House Mouse Blog Hop


How exciting, it's a blog hop at House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, and now that i'm a fully paid up member of the team, I can take part and not as a GDT this time.


Our wonderful Teamie, Christine, is hosting this Blog-Hop Challenge and she wants to see you creating LOVE THEMED projects with MORE than one HEART. Perfect challenge in time for Valentine's Day.

So here is my creation and I have used "HMJR1060 Take A Bite Out Of Love", there was a lot of die cutting and punching going on in this card, but haven't used my Cricut for such a long time I thought it needed some loving.

We are proud to be sponsored by

The Official, House-Mouse Designs site
ONE VERY LUCKY WINNER will get a $25.00 Electronic Gift Certificate to the official HMD store.

Joanna Sheen
Another WInner will get this UM Gruffies Rubber Stamp Set!!!

Winner will receive a fab selection of shaped cards & stands
