House Mouse Challenge Anything Goes with Option Theme FROSTY

A Special Greeting, friends!
So delighted to be joining my friends at

House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge

as a guest designer for the next 3 challenges!
Sigh - I just love those darling little mice, their friends and their antics.

 House Mouse & Friends Secret

#254 Anything Goes OR Theme Option "Frosty"
November 13th-25th 

Monica is helping her dear friend stay warm on a frosty day with this cute stamp called "Birdie Booties". Even the name is sweet:

The frame and die cut are both coated and heat set with
SNS Sparkle EP107.
Believe it or not, the frame is actually the same color paper as the turquoise paper in the mat. The edges of the Winter Fun Corner Die, the turquoise frame and the designer paper were all distressed with Walnut Ink, left to dry, and then distressed again with VersaMark ink, with more Sparkle EP107 added:

The sweet sentiment from SNS Eskimo Kisses Rubber Stamp Set (also available in digital) was stamped in black VersaFine and coated with clear EP and heat set on pearly vellum. The little star brads were also coated with Sparkle EP107.

So get those cute little House Mouse and Friends stamps out, make your sweet creations, and load them to the

House-Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!

Such a fun, sweet group of designers, too.

It's a darling image, and beautifully colored & presented too. I love these mice, and find coloring them in brown, I'm challenged for some reason. I can do grays ok but not the browns. Also love that sweet little bird with his booties and hat. The modern frame around the little critters is perfect to show them off too. Love this one....perfect for this chilly season. TFS & Hugs

This is so adorable, Donna! The hat and booties, and now Monica is about to slip the scarf onto her birdie friend -- I just love that!! I'm especially, totally, absolutely in love with how perfect this image is with the sentiment, too. They really look like they were meant for each other. Beautiful coloring, and love the sweet corner die and fabulous sparkle.
