Winter Hugs and some CANDY

It's time for a fabulous new challenge at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, this fortnight our theme is: Brrrr, it's COLD outside hosted by Lori Barnett - you can also enter a card with an anything goes theme as long as you use a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie image that will be fine.

We are also having a very SPECIAL Blog Hop to celebrate six years of creating with our adorable little House-Mouse critters.

All the rules for the blog hop can be found on the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge blog along with a list of participating design team members, if you make it to the end of my post you will find some House-Mouse candy to win just by leaving a comment on my blog and being a follower.

I have used a fabulous coloured image (with lots of added glitter) and papers from Joanna Sheen's House-Mouse Triple CD.


I have framed my image with a Tattered Lace Starlight Square die cut and my sentiment tag is a LOTV stamp.


I have added a bow tied with Seam Binding from The Ribbon Girl and a Poinsettia made using a Sue Wilson die.
