Time for a new challenge at the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge.

This time our theme has been chosen by our talented teamie (this girl can color!), Heather.

Heather chose the theme "The Olympics"
What a wonderful job London did with the opening ceremonies.  We have been
watching the games every night too. 

Here is our theme!

I used paper from the bo bunny patriotic stack.
The images are from portions of five different stamps.
punched, colored with Copics and inserted into circles to
represent the Olympic Rings.

This is the inside of the easel card.  The image is HMUR1033 Glorious Feeling.
Embossing folder is Cuddlebug, Stars.

So, as  you can see, even the mice and a happy hopper are enjoying
 the Olympics.

Our generous  Sponsors for this challenge are:

House Mouse Designs - A $25 gift certificate for their online store.


Janet of Pink Gem Designs - has offered a Digi Kit of her BEST OF BRITISH

The design team including Donna and Ginny,  our current GDT Members have come up with some
AWESOME cards for our Olympic Challenge.  Head on over to the blog site and have a look!

The challenge runs from Monday July 30th to Saturday August 11th at 12 midnight EST.

Can't wait to see what you come up with for our challenge.  So get your thinking caps on
and get inking up those stamps.

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

Sue, this is darling! Ingenius idea to incorporate the rings with the events and all of the little mousies look like they are seriously competing in their given events. Brilliant!

Mousie cheers!

Donna Hanley said...

Sue, your creative mind just amazes me. You came up with an outstanding idea YAY for you. Your little Olympiads are all so precious they should win the gold just for their looks alone. I smiled when I saw your circles holding letters. I just did the same thing for an upcoming card. Maybe there is hope for me yet in the creative department.
I just adore this card.
How's our new little girl. Getting big I'm sure. Don't forget my kisses to her please.
