PROUD Mousey Team Designer
As for my House-Mouse Candy Winner, I want to apologize as I thought this announcement had already posted when it was scheduled. Ooops!   :( Did you play along on the HMFMC 200th Celebration Challenge?  It was super FUN to celebrate 7 years of creating with the adorable illustrations by Ellen Jareckie at  House-Mouse Designs®!!  We love our players and followers so had loads of prizes for you to show our appreciation.  It's always such a joy visiting all your lovely entries!  Thank you! :) The Winner is listed at the bottom.

Here is a new Christmas card for the current "Flower Power" theme for Challenge # HMFMC201, at House Mouse and Friends. It's hosted by Teamie, Pauline Bird. Come check it out HERE and enter. But hurry it ends Aug 29th.

A "Joyous Noel" Mousey and some Poinsettias
These dimensional Poinsettias were made with 3 separate Creative Expressions fabulous Festive Collection dies by Sue Wilson; (Classic Poinsettia, Classic Open Poinsettia, and the Mosaic Poinsettia). I started by cutting the classics first, then layered them with the Mosaic and/or the Open Poinsettias for the diff looks. Dimension was created by roll-shaping each petal with edge of a pencil and pressing the centers inward (on a foam surface). These were then adhered and topped with bling. It's super easy to do with these fabulous dies. Hope you will give these flowers a try.
