The new challenge at House Mouse and Friends #150 is HEAT EMBOSSING, chosen by our talented leader, America.

Here is a close up of the stamp I used.  I embossed the image
the snowflakes and used Fran-tage embossing powder around the
base of the image, and also gold embossed their hallos.

Stamp - House Mouse Designs
Paper, White and blue card stock
Dies - Spellbinders Grand Delicate Ovals
Snowflake dies - Sizzix, punched, Martha Stewart
Flowers - Prima
Bow is from my Stash
Colored with Copics
We are graciously sponsored by:

Who is generously offering a $25 gift voucher to their online store.
The design team has gotten their heat guns out and fired them up with some
wonderful samples of heat embossing  to inspire you to join us.  We love to see what you come up with.
This challenge will run through Saturday, August 10th at midnight DST.
Hope you can join us.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Until later..................
