Happy New Year and Welcome to the first Blog Hop of 2011 at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog. We always have so much fun and have some Super Doooooper prizes to give away this time! You can see all the sponsors and prizes on the challenge blog. There will be lots of winners this time around...each prize will go to a different person AND.........there is hidden blog candy along the hop as well. You must leave a comment here and then as you hop along, leave each DT member a comment as well as one on the main blog to be considered for the prizes. You have to have a card entered to win the main blog candy and the last I heard, our sponsors were RK Stamps, Simon Says, Di's Digi Downloads, and Joanna Sheen and the Official House- Mouse Designs!
You could be a winner! (ha that sounds like a TV commercial doesn't it?)
We also would like to introduce our first Guest Designer for January 2011-Tracy and her blog is Country Mouse! (now isn't that just the perfect blog name??) We hope you all play along and get a shot at being one of our guest designers this year!
Okay...a little bit about this card I made for our challenge this week-New Beginnings! This card sort of "morphed" You know what I mean??? You start out with a specific idea and the next thing you know, things have changed. Well...my "New Beginning" for 2011 was to use all the wonderful DP I own and not hoard my favorites and not go out and buy a ton until I make a dent in what I have...and Guess WHAT??? I took a nice little Michaels and Craft Warehouse gift card to the big city this weekend and promptly bought a bunch of "purty" paper! Oh well, I guess it makes me happy, but it does put my card in a different context now LOL!
Oops, almost forgot to mention that I used the sketch from SFYTT over at I (heart) 2 Stamp. This is a year long challenge. A once a month deal...let's see if I can remember!!!!
I hope you can hop along with all our team below and then hop along to TRACY's blog for the next stop! All our teamies are back and joining in! You have two weeks to link your creation on the main blog!
