It's Double Trouble for Challenge HMFMC126

Welcome back! Hope you have enjoyed the incredible and inspiring London 2012 Summer Olympics as much as I did.  They went fast, but the spirit and memories will last a lifetime.

It's that time again for a NEW House-Mouse and Friends MC challenge. 
The theme is: * DOUBLE TROUBLE * and here is my take;
I went for these Two adorable Mice (Mudpie and Amanda), getting into trouble with taking the pits out of these Olives. LOL!  

Speaking of Olives... I was wondering if Olives are a Fruit or a Vegetable, so I went searching the web and found this:  
"Olives are the fruit of olive trees. While they are technically fruit, culinarily
, olives are often called vegetables because of how they are used."
STAMPS: Stampabilities, House-Mouse Designs, stamp called "What A Pit". It's from the year 2001 and it features *Mudpie and Amanda* , stamp #HMUR1040.
PAPERS:  SEI DP, Bazzill Brown, Cream & Green CS
INK:  Memento Tuxedo Black,  Studio G Blues (for sponging Sky), COPICS
ACCESSORIES: Spellbinders, Flourish Punch, Cuttlebug Frame BG Folder, Ribbons & Button, Silver Cording, Ranger Silver Stickles
TECHNIQUES: Dry Embossing, Sponging 

This new challenge is hosted by our fun and talented Team Member, Lori Bartnett, who wants to see everyone creating with this fun theme;

* Double-Trouble *
Lori said: "Double-Trouble. Our little House-Mouse friends sure know how to have fun...especially when there's more than ONE! My challenge is to use a House-Mouse stamp that has at least 2 mice (or their friends) in it. If you don't have one...that's OK. Find a friend for your single image and create your own little scene. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!"
