HM #119 Humor

     Happy Mother's Day!  Hope all of you hard working mom's, had a bit of a rest and were pampered for a time. I was fortunate to have each child for a visit today.  The new groom did not stay past lunch at Olive Garden, as he is fighting a cold and was trying to keep his distance. It is now quiet, and I get to play in the stamp room.

     The newest House Mouse Monday Challenge is about humor.  I dug out the funniest HM stamp I own, and went to work.  It is called Monster Mouse.  When I found this unmounted stamp, in the bottom of a bag, I was sure I found the right sentiment.  Life sure gets crazy sometimes, and we have to stop and give it a giggle.

Ink:  Versafine, Copics, Distress Ink
Stamps:  House Mouse, and Unknown
Card stock:  All scraps from Marco's Paper
Designer Paper:  Basic Grey Out of Print
Embellishments:  Prima flowers, Dew Drops, MS branch Punches
Dies: Spellbinders Labels Twenty-three, Fancy Tags

     Thanks for stopping around, and enjoy what is left of your day!
