Hello and welcome to another House Mouse Monday! This is the mid-way reminder for House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #189.  Our sweet and talented Teamie, Tracy has chosen the theme:

This week's card is an Easter card made with the sweetest image of Monica mouse sleeping on an Easter Egg.

You can't tell from this photo, but the Easter Egg was colored with glitter pens and is truly sparkly in person.

Here's one more view from the side so you can see the dimensional aspects of the card. I had a lot of fun layering everything together and adding the pearls, greenery, flowers and ribbon.

The decorative papers and pearls are Recollections, the flowers were from Paper Mart, the greenery is a Martha Steward punch, the ribbon is Stampin' Up!, and the dies are Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles.

When I saw this stamp, I loved it so much I ordered it twice. I didn't realize I had clicked on it two different times throughout the ordering process and the "Cart" at this particular shop didn't change the quantity to (2), it just listed it separately at the bottom. I didn't even notice my mistake until the package arrived. What to do, you ask? Give it away, of course!


If you would like a chance to win this Bonus Blog Candy, please leave a comment below telling me your favorite Easter Candy (or treat) and I will put your name in the hat. The Winner's name will be posted on the Winners Page on March 16th. (See Winners Page for more details.) Thank you all so much for your continued support and encouragement. Your comments are so special and I truly appreciate them. ~ Snoopy

Asha said...

My eyes went straight to his ears... too cute and flappy. Reminds me of my little doggie, Peanut's, ears. A couple of bigguns on a teeny tiny head! LOL. The card is so sweet and beautifully embellished too! My fave Easter treat - has to be Hot Cross Buns fresh out of the oven, light, springy, fruity with just a hint of spice and lashings of butter. yummmm. I bake them every Sunday starting on the 4th Sunday of Lent.... one more week to go! But I digress... so easily let astray, I am! :)
hugs, Asha
