House Mouse Goodbye/Farewell Challenge and Blog Hop


This is my first week as a Designer on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge and I can't tell you how happy I am to be here :-)

To celebrate 5 newbies joining the team America has put together THE most fabulous prize and I for one would LOVE to have a chance to win this lot of goodies :-) How FANTASTIC is this !! :-) ALSO there is lots of gorgeous candy hidden on several of the Design team's blogs :-)

For a chance to win you need to complete the hop, leave a comment on ALL the DT blogs AND enter this fortnights challenge which is

GOODBYE/FAREWELL :-)



You should have arrived here from the lovely LORI'S BLOG, if not you may wish to start from the beginning at the Challenge blog :-)



The thinking behind my card was ,, 'well my bags're packed and am ready to go' ! Leaving on a Jet Plane :-) A plane charm would have been perfect , but didn't have one so a boat had to do :-)
I used my lovely Happy Hopper stamp , this one is called Fancy Pants :-) I coloured the image with copics and added tiara stickles for sparkle :-) The papers are a digi download set from Nitwit Collections and the 'Bon Voyage' plate was a gift from Heidi at Simon Says Stamp and is made by Martha Stewart :-)



I found this fabulous free suitcase template on the Mirkwood Designs site and just happened to have this SU paper and small ribbon sliders ,,, perfect I thought ! :-)



From here you need to go to MARY'S BLOG :-) if you haven't been there before you are in for a treat :-)

I am entering this into the Frosted Designs Challenge whose theme is 'Shoes' :-)

there may be some hidden candy here ,,,, you won't know until we announce the winners on 7th June ,,, but just in case ,,, leave a link to your challenge entry with mr Linky !! :-)
My fortnightly candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp is also linked to the HM and friends Challenge so you can link your creation there too !! Good Luck :-)
