House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #132

Time for another House Mouse and Friends Monday
Challenge # 132.
But, before we get started, we'd like to thank everyone who took part in our last challenge and
Blog Hop.  There were some great cards/projects entered and we enjoyed looking at each one.
Please check the website for the winners.  If you hopped along, you need to check to see if you won any of the prizes that the design team offered also.
The winner of my blog candy is:
# 8 - Debi Brile from "That Might Look Good On A Card"
Debi, please email me at with your complete address, as it should read on the mailing label and I will get your envelope with the goodies right out to you.
On to Challenge # 132
I had the pleasure of choosing the theme for this week's challenge, and because it
is only 50 days til Christmas, I have chosen
Anything that you do to prepare for Christmas, you know, the  cooking, baking, wrapping, decorating, shopping, trimming the tree, etc.

These two Happy Hoppers are busy wrapping up their gifts.
Stamped and colored with Copics.
Spellbinders die and lace doily
Cheery Lynn Holly die
Circle stamp is a clear set
Papers from my stash
Two generous sponsors this week:
Simon Says Stamp - $25 Gift card to their online store.
Please remember, shipping and any taxes are the responsibility of the winner.
Sweet Stamps Store - $10 Gift Card
Hope you will join us for our Getting Ready for Christmas Challenge.  Do check out the
beautiful samples at the blogsite made by our fabulous design team and get inspired.
We love to checkout what you come up with for our challenges.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful Monday. Until later............
