House Mouse ,,,Sock Mice :-)

Hi all :-) the last 2 weeks have flown by and it is time for a new theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge 

Our super talented Teamie AMERICA is hosting this Challenge and has chosen...

Get out that heat gun and embossing powders! 

We are very proudly Sponsored by...

They are  generously offerering a $25 gift voucher to their
online store.

I heat embossed the sentiment and the button. I used Judikins Sticky Stuff for the button then sprinkled with glitter ,,,,, did I tell you how much I LOVE this stuff ?? :-)

This super cute image called Sock Mice is a new stamp of the month for Nov 2013.

 I stamped the inside with a simple 'Merry Christmas' greeting but I think this image would be nice as a New Baby or New Home card ,, what do you think ??

I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post.

Thanks for looking, our fabulous GD's Kate and Nancy, and the DT have made some gorgeous cards so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them :-)

Lorraine, you had me at the gingham papers! This is an adorable stamp and I am going to be sorry I didn't get it when I could. Love the red socks and sleepy babies, you're right, could be used for a lot of occasions. Pretty sparkly thread too.
