Beware! It's Really Pink!


Today's House Mouse & Friends Challenge is in memory and honor of Joanne {stamps4sanity}, who passed away suddenly this past week. Joanne was a sweet woman who spread cheer through her kind comments and card-making. Everyone on the House Mouse team, as well as countless others, will miss her dearly. Please see this post.
In honor of Joanne, the HM Design Team will be sending their cards this week to someone in need, as requested by Joanne's husband.

Our challenge this week was a sketch. I used two new House Mouse stamps for mine, and made it PINK, just like it was on the stamp!

I am offering "Mudpie Tells" as blog candy for a winner from this week's challenge participants. Be sure to link your card back to the sketch post HERE. You are welcome to turn or flip the sketch, but we should be able to see the original layout. Hope many of you will participate! The deadline for the blog candy is Friday of this week! December 19!
Thanks for stopping by today! Give a special hug or a kind word to those you care about today.

Your card is sooo pretty...definitely not too pink! This challenge was alot of fun ~ and thanks so much for sponsoring it. I do feel bad that there was such bad news to be shared this week. It is amazing to see how many people have been touched by this...stampers really are the nicest people around! :)
