I'm a Guest Design Team member at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge!!!

I was very excited and honoured to be invited to be a Guest Designer at one of my favourite challenge blogs. I have been a House Mouse lover for many years and have an over-abundance of stamps. My first House Mouse stamp was bought at a yard sale when I didn't even know what stamping was all about but I was hooked with stamping and house mouse design stamps.  Now what is the challenge?

Challenge #254 at House Mouse and Friends Monday challenge is as always Anything Goes with an option of "Frosty" which means lots of glitter and bling!! So without any more chit chat here mine is.

My card is featuring Booda and is a "Gruffie" called Beary Fast Sled.  So for my "snowy" bits I used heat and stick powder and Diamond sugar dust (craft decor) on the snow, Star dust stickles on his hat and silver glitter paper for the frame. The  background was made with Broken china distress oxide ink, I need more practice with the splashing of water on it.

Close up and I hope you can see the glitter on his toque. 

I fussy cut the image and popped everything up. 

Finished the inside with the off-cut from the background and an ancient sentiment from Stampabilities.

There you have my first guest design team card!! so I hope you will join us at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge for Anything goes with the option of "Frosty"
