House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge- Apple of My Eye!

Isn't this just the cutest darn Happy Hopper stamp? I have had this stamp since it first was released. I have to say this blog is enticing me to use all my uninked stamps and I am lovin' it! The difference I am finding is that I used to make 3 or 4 of the same card but now most of my cards are just going to have to be "originals" because by golly, I am off to the next stamp....You should see the order I just received from Dick and Katie at Hmstamps and KTstamps. The links to their online stores are on to the left in places I like to shop! I am going to have to get busy!

Dick at HMstamps has decided to focus just on Penny Black stamps and Katie is now handling all the Peanuts, House Mouse and Friends, Stampendous etc. Go take a peek at their sites!

I made this stamp for the HM&F Monday Challenge...well my stamping time seems to be the weekends, so I am always the last minute lizzy in joining in! This week's challenge was to focus on stitching. This is the first time I have used my sewing machine on a stuff!

I pulled out my Summer Picnic DP from SU! Oh this stuff is sooooo nice! Love the rich colors. And of course my Martha scallop punch is never far from my reach!

I colored this image with my prisma's and then sewed the image on to some DP and added some little buttons and ribbons to finish it off. I love the sentiment I bought to go with this Happy Hopper too!

I used my beloved little paper shaper apple punch inside.

I am just blown away by your coloring! I can't even get close to your level! I have tried coloring a few of the images you sent me, and I swear they look like 5th graders colored them! I just need to keep practicing I guess and looking at your with envy! You are so amazing! Best, Curt
