A Sweet House Mouse Monday to You

Is there anywhere that people aren't wearing ear muffs and coats? Can I come over?
Wow! I think this is the weirdest winter lots of places have had in a long time! Snow and cold and ice and STUFF! Maybe a trip to Hawaii is what I need for Christmas!

This little Monica House Mouse is all cozy and warm on her cotton ball bed. Today's House Mouse & Friends Challenge was to incorporate some embossing on your card. I used two kinds: I embossed with Stampin' Up! White Craft Ink and then used Stampendous Pearlized Plum Embossing Powder on the sentiment (from Stampin' Up!'s So Very) and I also embossed with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. All designer paper is by K & Co. This card is 4.25 inches square.

Be sure to join in this week - any kind of embossing, and link your card HERE, as we have a great prize for one of the participants from 7 KIDS COLLEGE FUND. Congratulations to CRAFTERESA, who won my blog candy ("Mudpie Tells") from the House Mouse Challenge last week!

Thank you to my friend, Jami, for my great new watermark!!

The wind chill today is only minus 12, so it will be another busy shopping day! I have to finish mine up (just started on Friday!), so off to find my gloves and ear muffs! Have a wonderful day!
