Time for a new challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.  But before we get started with the new challenge, we need to give away the candy on my blog from challenge # 122 in celebration of the 1000th follower to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog



Congratulations to you, please email me at with your complete name and mailing address as it should appear on the mailing label.  Thanks to everyone who joined in the challenge and for a chance to win candy by several of our team mates.  Don't forget to check if you have won on another blog, or the main House Mouse and Friends Monday blog prizes.

On to Challenge #123.  The theme for this challenge has been chosen by our talented and expecting(yep, we're having a baby!) teammate, Paula.  She chose "Let's Get Fruity". 

I chose this darling little mouse sleeping on a bunch of grapes, so cute!

Stamp - House Mouse Grape Dreams HMGR1003
Papers - The paper studio and green coordination sanded
Ribbon to match from my stash
Colored with Copics
Butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch
Tiles I bought at a show, I love them and will hate when I used them up!
Sentiment part of a larger stamp
