House Mouse & Friends Blog Hop & Challenge #100 Celebration!

The House Mouse Challenge site is celebrating their 100th challenge, and the theme is "Buttons, Bows, and Bling".  How fun is that?  You must go check out their site and play along.  There is a blog hop and so many prizes!  Even some of the DT members have added extra prizes!  A fun time will be had by all.

We are just sweltering here in PA.  Most flowers are having a hard time looking perky, but I did notice the places with Sunflowers seemed to be doing well.  When I opened my HM drawer, this stamp called "Sunny Side Up" jumped out at me.  I colored it with Copics, cut it out and popped it on top of some designer paper from Frances Meyer, that I think gave us some dimension.  My sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michaels.  I added gingham ribbon and a bow topped with a green button w/gem. Down the side I did 2 rows of tiny bling in shades of amber.

Wow, that was such fun!  Please be sure to pass on this info to all of your House Mouse fans!

I need to get my butt in gear and play along with that HM challenge! My HM stamps are so neglected I think I can hear them crying :)
This is really cute with all the bling and great papers! I have this stamp and need to dust it off.
I'd send my leftover chocolate over, but there is none in the house anymore. It would melt as soon as I walked out the door anyway LOL
