HMFMC122 Summer Refreshments

There's another House Mouse challenge going on called the HMFMC122 to use "summer refreshments." The blog has reached 1000 followers and is celebrating with lots of fun and goodies, so click the link above and check it out. You could be a big winner just by playing along and leaving some love along the way!

I chose this sweet HM image and colored it with Copics, adding some dazzling diamonds and glossy accents. The card stock and paper is by PTI in shades of pale green and pink. Ribbon is by PTI, and the small flowers were done with a MS hydrangea punch and have tiny pink gemstones in the centers that are from Pizzazz Aplenty. The embossing was done with a SU fan fold ef.

PA is under an oppressive heat warning for the next two days, so I'll be staying indoors and keeping cool - much like this little mouse is doing in his icy cold drink! I hope your day is a great one for you too - and thanks for stopping by and spending a few minutes of your day with me :)

Your card is precious. I think I might have to get this image and also that MS Hydrangea punch. Your coloring is spot on and I love the embossing, bow and background paper
I feel cooler just looking at this little mouse. It is 90 here already, reportedly going to around 95 today, 98 tomorrow. Just ran some errands and will spend the rest of the day in the house with a/c.

This is one great card, Carol! I have gone over and over my collection and can't find a mouse that will work. I hope you do well with the prizes!

Carol, this is so adorable! I really like the colors you used, (especially the PINK frame) this is so well done! Jill <---trying to keep cool in this heat---with no air conditioning!

Super "cool" creation Carol. Love the pastel-y feel to it.

Send me some of that heat! It is still windy and cool here. Our cherries are never going to get ripe.
