Here comes the Sun

Today's new House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog's  challenge #121 is hosted by our lovely DT member Sue Kment and she has a SUMMER theme challenge for us, "Here Comes the Sun".  Even though right now the weather here in the Ottawa valley is rather dismal, rainy and cold, I still have hope that summer is on its way!  So let's celebrate the coming of summer and the sun with cards using your House Mouse, Happy Hopper and/or Gruffies stamps with a sunny theme.
These little mice are practicing safe sunbathing by applying their SPF 34 sunscreen, which is actually white liquid pearls. 

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Stampabilities and Papertrey Inc. Sentiment
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black and Stampin' Up! Ballet Blue.  Image colored with Copic Markers
Paper and Cardstock:  Stampin' Up!
Accessories and Embellishments: White Liquid Pearls, Spellbinders tag die, Martha Stewart half pearls, Offray blue grossgrain ribbon, shell charm of unknown origin, stickles glitter glue.

Also, on this week's The Paper Players blog, the theme challenge # 98 is SUMMERTIME. So I'm entering my summertime House Mouse card on Paper Players too.

Be sure to check out House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog for more inspiration and fun of the furry little meece enjoying the sun by cards from the rest of the design team at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog.  After you upload your card onto the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge linky, if you also upload  onto other galleries, please use the key words HMFMC121 so we can find your card.  The prize this week to our lucky winner will be from
Simon Says Stamps:  A $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp shop.

Until next time,
