Fun in the Sun

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at the House-Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge and this fortnight our theme is: Sunny Days chosen by Sue Drees.

For my card I've used a fabulous Happy Hoppers image from Joanna Sheen's Hopping Happy stamp set and coloured it with ProMarkers.

I have cut out my image with a scalloped oval die and my papers are some freebies that came with Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine.   I die cut the sun with my Lawn Fawn Spring Showers die and the sentiment tags are LOTV.

This challenge is being sponsored by:

Who are offering one Lucky Player a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of some of these Premium Dye Ink Pads


who are offering a surprise package of embellishments worth $15.00
(Due to increased postage costs the winner for this prize must reside in the USA)

Sue is also offering this adorable cake eating mouse stamp to a further lucky winner

she must have really liked it, because she bought it twice!
