House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge


When I don't have mojo, I always reach for my house mouse stamps and I can at least seem to churn something out. The challenge this week is red, white and blue. Ice pops just seem to remind me of summer growing up and I have 2 siblings so this stamp seems to fit the bill. The words are from a 4th of July set from the $1 bin at Michaels. Don't you love those $1 stamps? I'm always checking those bins. The paper is from last summer's DCWV summer stack. The shinying stuff on the popsicle is some glossy accents. I tried to give it the illusion of melting.
since they are leaving a little puddle as they munch.

This is so gorgeous Patti - love that fabulously coloured image and what fantastic patriotic ribbon.
Never mind the $1 bin, I just like a Michaels is the UK.
Thanks so much for playing along at HM&F.

This is adorable.. I have this image as well and was thinking of using it for the challenge as well, but I just found the HM blog this morning, so don't think I'll have time to join in on the fun this week.
