House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-So Sweet

So Sweet!

Welcome to another Monday Challenge of the Meeces! Jennifer has chosen our challenge this time -- SO SWEET!  This includes anything that has chocolate, candy or your favorite sweet in the design.


I just got back from a wonderfully warm vacation-I was so sad to leave the sunshine of Arizona behind, but nice to spend Easter dinner with my family!

 So...ask me why I made a Christmas card??? Ha! Well...part of my vacation included "several" trips to Hobby Lobby! Boy, I love that store! And best of all, the meece stamps were on sale.This sweet stamp jumped in my cart (along with some others). This was a little tricky to color up (no  definitely lines for the candy cane!)  but I think it turned out SWEET!

I even used a sketch from The Sweet Stop. You can join their 3rd anniversary sketch challenge HERE.  I chose sketch #81.

Our sponsors this challenge are Simon Says Stamps-A wonderful $25 gift certificate.

and a $10 Gift Certificate from The Sweet Stamp Store!

I hope you can join in the fun for our Sweet challenge!

welcome home, Sue! Glad to hear that you enjoyed lots of Sunshine! :) I've never had a chance to go to Hobby Lobby yet...I wanna go to actual store (not online) to see where they sell tons of mice stamps, and can take a look at each one of them in person!! lol! :-) Luv your card. yes, it looks Very Sweet!! Beautiful coloring, esp. on that candy cane, despite of the lack of actual lines, Sue! :-)

Sue said...

No fair, warm sunshiney weather AND Hobby Lobby AND HM stamps on sale!!! I love this stamp, and I thought there was something wrong with mine because the lines were so faint on the candy cane, thanks for clearing that up. Great bright colors and the sweetest of stamps. Glad you had a great vacation with family.
