House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge #126


     I love me a good House Mouse Challenge!  This time the challenge is called Double Take, and we are asked to use a stamp that has at least two mice acting out!

     I used a stamp called Tin Can Showers (HMKR1035), and my sentiment is called Joy Doubled (FR1100).  I purchased that sentiment to go with a holiday image, but I thought it fit the challenge.  My card base is white, and the designer paper was a gift from my DD.  I think she said it was SU!  Coloring is done with Copic markers, and sponging is with Memento and SU! ink.  For embellishments, there are Prima mini flowers, gems, a button, and embroidery floss for a bow.


     The inside is decorated, and has a tuck flap element for a secret message.  This was another little giftie from my DD.  I have to use these goodies...... right?  Do you find yourself saving things?  Whenever I find one of those saved items in my stamp room, I say to myself, "Today is the day"!

With this heat we have been having this summer, this card is super refreshing. What beautiful paper too. Yep, have paper I don't want to cut into too!!! I always say, the biggest part of stamping is the collecting stuff....Thanks for joining us again this time, Mary Anne. Love to come see what you come up with, always fun. House Mouse and Friends Monday appreciates your loyalty.
