HMFMC # 147

Good Monday morning friends.  Well it's time for another House Mouse & Friends challenge which is #147 Anything Goes - Use A Charm.  This is my final entry as a Guest Designer.  I love these little mice so it has been a lot of fun designing with them.  For this challenge I went with Halloween.  I have no reason why.   This is one of House Mouse's clear Halloween stamps.  There are a lot of stamps in this package and everyone of them is just darling.
I colored my image with Copics and cut it out with SB Square and Oval Square dies.  I sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink around the image before I removed it from the die.  I embossed it with the Cuttlebug's Honeycomb embossing folder.  The ribbon was a gift and the charm was in a bag of charms I won from House Mouse & Friends last year.   I know summer is just getting started, but the other night it felt like a very cool windy fall night, so now that I think about it maybe that is why I looked at the Halloween stamps this week.  I really appreciate you stopping by for a peek.  Hope to get back to see you all soon.  Have a wonderful Monday.  Bye for now - - -


  1. How adorably cute is your card with that pumpkin charm and fun image! This just makes me smile :) I love how you sponged your image after coloring it, and the hexagon embossing adds to the fun of this card! Oddly enough, I colored 3 Halloween House Mouse images over the week-end too :) Have a great week!

  2. Donna, love these little dressed for Halloween mice! That's the beauty of anything goes, right?
