Our NEW challenge at HMFMC

  (using any House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image )

OR ( challenge theme Option)

Anything Christmas
  (using any House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image )

This is our Finale challenge of 2017-- we will be back after our
festive break on Mon. Jan 8th. with more cute House Mouse creations 
and super generous Sponsors. 


I am honored to ring out 2017 and ring in 2018 as the House Mouse Challenge Hostess with the Mostest! 

There are soooo many cute  holiday images to choose from it was hard to pick...I must admit to having a pile of new HM holiday stamps-it is just finding the time to get them all colored!

I colored this image -Nestled in Bed with copics and added several layers to the image...the stocking and the whole bed of meeces! I finished the design off with a little doodling with my white signo pen. The sentiment was a perfect fit for this stamp and is a retired set from CardzTV 'Home for Christmas'. The box is cut with my Silhouette and can be found here.
