Happy Monday!
This week the KL Stampin N Scrappin store is sponsoring the challenge at House Mouse Challenge blog. So the KLSNS design team was invited to participate in this weeks challenge.

The first challenge was that I do not own any House Mouse stamps. Thankfully, several of my fellow DT girls have plenty and sent me oodles of images. And Pia sent me images. But in the end I used an image that Kristen had in her stash.

This weeks HM challenge was to use this brilliant sketch. It was fun! That circle thing is not something that I would normally add on my own...but I was pleased with the final outcome.

I do have to admit that there is a reason that I don't own any HM stamps...they give me the heebie jeebies! Those tails and feet and teeth....shiver! Don't get me wrong, I like what others do with HM stamps. But I don't think that you will see oodles of HM cards on my blog. Sorry! heeheeheehee. Of course I do have a bunch of images now, so maybe you will! LOL!

Don't forget that today is the last day to take a guess at how many kisses are in the jar and win my blog candy!

Have a Merry Monday!

Cute (not the rat, but the card). Hey, a mouse is rodent, which in my mind is RAT!

Love the coordination of the patterned papers, always have a hard time with that part.
