House Mouse and Friends Blog Hop


I'm very excited to be a part of House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog's FIRST BLOG-HOP of 2012! 

Our wonderful Teamie, Christine, is hosting this Blog-Hop Challenge and she wants to see you creating LOVE THEMED projects with MORE than one HEART.  It's the perfect challenge and just in time for Valentine's Day.

For my sample card I used the darling Happy Hopper stamp titled A Stitch in Time and colored it with copic markers.   I added some machine blanket stitching to the edges of the BoBunny designer background paper and some soft lace from my sewing stash.  Then just added a few heart shaped punchouts, a heart shaped slide and heart ribbons.  See how fun this challenge is? 

AND...

Just because I love my blog-o-sphere visitors SO MUCH I decided to offer some blog candy of my own.  Would you like to win this stamp and some gem bling?  All  you have to do is leave me a comment with telling me what your favorite House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffies stamp is along with an email address so I can contact you if I draw your name.  You have until February 12th at 11 p.m. (EST) to leave me your comment and I'll then use the random number to draw a lucky winner for my own blog candy winner.


So be sure to start the Blog Hop by going directly to House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog hop and see ALL of the fabulous prizes being offered by our wonderful and very generous sponsors. And then you'll want to visit each of the design team's blog.  Many of the DT members are offering prizes so be sure to visit them all.  Then, create a project for this challenge that follows the *LOVE Theme, includes more than one heart*. Remember you must use a House-Mouse, Gruffies or, Happy Hoppers image. Enter your project into this challenge by linking it with Linkitz . When posting to your blogs and galleries, please link your projects back to this blog. You may enter as many times as you'd like, as long as your projects are all NEW creations. You MUST also Become a *Follower* of our Mousie BLOG to be eligible for prizes.

  9. Jennifer, so many beautiful details make this card so special. That bunny is very carefully stitching up that heart, he looks like he's concentrating hard! The papers, the lace and your own stitching make this so lovely. So glad to have you joining us on the team.

  11. Beautiful, sweet card Jennifer, love all the details. Picking a favourite HM stamp would be like picking a favourite sibling! Right now I'll go with a Gruffies stamp, Beary Big Delivery, as the little bear peeking out of the window just melts my heart every time I see him! But aske me again next week and it will most likely be different again!

    Hugs

  12. Wow Jennifer what a beautiful card and that image is gorgeous hun. Such a very hard decision on my fave HM stamp but I have a big soft spot for Buzz Cut (where the mouse has had all of his fur cut off lol!!!). The Gruffies one which I am saving for is Gruffy in the car with lots of pressies on top of the roof rack. The Happy Hoppers one is the bunnt in the bath.

  63. Such a beautiful card!
    Picking a favourite HM stamp is not possible. I and my daughter love them all equal. Our collection counts 109 wooden stamps and 1 set cling stamps. We have one rule: there must be a mouse on it! No gruffies or bears only, even though they are cute. :)
