A newby to the House ~ Mouse Challenge Group


It's been over a month now since my last post and I have discovered the greatest place. It's the House ~ Mouse Challenge Blog. This is the cutest and most talented site I have been to in a while. I have had a few of these precious little mice hidding in my scrapbook stamp stash for a while and did not really know what to do with them until now. Here is the link
This will be my first time entering in the challenge. This week is Challenge #16 Glitter/Glitz. I have created an acrylic card with glittery snowflakes and then used baby blue stickles around Maxwell the mouse he is "Santa's Little Helper" Stamp #HMD1012 created by Ellen Jareckie if you are interested in obtaining any of her stamps go to House~Mouse Designs.
I colored the image in with prisma color pencils and used gamsol and blending stumps to shade him in. He is one of my favorite stamps, because he reminds me of a story book that my Grandmother used to read to me when I was a child. The book is called "Santa Mouse" and has a sequal book called "Santa Mouse Where are You!" So I just could not resist but to use this little gem of a mouse for my first entry into the House ~ Mouse Monday Challenge. Thanks for letting me participate this has truely been a great way to learn how to use my House ~ Mouse Stamps.
