It's your birthday! Have a ball!
It's time for a brand new House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Blog challenge. The new challenge #120 is Circles and Polka Dots and all ROUND Fun! Our fabulous design team member Sue Drees is our hostess for the challenge and, as always, there are great prizes. House-Mouse Designs is giving away a $25 gift card and Pizzazz Aplenty is offering up a $10 Gift Package.
I'm a die hard Chicago Cubs baseball fan so it was a no-brainer for me to choose this adorable Happy Hopper stamp and create my circles and polka dots card in the Chicago Cubs colors: Red and Blue. I thought this would make a fun birthday card for a baseball fan and so that was my inspiration for my card.
Stamps: Stampabilities "Great Catch"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, image colored with Copic Markers
Designer Paper: Frances Meyer, Inc.
Tools and Embellishment: Machine stitching, Dashes, Dots and Checks ribbon in Red and Blue, Making Memories brads, special baseball brad (maker unknown), Crystal Stickles glitter and clear dimensional glaze.
I wanted to carry the baseball theme inside for the birthday sentiment. I added more ribbon and the cute baseball brad to a computer generated sentiment. This is the inside:
Now it's your turn. We want to see your fabulous House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie creations with the theme of Circles, Polka Dots and all ROUND Fun. Be sure to post your card on the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog linky. If you post to other online galleries, be sure to use HMFMC120 as your Keyword so we can find your card easily.
I'm looking forward to seeing lots and lots of fun cards using any round, dotted and or circular theme.
Until next time,
