Carrot Harvest

It's time for a carrot harvest! At least it appears to be for these cute little House Mouse critters and their Happy Hopper friend.  The challenge this week on House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog is "Your cup of tea and anything goes."  Well, gardening is my cup of tea so I chose this gardening themed House Mouse stamp titled, "Carrot Harvest."
Aren't they cute? So serious about their harvesting duties. I love the detail of this stamp. Even a cute ladybug climbs the green of the carrots. Do you see her?
I finished the inside of the card with the sentiment, "It's always spring in a gardener's heart." So true!
Stamps: Stampabilities "Carrot Harvest" and sentiment from The Stamp Barn
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stazon Pumpkin, image colored with Copic markers
Cardstock and Designer Paper: Stampin' Up!
Embellishments: Martha Stewart lattice border punch, Machine Stitching, Tiny spool carrot ribbon from Michaels, Grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up!, Making Memories Brads, Stickles glitter glue, Machine stitching.

If you get some time to craft I hope you'll get out whatever is your "cup of tea" to create with for the current House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog theme because ANYTHING GOES!
