It's challenge time again at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge. This fortnight's theme is Liquid Refreshment HMFMC#151 and what better way for little Maxwell mouse to cool off than floating in a walnut boat in his favorite frozen drink.

(click on photo for larger view)
I used half of a tiny 4 oz. cup to make his drink. I lightly sanded the inside of the cup, lined it with pink nail polish, and sprinkled it with chunky pink glitter (for the frozen ice effect). Then I popped little Maxwell up a couple of times to make it seem like he was floating in the middle of the cup.

This was such a fun challenge to play along with. If you like this card, you should really go over to the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge page and see all the entries. So much fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
