From A butterfly To A Chevy

YAWN!............Monday Morning and the start to another week, why on a Monday does it  seem to take me forever to get going,  so I have for you, a double post for House Mouse and Prickley Pear

So to remind you of the theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Sue's turn to choose the theme and she chose "Sunny days" - Use something on your creation that represents sunny days.  I chose 'HMJR1017 Butterfly Express'  and to make it a sunny creation I inked in some sunshine amongst some clouds.  I decided to use black for matting and layering to make the colours pop.
Of course you must use a House MouseHappy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

We are sponsored by:-
Proudly Sponsored by; We are very excited to announce that One very Lucky Player will receive a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of these Premium Dye Ink Pads from Simon Says Stamp.

This cute House Mouse stamp is also a prize for this challenge from our lovely Sue.

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

Heather, cute card and you did such a nice job with the sun and clouds. Your second card is real nice and makes the perfect Father's day card for that very special dad. Enjoy your Monday.
