House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Here Comes the Sun

Welcome to  House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #121-Here Comes The Sun

Isn't this House Mouse stamp stinkin cute? It really just makes me smile! Although we are still waiting for summer to arrive here in Oregon, I know it is not far off!

I stamped and cut up the image, adding a second colored umbrella on pop dots. I then added  a few layers of 'sand' and 'waves' on pop dots as well.  I used my EK Success  sand castle border punch and also my Fiskars wave punch-love those punches!. To finish off my summer creation- I added a fun DeNami sentiment!

Sandy said...

This is one of the cutest cards I think I have every seen in my life. I love the way you have designed this - it is the perfection of wonderfulness. The die cuts are out of this world and I do have to say, I laughed out loud at these cute mice. I am making a promise to make some House Mouse cards after the summer is over. They are incredibly cute. I love this card Sue!!!!

Sandy said...

I just cannot help but make another comment. Great idea for the embossed sky and the way the sand changes colors is - well -- you thought of everything except for the suntan lotion! I am just gonna sign this your secret pal and then no one will know I posted twice.
