Hi House Mouse Lovers - Just a quick reminder that we are half way through our current Challenge, hosted by American, who wants you to use a stamp that you haven't used before.

We are Sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week with a random assortment of their new inks, and as
a bonus, America is offering two lucky winners a chance to pick two house mouse stamps.

Here is my finished card.  I have had this stamp for awhile, and I think I
was a little intimidated to color it up, but once I got started, I loved it.

I used glossy accents on the big lobster.

Is the little House Mouse so cute with his buddy or what!

Lots of stickles (star dust) in the aquarium and on the coral
in the background.

I finished my card off with this little row of fish from a tiny punch.

This big beautiful stamp is by Stampabilities and is called Nutty Buddy.
I like to call it the NUTCRACKER! (HMTR1034)

Hope you can join the fun and play along with us.  You have until Saturday, January 25 at midnight EST.
Please take a look at the midweek inspiration on the HMFMC blog.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later..........

Sue this does look intimidating to color and I think I'd shy away from it, but you did an outstanding job with it. It came out beautiful. Great work with the Stickles also. Have a great week.
