House Mouse and Friends 2nd Anniversary Challenge #78

We are having a BLOG HOP to  celebrate the 2 year anniversary of House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!

Yes, it has been 2 whole years!  This is one of the first challenge blogs I found when I discovered blogging!  This anniversary took me down memory lane and I had to go back and look at the first HM&F's Monday Challenge that I participated in...and it was the very first one(imagine that???)...and I was late and entered it for Challenge #2. You can see that card HERE! Such fun to look back  at all those meece cards!

This  challenge was brought to you by Lorraine this week!  Use this sketch with an additional celebration theme if you are so inclined!


My celebration theme is the first day of school. I had this darn card in my head the whole time and do you think I could find my little pencil stamp when I needed it????????..noooooooo...I finally remembered a wonderful card that Mary made using a big digi pencil from All That Scraps!   I hopped right over to ATS and..... problem solved!!


We have such wonderful sponsors for this anniversary challenge! You must go take a peek at all the prizes you can win. We even have House Mouse.com as a sponsor!

To win any one of these wonderful prizes, you must first enter the challenge-(let's see what you can do with this sketch)...and then you must leave a comment on the on the House Mouse and Friends Blog and tell us how many pieces of cheese you managed to nibble on throughout all the blogs.(comments will be on moderation so no one can take a peek at your answer!)



I am at the end of the BLOG HOP. (yep, the last in line) If you have come from Sue Drees blog, you are right on track! As you can see, I have 12 pieces of cheese to nibble on here. I am sure your tummy is getting quite full! I hope you kept track of how many pieces of cheese you found during the blog hop!
