House Mouse #124

     Please forgive me for showing my crazy humor.  Now that that is out of the way, let me tell you about the current challenge over at The House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog.  The theme for Challenge #124 is Summer Holidays, Summertime Fun, or anything Summer.  I wanted to do something simple, without a lot of fluff.


     First I must say that it's all Toby Keith's fault (this is where I was going to insert the song link, but did not want to offend anyone) for making such a snappy tune.  Second, I can not take credit for thinking up the cup stack, as I saw it on someones blog, and lost it to acknowledge them.  It was however my idea to add a House Mouse stamp!  Summer is party time for the young and young at heart!  What is used more for party time than Red Solo Cups!

     My stamp is 119C Jumping For Joy.  The papers and card stock are all scraps.  The cup image is courtesy of Google.  Red pearls, Pop Dots, a computer generated sentiment finish things off.

     Thanks for stopping around, and I dare you not to be humming this tune, if you listen to it!

Mary Anne, you have an amazing mind. I would have never be able to think of such a wonderful idea. Your are right, I cannot have party without red Solo Cups. I love the sentiment also. A total winner, which is the norm for your creations. I so enjoy visiting your blog. You offer us a lot of great inspiration. Enjoy your weekend.

Mary Anne,
OMGosh, I love it! It's really a hoot to come to your blog as I leave smiling all the time. I need an intervention to not take this so seriously!
