House Mouse and Friends-Let's Get Fruity #123

Welcome to Challenge #123 at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Let's Get Fruity!

You probably all know that I am currently right in the middle of cherry harvest where I work, so of course I would have cherries on my mind!  I fashioned this card from a card I made many, many years ago when I first started stamping House Mouse cards-- 10 years ago!

Before I forget...the winner of my Meece blog candy is-Carol at Our Little Inspirations! Send me an email Carol and I will get your stamp in the mail!

When I first started making cards with the meeces, I only had individual mouse stamps. Back then I would make scenes with the meece. They played with the Peanuts gang and the Penny Black crew...whoever was hanging around at the time! A great way to stretch your stamps.

Now here's a confession...I am a paper hoarder LOL!  When I get paper I LOVE- I hate to use that last piece..... This great black and cherry paper is from SU! several years ago, and this is almost the last tiny piece of it (sniff, sniff). And...the fun plaid ribbon is from my precious retired SU! stash too!

Yep-I cut loose with this one!

Our sponsors for this challenge are:

 A $25 gift certificate from Simon Says Stamps
A $10 gift certificate from I Love Sweet Stamps.

I hope you join us for this challenge! There are tons of house mouse stamps out there with fruit, or lots of fruity designer paper, or maybe even fruity sentiments! HA!

Darling! I love me some cherries and some House Mouse so this is wonderful to me. 10 years of doing HM - that is amazing in itself. Some of my first images were HM and I think it was about 7 years ago. Of course, I had no idea how to color them, but I bought them anyway!!LOL! Wonderful card.

Glenda Atkins said...
