2012 Olympics - Gruffie cycling team

Are you engrossed in watching the Olympic games in London?  I sure am!  I try to catch as many events as I can.  So what could be more appropriate than for the challenge theme at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog than for you to create a card or project with the theme of  The Olympics ?  Our lovely design team member, Heather, is the challenge hostess and she'd like to see you use your House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie stamps and show your Olympic pride and spirit.

For my card I decided to use these fun Gruffie bears on their tricycle and skate board.  Do you suppose this could be a new event in the team cycling category some time in the future?  tee hee! 

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Stampabilities "Biggly's Tow Service"
Cardstock:  Stampin' Up!
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, image colored with Copic Markers
Accessories:  Nestibilities circle dies for the Olympic rings, Score Pal, MM brads in blue, black, red, yellow and green, Nestibilities tag tie, Stickles glitter in red.

Be sure to check out the House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge blog for inspiration from all of the team and then let your imagination run.  We are looking forward to seeing your creation using the Olympic theme and your House Mouse and Friends stamps.  Our sponsors for this challenge are  a $25 gift card from House-Mouse Designs and from  Pinkgemdesigns  a Best of British digi kit to our randomly drawn winners.  So be sure to link your card on the House Mouse and Friends blog for your chance to win.  And if you also post in online galleries, be sure to use the key word: HMFMC125 so we can easily find your card.

Until next time,
