of the card.  I matted each image with glitter paper in assorted colors.
The sun on the front with the sentiment (a dollar stamp from Michael's) is a punch.
Flowers were cut from some glitter card stock.  Butterfly is K & Company.

Our generous sponsor this week is:


We would love to have you join the fun and we also love to visit and see what everyone comes up with.  You must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image.

We want to thank Jill and Jocelyn for joining us in May on the design team as guests.  They have done a great job and have brought some amazing cards to the challenges.  Thanks ladies, it has been a pleasure.

We welcome Carole and Victoria for the month of June as guest designers.  Pop in at the
House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog for their creative cards, and see what the
design team has come up with for the Here Comes The Sun Challenge.

And Lastly, don't forget, you can upload your card/project to the House Mouse Hand Made by Me Gallery.

I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
