HMF #115 Inspiration Challenge

On the House Mouse and Friends Blog Challenge today Lorraine has an inspiration piece for this weeks challenge. Our sponsors this week are: Simon Says Stamp and Sweet Stamps Shop
PRIZES are a $25 Gift Certificate to Simon Says Stamp and a $10 Gift Certificate to Sweet Stamp Store.
Don't forget to upload your House Mouse Creations to the Hand Stamped By Me gallery on the House Mouse Site found HERE! The House Mouse Designs would love to have your work added to the gallery.

For the life of me I could not get the Inspiration photo to save on my computer. So please head on over the House Mouse and Friends Blog Challenge to see the photo. It is of some yummy cupcakes! The chocolate and the blue frostings were my inspiration. For the first time ever I have used a stick pin on my card. GASP! I know it is not as elegant as some have done but I do like how it turned out with the bow. I want to say thank you to America for sending me the goodies so I could make the pin for my creation today also! :0) This is Sleeping in the Crocus from House Mouse and one of my favorites. Yes I do say my favorites a lot when it comes to House Mouse but I can't help it. ha! Used my Spellbinders Classic Circles to make my frame that I popped up on dimensionals. Viola a simple and sweet card for any occasion. Thanks for stopping in today. Be sure to check back on Wednesday as Flourishes Sneak Peeks start for March Release.
