House Mouse and Friends Design Team Call

The House Mouse and Friends challenge blog posted the following announcement this week. So if you love House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers stamps and are interested in applying for one of the two spots open on their Design team, read on:
Vacancy - Design Team Members wanted

We have a vacancy for 2 new DT members. The term will be for 12 weeks (12 challenges). You will be given a minimum of 2 weeks advance notice of upcoming challenges to give you plenty of time. You would also need to email your work to me by the Friday before the challenge (this will give me the weekend to prepare the post as i won't be around on Mondays soon).

If you are interested in joining our DT team then this is what you need to do:

Make a post on your blog containing the following:
1. Why you would like to join the team
2. Show three samples of your best work on the post (please post pictures and not links to help save us time), they don't have to be new work and do not have to contain HM stamps (though we would like to see at least one)
3. Leave a comment on THIS POST with a link to your application post.

In response to this call, and with this post, I wish to apply for one of the DT positions.

Why, you ask? Because I would be ecstatic if I were to be chosen to be one of the new members of the House Mouse and Friends Design Team. Each Monday the team presents a new challenge and I always thoroughly enjoy participating in these challenges; especially because they are using some of my favorite stamps: House Mouse, Gruffies and Happy Hoppers. My collection of House Mouse stamps is extensive and what a great opportunity it would be for me to be a part of the team that presents these weekly challenges using some of my favorite stamps. Oh yes! (she squeals)…I’d be delighted to be chosen!

Below are three sample cards of mine. I'm not sure if they are my "best work" but they are three of my favorite cards and I wish to submit them as samples.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.



  1. OH! OH! OH! I hope they choose YOU Ms Jennifer! You make the BEST little rat cards I've ever seen!! These are splendiferous!!
