House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #100-Buttons, Bows and Bling

My Outlines post is posted below this one! Don't miss it!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Welcome to our huge 100th House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!     How cool is that?




 We have so many prizes and such great creations made with our Buttons, Bows and Bling theme!


I made this fun box as a belated birthday gift and now that it is posted, it will be winging it's way soon to the birthday girl! I am always a last minute lizzy LOL!


I have been stuck on fresh blueberries for the last several months, so I had to ink this one up to  honor of the fresh  blueberry season....YUMMY!


I used a premade kraft box that I covered with some fun DP and then added my little meece and some gold bling to jazz it up a wee bit. I told the birthday girl she has to wait to see what is inside, but there is a  hint in the picture...heehee


Details: Blueberry Delight (Mudpie) HMUR1068, Dp is Life of the Party-Shindig and My Minds Eye American Made "The Day We Celebrate" (does not show in this pic), Gold pearls, Oval nesties-regular and lacy


We have soooo many prizes, both on the blog and on the teamies blog's!... I am offering a chance to win this to any stamper that joins our 100th Challenge!

You have to play our challenge to win my blog candy stamps!

Now, I know some of you are not House Mouse Creators (oh imagine that), so for two of you that may  not actually enter the challenge, I am offering and cute little Errand lister and a Post It Note. You can order all kinds of fun products from House Mouse Antics!


 You do not have to play to win this!
Or this fun Post It Note pad.

Please do tell. Spill the details!! LOL!!! You and I should have set this challenge out together to try to win some of the amazing sponsored prizes!!! heheh.

Carolina Girl (Cely) said...

Oh My Sue.....adorable and creative is the first thing to come to my mind. My first ever rubber stamp was a house mouse and I wasn't even into card making.....the rest is history. I've joined many challenges, but like the hundreds of others I couldn't win and that's why I don't buy lottery tickets. I'll just have to buy but they are all so wonderful. And, the critters in the pea pod..oh man....so cute. Perhaps I'll try one more time with the other hundred of house mouse lovers. LOL

Carolina Girl (Cely) said...

PS....I have blueberry bushes in my backyard. The birds think I must share.

Charlene said...

What an adorabe little blueberry mouse and great idea for a gift....hmmmm, did I smell a blueberry tart in there?

I'm off to try to get a HM card finished today...hope I can remember all those directions, though! You're talking to a brain damaged girl here.
