Happy Monday House-Mouse lovers.  I hope you're all enjoying watching the amazing OLYMPIC Games happening in London!!!  I cant get enough!  :)
We're at the mid-way stage of our OLYMPICS themed challenge at House-Mouse & Friends MC. Come play along with us. You can find us HERE. All you need to do is create a project using a House-Mouse, Happy Hopper, or, Gruffies stamp/image to enter.  Be sure to reference our challenge code # HMFMC125 when uploading your projects to online galleries.

Here is a second Olympic take from me cheering on ***TEAM USA***
 It was lots of fun to design (though I had originally intended on creating a Medal Award Olympic Podium instead).  It went in a completely different route as I kept adding more and more details....:)

PAPERS:  White Heavy CS (110lb), Bazzill Navy Blue CS, Glossy Red CS
