House Mouse Monday Challenge #127 + some photos

     Howdy, all of you House Mouse lovers!  It is time for a new challenge.  This time, the theme was chosen by team mate, America.  Her theme is Back to School/ At the Office.

     For my card, I used a white base and blue card stock from DCWV.  My paper is digital as are my school elements. My HM stamp this time is called Class Clown, and he is new to my collection.  Me thinks he will be juggling many things during his life!  LOL!  My apple is coated in Glossy Accents and all of the metal is outlined with a Sakura Stardust pen.  Image coloring was done with Copic Markers.  The only additions are Pop Dots, and a twine bow.  The photo looks so much better when you click on it and make it larger!

     Now, on to the photos I promised of the OWH card party I attended on Saturday!

     Yes, this is me standing near the table of finished cards.  My friend Carol took this shot.  Thanks, Carol!


There were so many gorgeous creations!

They are all packed with love to send to the troops.

     Okay, I am out of here for now.  I must get to work.  Thanks for  stopping around.  I always enjoy your visits.

Mary Anne, This card is just phenomenal. All of your coloring is great but I have to say you really nailed the exact color of the erasers. I'm looking at one right now sitting on my desk and you've matched it perfectly. I love all of your embellishments but I don't know if this little mouse will be all that happy with all his upcoming work that these adornments represent. We'll jut have to wait and see. LOL. Great picture of you that Carol took. I so missed not being able to attend. You girls did an outstanding job on all of those cards for our heroes. YAY! Enjoy your day.

What a fun little "juggler" -- hope that pencil doesn't come down the wrong way and "poke his eye out"! You guys did excellent work for OWH -- wonderful picture of you overseeing all those cards!!

Mary Anne your House Mouse card is just adorable. So many neat details. Great pics from Saturday. Would you believe I only took one pic? Too busy making cards, I guess...smile. It was a fun day, and I so enjoyed seeing you, Carol, and Kathy there, and meeting all those nice ladies. Hope we get to do it again.

This is the most ADORABLE card I've ever seen. I love love everything about it. I saw the day you posted it on FB and this is the first chance I've had to come over.
Look at that beautiful picture of you, I'm sure you are very happy with the great accomplishment you and your friends have completed.
